To enter powers of 10 you use the [EE] key.

EX: 1.07 x10^(38) type in 1.07[EE]38 [=]

Sorry, you can't. the TI-30XA limits exponents to +/-99.

Two keys can be used to enter negative exponents on the TI-30Xa scientific
calculator; the [y^x] key or the [EE] key. The [y^x] key is used for
all exponents while the [EE] key is used for scientific notation only.

The examples below will demonstrate how to use both keys:

1) Entering 7^-2.

• Press [7] [y^x] [2] [+/-] [=].

• The calculator will display: 0.20408163.

2) 1*10^-3.

• Press [1] [EE] [3] [+/-] [=].

• The calculator will display: 0.001

Most simple way is: 5 [x²] [=]

For arbitrary exponents, you can use 5 [*yx*] 2 [=].

If you're asking about entering powers of ten, use the EE (enter exponent) key just above the 7. If you're asking about exponentiation, use the y^x key just above the divide.

Use the key marked "EE" (for Enter Exponent). For example, to enter 1.2 times 10 to the 17th, press 1 . 2 EE 1 7

Hi,

You have a key labeled [Y to the x], use it for all the powers or roots that do not have a dedicated key or key sequence. Let the key be [^]

Ex: 13.675 to the power 1.33 is entered as 13.675 [^] (1.33) [=].

The result is 32.41778634

Ex: (-64)[^](2/3) [=] gives 16 as result. The (-) is the change sign key

Ex: (2.87655)^(-6.778) is entered as 2.87655 [^] ( (-) 6.778 ) [=] 0.0007758

The (-) is the change sign (or the negative of), not the regular minus. When you have a negative exponent or a complicated exponent, it is safer to enclose the whole exponent inside parentheses.

Hope it helps.

You can download the guidebook for this calculator from TI here.

From page 16:

To enter a number in scientific notation:

1) Enter up to 10 digits for the base (mantissa). If negative, press the +/- key. (The key has two curvy arrows between the + and - but I can't do that on my keyboard.)

2) Press the EE key.

3) Enter a 1 or 2-digit exponent. If negative, press +/- either before or after entering exponent.

They give the example 1.2345 +/- EE +/- 65 which would display -1.2345 -65.

(2x3^2) divided by (2x3^(-2))

just make sure to use double parenthesis around the negative exponent so that you get the right answer
