Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 Xa Solar Calculator

# How would I be able to enter a varrible and get the actual solution for it on my TI-30X11S Calculator? Like for example, enter this into the calculator: 5(a - 12)= 8(3a 2) and get this: a = - 4? Am I able to do that? If so, how?

### Here's the problem x - 5 = 10, how do I get the actual = sign to show up like this example?

It depends on the calculator. The Casios have two = signs. The main one tells the calculator to evaluate the expression entered. It is at the bottom of the face of the calculator.
There is a second key that helps you enter the = sign without executing the command. To type in that = sign, you press the ALPHA key followed by the CALC key. The = sign is entred. Usually that sign is used when you want to enter an equation to be solved.

What I said above to some Casio calculators. However your question is under the Texas Instruments Calculators heading, and I have no idea which TI calculator you have in mind,

### How to calculate cube root on simple calculator

That depends on how simple a calculator. I'll give some examples below for calculating the cube root of 8.

On a TI-86, press 3 2nd [MATH] F5 MORE F4 8 ENTER

If the calculator has a "^" or "y^x" key, raise 8 to the 1/3 power. Again, on the TI-86, press 8 ^ ( 1 / 3 ) ENTER

If the calculator has a logarithm key, take the logarithm, divide it by three, then take the antilogarithm. Again, on the TI-86, press 2nd [e^x] ( ln 8 / 3 ) ENTER

On a slide rule, place the hairline over the number on the K scale and read the cube root on the D scale.

Depending on your version of the TI-30, you will either find a button with a y to the exponent of x or a button that is the carot (^) sign. you would type (1.0075)^(-240), where ^ is the appropriate button (y^x or just ^).

### Can i do sigma notation on a ti-30xa calculator?

No. There are some keys on the TI-30XA that may make you think so, but they are statistical operations. For example, you can enter values using the Sigma+ key and the TI-30XA can give you the sum of the values entered, sum of the squares, mean value, standard deviation and so on.

You cannot do calculations like "Give me the sum of all integers from 1 to 100" with the TI-30XA, you'd need a far more sophisticated calculator.
