Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

# It still gives me an incorrect answer. In the calculator I am trying to solve: 1.0*10 -14power / 3.3 *10 -12 power. The answer it gives me is 3.03 *10 to the -27 power. That is an incorrect answer. The answer is 3.03 *10 to the -3 power. That answer would be completely incorrect on the exam. I dont understand what the problem is?

Apparently you're calculating 1x10^-14 / 3.3x10^12
Note the positive exponent on the denominator. Make sure you use the (-) key to enter a negative exponent.

Change the payments-per-year to 1 to get the correct answer. Press 2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER.

To pay off a loan of \$3245 at 12% annual interest, you can either make 6 monthly payments of \$559.91 and pay it off in half a year or make 6 annual payments of \$789.27 and pay it off in six years.

Personally, I'd go with the regular, or the Plus, staying away from the Platinum. There's nothing on the calculator or package to distinguish the Plus from the regular, but the Plus uses two coin batteries while the regular uses three button batteries. The Plus is just like the regular, except a LOT faster.

### I'm using a Ti-84 plus and when I try simple division it gives incorrect answers. For example, when I enter 5/2 it answers 3. When I entered 50/100 it answers 1.

You apparently have your calculator set to display no digits to the right of the decimal point. 5/2 is 2.5, which rounds to 3, and 50/100 is 0.5, which rounds to 1.

To change the display setting, press MODE, highlight the desired settings on the first two lines, then press ENTER followed by 2ND QUIT. Try setting "NORMAL" and "FLOAT" and see what results you get now.

### My calculator does not give the right answer as in the textbook.1-n 12 % 210000 fv but the pv is incorrect ? should be 187500 but i get 207920 ?

207920 is the correct result for one month at 12%, compounded monthly. 187500 is the result for one year at 12%, compounded annually. Set P/Y to 1 and try again.

### My solver is giving me the wrong answers

Hi,
I have no way of knowing why it is giving you wrong answers. If you have an idea what the answer might be, you should use this knowledge to help the calculator find your solution, either by giving a better guess (initial value) or by restricting the domain of values, instead of -1e99 and 1E99.

It is also possible that you may have set up the problem incorrectly. For this reason I am describing how to use the Solver and the solve( command.

You have two ways to solve an equation with the TI84Plus

1. The solve( command the syntax of which is solve( expr, var,guess, {lower_limit, upper_limit}). Here expr is the expression (without =0), var is the variable you solve for, guess is you estimate of the solution, lower_limit and upper_limit are the bounds of the domain where you are looking for a solution. Of course your guess must be between theses limits.
2. The Interactive Solver.
The solve( command

• The solve command is accessed through the catalog of commands [2nd][0] (CATALOG).
• Press [LN] (S) to let the cursor jump to the first command that starts with s.
• Scroll down to reach the solve( command.
• Select it and press [ENTER]. The command echoes on main screen.
• Enter the different arguments: expr, var, guess, etc.
• Close the right parenthesis and press [ENTER].
• Wait for the solution to be displayed.
The interactive Solver

Press [MATH][0:Solver]. You see what is on the first picture (I entered K-0.5*V^2). Press [ENTER]. You see what is on the right picture.

In the interactive solver you enter a value for all the parameters, constants, for all, save the entity you are solving for, here V. So you must clear the 0 to the right of the = sign after the V. when finished you press [ALPHA][ENTER] (SOLVE).
Here is what I get for the small exemple I chose.

Left -rt=0 shows that the root was found to within the calculator's tolerance.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
