Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Calculator

Ad

The ^ key is just above and to the left of the 7 key.

Of course, a number smaller than 10^-2 raised to 1460 is going to be smaller than 10^-2900, which is going to be indistinguishable from zero on just about any calculator.

Exponents of 10 are entered by pressing [2nd][X^-1] (EE).

For powers of any base, enter the base, press the [^] (below PI) then enter exponent. Use the (-) white key if exponent is negative.

Break the problem up into smaller pieces.

There's a limit to how big a number the calculator can represent. Numbers as large as 10 times 10 to the 100 simply can't fit into the calculator. For really large numbers, calculate the mantissa and the exponent (power) separately.

For example, to calculate 2^360, first calculate 2^300: press 2 ^ 3 0 0 = and see 2.037036*10^90. Divide by 10^90 (and remember the 90): / 1 0 y^x 9 0 = and see 2.04. Multiply by 2^60: * 2 ^ 6 0 = and see 2.348543*10^18. Multiply that by the 10^90 we took out earlier by adding exponents and write down 2.348543*10^108. That number is too large to fit into the calculator but we got it by calculating the 2.348543 and the 108 separately.

To enter exponents of an arbitrary base, use the key that is marked [Y^x]

To enter exponent of 10 press the [EE] key. In scientific notation display, the exponent of the power of 10 is displayed to the right of the mantissa.

If you use the exponent rules you do not need to use a

calculator for this particular case. Anyway to enter power of 10 exponents you use the [EE] key. See screen capture below.

20 [EE] (+ -)9 [X] 1[EE] (+ -) 9
