Sorry, but you're going to have to learn. If the number cannot be displayed in ten digits or the absolute value is less than .001 as in your case, the calculator will automatically switch from Normal to SCI.

Again, sorry, but that's the way the calculator works.

My calculator will give me an answer in scientific notation. How do I change it to decimal form?


To switch out of scientific notation, press SHIFT MODE then select Fix or Norm.

Be aware that the calculator will switch to scientific notation anyway if the magnitude of the answer is too large or too small.

Answers look weird


Your calculator is configured to display results in Scientific notation
8*5=40=4.*10^(01). Exit scientific mode by resetting the calculator or changing the display mode to fixed or normal.

Scientific notation


All calculator use scientific notation if the result is too small or too large. Some, like the Casio FX9750G II, offer you two Normal displays, Norm1 and Norm2 that have different limits when numbers are converted to scientific notations.
Here is how to set one or the other.
In Run>Mat press SHIFT MODE (Setup). Scroll down or up to reach the display line. Press F3 to select Norm1 or Norm2.

I have done the calculation using the the shortcut key [x10^X] to enter the exponent,and I got the correct result.
I also did the calculation by explicitly typing the 10^10 factor and I obtained the correct result.
The syntax error may come from your using the minus - sign for subtraction rather that the change sign key (-)

Half of my home screen is taken up by the graph application. how do i get the screen back to normal? also everytime i do anything the answer is wrong ex. 5x6=3.0e1 ???


You're in a split-screen mode. To get out of it, press MODE, press down-arrow to get to the line beginning "FULL", use left-arrow to highlight the "FULL", press ENTER, then 2ND [QUIT].

It's giving you the correct answer. 5x6 is 3x10^1, which is 30 in scientific notation. To get out of scientific notation, press MODE, highlight "NORMAL" on the top line, press ENTER 2ND [QUIT].

E3 is displayed after an incorrect answer on TI84


ok there is not a problem. the "E" is the calculators way of scientific notation. So if u were to see 1.70 e3 it would really mean 1.70 x 10^3 which is 1700. If these are small numbers and you are getting these "e" ur calculator is in scientific notation mode. Press "mode" then at the top highlight the word "normal" and hit enter. You will be back in normal calculator mode.
