I don't have this calculator, but let's give this a shot and see if it gives us the correct answer.

Let's try 10 to the exponent -2. The rule for negative exponents is to put 1 on the top and the term with a positive exponent on the bottom. In this case, it would be 1 on the top and 10 to the exponent 2 on the bottom, or 1 / 100 or 0.01.

In the calculator, enter 10, hit the x to the power of y key, left bracket (, the negative key (-), 2, the right bracket ), and finally the = key. You might not have to enter the left and right brackets, but I like to enter them to understand what I enter in brackets is the exponent.

Let me know if it works and if you have any other questions.

Good luck.

Paul

The key you are looking for looks like y raised to the exponent x. It is below the "hyp" key. To determine an exponent, enter you base, hit the y to the x key and enter the exponent.

For example, 3 to the power of 4, enter 3, hit the y to the x key, and enter 4 and hit the = key.

Good luck.

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.

To enter exponents (1, 2, 3, -3..) use the general power key marked with Y^x or X^y or ^. Enter the base press the general power key then the exponent. If exponent is negative try enclosing it in parentheses. use the change sign key (-) to enter the negative sign before the exponent.

To enter power of 10, you can use the shortcut key marked Exp (the 10 must not appear when the Exp is used to enter exponents for power of 10).

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.

Which exponent function?

To enter an exponent of ten, use 2nd [EE].

To raise ten to an exponent, use 2nd [10^x].

To raise e to an exponent, use 2nd [e^x].

To raise an arbitrary number to an exponent, use ^.

To enter an exponent of ten, use 2nd [EE].

To raise ten to an exponent, use 2nd [10^x].

To raise e to an exponent, use 2nd [e^x].

To raise an arbitrary number to an exponent, use ^.

Type in the mantissa, then the EE key (for Enter Exponent) above the 7 key, then the exponent. If it's a negative exponent, press the (-) key to the right of the decimal point before entering the exponent.

Uh yes it will allow you to enter a negative exponent.... press the numbers you want then hit EXP button, then hit the +/- button and then the exponent. 60 % of the time, it works...... everytime.

Hi Loringh,

see, high exponents are +ve powers, while low exponents are -ve powers.

e.g. for 1200000=1.2X10^6=1.2E+6 (high exponents)

for 0.0000000012=1.2X10^-9=1.2E-9 (low exponents)

I think so easy ?

Thanks

Key sequence is:

2.5

X

8

2nd

10 to the power x

/

2.25

X

5

2nd

10 to the power x

=

Unless you mean (2.5x10 (exponent 8))/(2.25 x10 (exponent5)), in which case you need to change the last "X" in the sequence to "/", or stick the appropriate brackets into the sequence.

Note that exponents are like trig functions, enter value first, then the operator, so 10 (exponent 8) is entered as "8", "2nd", "10 to power x", just like sin 60 is entered "60", "SIN"
