You have the calculator set to round everything in the display to zero digits after the decimal point. To change this, press SHIFT [DISP] and then a digit representing the number of digits you want to the right of the decimal point.

I have a TI-84 and when i put a negative number it appears Ans before how can change that?


Use the (-) key to the right of the decimal point key when entering a negative number. The - key to the right of the 6 key is for subtracting something from something else. In order to subtract from something, if you don't specify anything then the calculator uses the previous answer as designated by "Ans." The same thing happens with the + key for example, because it adds something to something else.

For the "-" did you use the subtract key "-" or the negative key "(-)" to the right of the decimal point?
If you used the subtract key then you need something between it and the "=" since the "0.5x" has to be subtracted from something.

How do i enter a negative exponent on a TI-30XIIS?


Press the (-) key located just to the right of the decimal point key before entering the exponent. Don't use the - key to the right of the 6 and 9 keys, this is to subtract one number from another. The (-) key is for negating numbers.

I have an Casio fx-300ES, and im taking an honors physical science class and i need to know how to divide/multiply/add/subtract in scienctific notation. For example: 6.25x10(to the negative 4) / 4.1x10(to...


All you need to know is how to enter a number in scientific notation. As to the operations you do them the usual way: For example, to multiply you enter a number (in any notation) press the multiplication key then enter the second number (in any notation) and press the = sign to get the result.

The problem is that the result may not be in scientific notation format. But for that you can configure the calculator to always show results in scientific format. Here is how to force that. Press [SHIFT][MODE] to enter (SetUp). In the screen that displays enter the number for the option SCI. You will then be prompted to specify the number of decimal digits. You will enter a number between 0 and 9. If you select 0 you will not have decimals in the result, and if you enter 9 you will have 9 decimals. What is the appropriate number of decimal place to keep in the FINAL result will depend on the number of significant digits in the measuremnets.

To enter a number in scientific notation (ex: 6.25x10^(-4))
You enter the so-called mantissa 6.25
You press the key at the bottom of keypad that is marked as [X10^x]
You enter the change sign (-) followed by the exponent 4

If your calculator is in MathIO you will be able to verify that what was entered is exactly what was neant. In MathIO, you move cursor up or down using the Up or Down arrow. When you finish entering the exponent you use the right arrow to bring cursor to the main level.

How do I program tax rate into my calculator?
Non-printing models (also applies to HR-8TE printing calculator):

1. Press [AC]
2. Hold [SET/%] key for about 2 seconds
3. Press [TAX+]
4. Input the tax rate
5. Press [SET/%]


Printing models (except HR-8TE):

1. Have calculator in "print" mode
2. Press [CA]
3. Hold [SET/%] key for about 3 seconds
4. Input the tax rate
5. Press [TAX+]
6. Press [SET/%]
^Top I am having a problem registering the ClassPad 300, it keeps telling me my product key is wrong.
Enter only the numerals, not the letters.
^Top What features do our calculators have?
The attached chart shows comparisons of the different calculator models. This includes graphing, scientific and printing calculators. download the chart here
^Top What is the [F CUT 5/4] switch or [DEC] F, 0, 2 button for?
The HR-8TE/HR-8TM have a [DEC] key with F, 0, 2, and 5/4 over it, while many other calculators models have a switch labeled [F CUT 5/4].
The button or switch can control rounding off to a certain number of decimal places. F is floating point (no F indicator on screen), 0 rounds off to 0 places after decimal point, and 2 rounds off to 2 places after decimal point.
The 5/4 applies to either the 0 or 2 modes, and describes the type of rounding off that is performed. The calculator will round down if the digit after the one you are rounding to is 4 or lower, and round up if the digit is 5 or higher.
^Top What is the [5,4,3,2,1,0 ADD (2)] switch used for?
This switch is used to determine how many decimal places your answer is displayed in.
ADD (2) is often used for monetary calculations, so that it is not necessary to enter the decimal point. It is automatically placed two decimal places from the end for cents. For example, entering 123 will display as 1.23.
^Top Why do I get 111.1111... when I calculate 100+10%?
This is a markup on price procedure. The formula is as follows:
Markup%=(Markup Price-Cost)/(Markup Price)
^Top Why do I get the wrong answer when doing a percent calculation?
Make sure that you are following the correct procedure.
Adding 10%: 200 [×] 10 [%] [+]
Subtract 10%: 200 [×] 10 [%] [-]
^Top What tests are calculators permitted for?
AP Calculus requires a graphing calculator.
Any graphing or scientific calculator is permitted on the following as long as it does not have a QWERTY keyboard, electronic writing pad or a pen-input/stylus-driven interface:
PSAT/NMSQT, SAT I
SAT II Math, IC & IIC
AP Statistics (graphing expected)

The printer provides a printout of your calculations but does not count them.
The printer is on and an item count of additions and subtractions to or from
the register is printed when sub-totaled or totaled.
The GT position controls whether or not the totals from the independent add
register are accumulated in the grand total register.
ROUND Rounds the result of a calculation to the selected number of decimal places.

Truncates the result to the selected number of decimal places.
Rounds the result up or down according to its value. For example, when the
DECIMAL switch is set to 2, the result is rounded up if the third decimal
position is 5 or more and rounded down if it is 4 or less.
Rounds the result up to the selected number of decimal places.

PRINT KEY: To save paper you can only print what is displayed, even in non-print mode. Pressing after the entry of a number will print the entry with the symbol “#” even in non-print mode. Pressing will insert a separator into a number entry such as a code, date, etc. Separators are displayed as a period and dashes but printed as periods. MEMORY + KEY / PRINT ON / OFF KEY: Pressing selects print mode or non-print mode. Cause the calculator to operate in a display / print or display only mode, depending upon the calculator’s present state. “P” on the display: Print mode. “NP” on the display: Non-print mode. MEMORY – KEY / DECIMAL SELECTION KEY: Pressing sets the number of decimal places in the result. “F” on the display: The answer is displayed in the floating decimal system. “3, 2, 1, 0” on the display: Presets the number of decimal places in the answer. “A” on the display (Add mode): The decimal point in addition and subtraction entries is automatically positioned to the 2nd digit from the lowest digit of entry number. Use of the add mode permits addition and subtraction of numbers without entry of the decimal point. Use of , and will automatically override the add mode and decimally correct answers will be printed.

Java code for adding octal, hexadecimal subtracting binary,


Hello desireejane,


One method is to do the following

  1. Convert the octal, hexadecimal or binary to decimal.
  2. Add or Subtract the decimal normally
  3. Convert the result back to octal, hexadecimal or binary.

  • Convert the octal to decimal:

public static long octalToDecimal(String octal) throws NumberFormatException {
// Initialize result to 0
long res = 0;

// Do not continue on an empty string
if (octal.isEmpty()) {
throw new NumberFormatException("Empty string is not an octal number");
}

// Consider each digit in the string
for (int i = 0; i < octal.length(); i++) {
// Get the nth char from the right (first = 0)
char n = octal.charAt(octal.length() - (i+1));

int f = (int) n - 48;
// Check if it's a valid bit
if (f < 0 || f > 7) {
// And if not, die horribly
throw new NumberFormatException("Not an octal number");
} else {
// Only add the value if it's a 1
res
+= f*Math.round(Math.pow(2.0, (3*i)));
}
}

return res;
}
