Hi Sdcadreaming,

To enter an exponent:
1. enter the number that you will be adding an exponent to
2. press the key that looks like an up arrow. this button is located between the division and clear buttons. this button is sort of like a "to the power of" button.
3. enter the number of the exponent you would like to use.

I hope this information was helpful, if you have any comments or questions reply to this post and i will help as much as possible

How do i get a negative exponent?


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.

How to use it for exponents?


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).

How do I do exponents on this calculator?


Two keys can be used to enter negative exponents on the TI-30Xa scientific calculator; the [y^x] key or the [EE] key. The [y^x] key is used for all exponents while the [EE] key is used for scientific notation only.
The examples below will demonstrate how to use both keys:

1) Entering 7^-2.

• Press [7] [y^x] [2] [+/-] [=].
• The calculator will display: 0.20408163.
2) 1*10^-3.

• Press [1] [EE] [3] [+/-] [=].
• The calculator will display: 0.001

Depending on your version of the TI-30, you will either find a button with a y to the exponent of x or a button that is the carot (^) sign. you would type (1.0075)^(-240), where ^ is the appropriate button (y^x or just ^).

Exponents


To enter decimal exponents, use the x10^x key below the 3, followed by the exponent. For example, to enter one million, press 1 x x10^x 6 and see 1000000 (actually, the leading one is optional: if you press x10^x without a value, the calculator will supply a 1).

To raise a value to a number, use the x^ key above the sin, followed by the exponent. For example, to calculate 2^3, press 2 x^ 3 = and see 8.

2 to the twelve power equals what


Hello,
Between the x`squared key and the log key there is a key with an x with a raised small figure of a solid square. That is the key you use to enter arbitrary exponents.
  1. If calculator is in MathIO ( a Math indicator appears on the upper band of the screen), enter the base of the power (here 2). A number 2 with a raised empty square appears.The cursor will blink in the raised square. Enter there the exponent (here 12) and press [=]. Result 4096 appears at the bottom of the screen.
  2. If in LineIO (no Math indicator appears on the narrow band at the top of the screen), press 2 and then the key I talked about above. On the screen a number 2 appears with a hat and a left parenthesis. Type in the exponent (here 12) , the right parenthesis and press [=]. The calculator should display 4096.000...
In the exemples above I used 2^12. But you can enter any base (2, 3, 5.5, 16/47, ) and any exponent ( 12, 13/48, 0.007654, even negative values).
Hope it helps

1.19x10-4=?


You can download the guidebook for this calculator from TI here.

From page 16:
To enter a number in scientific notation:
1) Enter up to 10 digits for the base (mantissa). If negative, press the +/- key. (The key has two curvy arrows between the + and - but I can't do that on my keyboard.)
2) Press the EE key.
3) Enter a 1 or 2-digit exponent. If negative, press +/- either before or after entering exponent.

They give the example 1.2345 +/- EE +/- 65 which would display -1.2345 -65.
