Two easy ways.

1. You can use the factorial function, which is the shifted function of the 3 key. Calculate 52! and divide it by 5!.
2. You can use the nPr function, which the is the shifted function of the 9 key. 52!/5! is 52 nPr 47 (47 is 52-5).

when i type is in i can't get the right answer

What do you get when you type in 5 2 2nd [!] / 5 2nd [!] = ?

What do you get when you type in 5 2 2nd [nPr] 4 7 = ?

6.721514599 to the power of 65. On my answer sheet it says 2,598,960.

52!/5! is 6.72E65, so the calculator is giving you the correct answer for what you asked of it.

2598960 happens to be 52 C 5, which is 52! / (5! * 47!). Try this:
5 2 2nd [!] / 5 2nd [!] / 4 7 2nd [!] = and
52 nCr 5 =

Do both of those give you the expected answer?

The following examples will demonstrate how to convert decimals into fractions using the TI-30Xa and TI-30Xa Solar. Please be aware that TI-30Xa Solar School Edition calculators do not have this functionality.

Example: Convert .25 to 1/4
- Input .25, press [2nd][<--] (says F<>D above it).

** F<>D means fraction to decimal, decimal to fraction.

Example: Convert 1.38 to 1_19/50

- Input 1.38, press [2nd][<--].

Example: Convert 9.75 to 9_3/4

### Can i do sigma notation on a ti-30xa calculator?

No. There are some keys on the TI-30XA that may make you think so, but they are statistical operations. For example, you can enter values using the Sigma+ key and the TI-30XA can give you the sum of the values entered, sum of the squares, mean value, standard deviation and so on.

You cannot do calculations like "Give me the sum of all integers from 1 to 100" with the TI-30XA, you'd need a far more sophisticated calculator.
