Does the E code look like 10.8372487489E12?

If so, the calculator is either set to scientific notation mode OR the result was an answer that was too big to display on the calculator, so it converted it to scientific notation. To convert from scientific notation back to regular notation, move the decimal to the right by the number of times after the E. In this case, the number after the E is 12, so we have to move the decimal to the right 12 times. In this case, I get the final answer as 10 837 248 748 900.

Good luck.

Any questions, let me know.

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.

This has nothing to do with the SCI display mode. Your calculator can only display a certain number of digits. The screen is limited. The maximum number of decimals you can display is 9.

By going into SETUP 1:FSE you can choose the display type FIX, SCI, ENG, NORM1, NORM2, then set the number of decimal digits.

**Be it as it may, if a number is too large or too small it will be displayed in SCIentific format.**

Note: Not all digits are important, only the first ones are. That is why in science one introduces the notion of significant digits. It depends on the precision of all the numbers involved in the calculation. NO RESULT can be more precise than the least precise number involved in its calculation.

Press 2nd [SCI] to switch the calculator to display all results in scientific notation. The results are the same whether you do it in scientific notation or not, it's just how the number is displayed.

It's been a while since my TI calculator died, but I think you can just hit EE (may be "exp" on your model) followed by =.

It looks like you got the same answer. It's just that yours is in fixed decimal notation, while the one they gave is in scientific notation. Press [2ND] [SCI] to switch to scientific notation.
