244140625 is the answer to 25^6 but as for your issue, if you are in scientific mode and punch in 25 X^y (X to the power y) 6 and then press enter, it should display this result.
My guess is simply that you aren't pressing ENTER to get the result of the calculation since we know the calculator is more than capable of displaying the above result on it's screen!

### TI-83 Plus ( finding linear regression) gives wrong y-intercept (b=) value sometimes. Please tell me why?

I get the same answer. Is b wrong? When I do it in Excel I get b= -2E+06, which is -1 797 322.99 rounded to the millions, in scientific notation.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck,

Paul

### When i devide whole numbers into decimals i get exponent answers??

The correct answer would be 8.22E-6 . Even if you're not in scientific or engineering mode, the calculator will automatically switch to scientific mode if the absolute value of the number is less than 0.001 (or won't fit in ten digits).

### I have a TI-83+. My calculator keeps putting everything in scientific notation. For example, "9" comes up "9E0". I have tried resetting but it still won't stop doing that.

Press MODE. Use the arrow keys to highlight NORMAL on the first line and press ENTER. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode screen.

Alternatively, you can set any other display mode on that screen.

### I can't get my TI-83 Plus to stop providing answers in scientific form.

Press MODE to bring up the mode screen. Highlight "NORMAL" on the first line and press ENTER. On the second line highlight either "FLOAT" or the number of digits you want to the right of the decimal point and press ENTER. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode screen.

Be aware that if the answer cannot be displayed in twelve digits or if the magnitude is less than .001 then the calculator will always display the value in scientific notation.

### Scientific notation when not wanted.

Unfortunately, you don't. For numbers whose magnitudes differ too greatly from 1, the calculator automatically switches to scientific (or engineering) notation. You can press MODE and change the display settings, but there is no setting that will force the calculator to show this number without an exponent.

### I Cant get the Correct Answers!

If you're sure the answer isn't really 1.007, check to see if the calculator is in fixed mode. You can change it to scientific notation(that'll give you lots of digits past the decimal place, or I prefer engineering, which is scientific except all powers of ten are in multiples of three).
