<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors. <br /><br />At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers. <br />If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to <b>disable</b> <b>the WriteView display mode</b>. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.<br /><b>Disabling WriteView<br /></b><br />Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.<br /><br />There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE<br /><br />Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.<br /><br />To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.<br /><br /><b>NOTE</b>: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode. <br /></span>

It depends on the base of the power function.

**For exponential function** use [SHIFT][LN] (e^x) followed by the exponent value. If exponent is negative use the change sign +/- key before exponent.

For a**general power**, type in the base (number), then press the [Y^x] key followed by the exponent.

For a**power of 10,** use the [Exp] key. Careful here. For example to enter 1.6x10^(-19), type in 1.6, press the [Exp] key, then the change sign key +/- and the exponent. Press [=]

**1 . 6 [Exp] +/- 19 [=]**

Hi there,

Type in your base and then press the button that says y with an x as an exponent (last row of the small buttons, second from the left). and then type in your exponent.

If you mean the key to raise a number to an exponent, it's the key marked "y^x", two keys above the "7" key. If you mean the key to enter an exponent of ten, it's the key marked "Exp", just above the "7" key.

Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.

There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE

Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.

To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.

Hello,

Frankly, I do not understand what you want.

I will try to guess.

Calculate the exponential of 135

Use the [2ndF][LN] key to access the exponential e^x

[2ndF][e^x] 135 [=] result is 4.263389948 x 10^(58)

or 4.263389948E 58

Represent 135 in scientific notation

135 =1.35 x10^2 or 1.35 E2

Represent 135 in Engineering Notation

135=135E0

If none of the above answers your question, maybe you should state clearly what you want, I am no seer.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

The factorial function is shown on you calculator as**n! **To calculate factorial 4 you proceed as follows **4[2ndF][n!][=] this gives 24**

Hope it helps.
