### How to put geometric sequence in this calculator?

Are you trying to find a particular term in the geometric sequence? For example, in the geometric sequence 2,4,8,16 to find the 15th term we would use the formula a sub n = a sub 1 x r ^(n-1), where a sub n is the nth term of the geometric sequence a sub 1 is the 1st term of the geometric sequence r is common ratio between successive terms n is the term you are looking for In our example, a sub 1 is 2, r is 2 and n is 15. a sub n = a sub 1 x r ^(n-1) a sub 15 = 2x 2(15-1) a sub 15 = 2 ^ 15 a sub 15 = 32,768 On your calculator, you use the key to the right of x^2 to do x to the nth power.

After you set it to MathIO, pressing the fraction key will display a fraction template where you can enter numerator and denominator as you would by hand (horizontal fraction bar). Also, the calculator will display results as fractions and radicals whenever possible.To perform arithmetic operations on fractions use the regular operation keys (x, +, -, /). The calculator will perform the operations and display the results as fractions (whenever possible).

### How to factor a polynomial equation on casio fx-300es?

Hello,
The Casio FX-300ES does not handle symbolic algebra. So it cannot factor a general polynomial expression. The methods can be found in any book on Algebra.
However if you are interested in approximate factorization of quadratic and cubic polynomials, you can use the calculator to do that. It can solve aX^3 +bX^2+cX+d =0 and the quadratic equations.

If you want to factor a cubic polynomial P3(X) = aX^3+bX^2+cX+d , you write the corresponding cubic equation as aX^3+bX^2+cX=d =0 , then you divide all terms of the equation by a to obtain

X^3+(b/a)X^2+(c/a)X+(d/a)=0.

You use the calculator to solve (approximately) this equation.
Suppose you find the 3 roots X1,X2,and X3. Then the polynomial X^3+(b/a)X^2+(c/a)X+(d/a) can be cast in the factored form (X-X1)(X-X2)(X-X3) and the original polynomial P3(X) can be written as

P3(X) = a*(X-X1)(X-X2)(X-X3)

You can handle the quadratic polynomial the same way.

P2(X) =a*(X-X1)(X-X2) where X1, X2 are the two real roots

Hope it helps.

### How can I change pi value to 3.14 on calculator?

I don't think you can change the pi value on your calculator. However, what you can do is store 3.14 in the memory and instead of using the pi key, recall the number from the memory key. How to use the various memory keys is outlined in the manual. Good luck, Paul http://support.casio.com/storage/en/manual/pdf/EN/004/fx-300ES_PLUS_EN.pdf

### Casio fx-300 ES how do I use the significant figures

That is not something that can be done by calculator. Do all the operations to get a result. Look at the number of significant figures in each number in the chain of operations. Keep the least number of significant figures. The result of a calculation cannot be more precise than the least precise of its components.

### How am i supposed to solve a quadratic equation ?

Use the quadratic formula, or factor the quadratic polynomial. Once factored into a product of two first degree binomials, the roots are obtained by setting (in TURN) each binomial factor equal to zero.
