Every time I try to calculate 1000-490= It turns the 1000 into -1000 and will not do the calculation at all unless I punch it in like 1000-490+= but then the answers are all negatives.

I had this problem also and just fixed it. I hit 2nd key...don't hold it, (it should say 2nd in the lower left corner across from the DEG) then click the K button (also the divide key). The arrow and DEG will remain, but do not affect simple math calculations. Hope this helps!

Sounds like you could have $100.00 in your memory. The LCD will show your current calculation but the print out might include anything you added to M+/-. Try clearing your M*

Press the MATH key to bring up the Math menu. Option 3 gives you cubed, option 4 gives you cube root, option 5 gives you nth root.

For example, 3rd root of 8: MATH 4 8 ENTER gives 2.

4th root of 16: 4 MATH 5 16 ENTER gives 2.

Hi,

The calculator has two Input/Output modes: MthIO and LineIO. Since I do not know exactly what you mean by "basic math" mode or "basic form" I must summarize some properties of each mode so that you can recognize your "basic math" mode.

To set the LineIO as the default, you press the key sequence: [SHIFT][MODE] (SETUP) and select [2:LineIO].

Hope it helps.

Thank you for rating the solution.

- In MthIO, you have access to the multistory templates to enter fractions with a horizontal fraction bar etc. the exponents for the powers are raised above the main line, etc.
- In LineIO, what you enter in calculator is all on the same line, fraction and radical results are displayed as decimal numbers, etc.

To set the LineIO as the default, you press the key sequence: [SHIFT][MODE] (SETUP) and select [2:LineIO].

Hope it helps.

Thank you for rating the solution.

Hello,

Unlike other, less sophisticated calculators, the TI83Plus /TI84Plus /TI84Plus Silver Edition do not have a simple key or a command for improper fractions. However there is a command -->Frac accessible through**[MATH] key [1:-->Frac]** that expresses a result in a proper fraction format.

Here is how you would enter you calculation

3+ 1/2 +4+1/8 [MATH][1:-->Frac][ENTER] result is 61/8

You can also ease a bit on the typing by mentally adding 3 and 4

7+ 1/2 +1/8 [MATH][1:--Frac][ENTER]

You should know about the other command that converts a fraction in decimal format.**[MATH][2:-->Dec][ENTER] **

If you enter this command just after the one handled above, your screen shows [Ans][-->Dec] on one line and the result 7.625 on the next. If you do not enter a number the calculator uses the last CALCULATED result, which is stored in the system variable [Ans]

Hope it helps
