### How do you raise to a power on a Sharp el-738 business calculato?

I don't know about this specific calculator, but there is probably a button on your calculator that has a "y" with an "x" as a superscript (exponent). Or is could be reversed. But you wanted 2^8, you would push the 2 first, then the exponent button, then the 8, and there's your answer.

Good luck.

Hello,
You have several number display formats : Normal1, Normal2, Sci, ENG
If a number is too small or too large and the calculator cannot display it with the necessary number of digits (to satisfy your of decimal digits) the calculator uses Scientific notation
7.4E-14 =7.4x10^(-14)
If you were to use the norma1 or normal2 format you will have
.0000000000000074 but your calculator displays only the first 10 places

You should learn to use and interpret results in scientific format.

Hope it helps
