I use the Casio fx-83MS model calculator and I don't know how to get rid of the powers when I'm doing a calculation, it really confuses me. If anyone uses this calculator please could you explain powers to me and how to get rid of them, e.g. 8.75 x 10-3 (little minus 3) and i don't know what to do. Thanks!
When it tells you that the anser is 8.75x10-3, it is giving the answer in 'standard form', so the answer is really 0.00875. It does it this way so that if the answer was e.g. 0.00000000000987 it wouldn't fit on the screen so it gives you as much information as possible by using standard form, so it would come up as 9.87x10-12
I don't think there is any way to stop it doing this, I also get confused sometimes.
