Exactly as you would any two numbers. If you are not comfortable with the notation enclose each number in scientific notation between parentheses. This way you can be sure that the priority of operations is respected.

Look for a key that is marked EE, or Exp, or x10^x. To enter a number in
scientific notation, you enter the decimal part, then press the Enter
Exponent key, followed by the exponent. If exponent is negative, you
precede it with a press of the change sign key (-).

Once a number is entered there is no special treatment: multiply it divide, or add it.

To enter the power of 10 with exponent use the Exp key followed by the exponent. If the exponent is negative, you must use the negation key (-) not the - key (for subtraction).

When you press the Exp key you do not type in the 10.

The "problem" is not how to calculate with numbers expressed in Scientific Notation but how to enter a number given to you in scientific notation. Once the number is entered you do not have to do anything special. If you have to multiply it use the (x) button. to add it use the + button, etc.

How to enter a number in scientific notation.

Type in the mantissa (example 6.022)

Press the [X10^x] at the bottom of keypad.

Enter the exponent (example 23)

with this example you will have entered Avogadro's number 6.022x10^23

Other example

1.6 [X10^x] (-) 19 enters the electron charge in Coulombs. The exponent is negative that is why you press the change sign key (-).

All you need to know is how to enter a number in scientific notation. As to the operations you do them the usual way: For example, to multiply you enter a number (in any notation) press the multiplication key then enter the second number (in any notation) and press the = sign to get the result.

The problem is that the result may not be in scientific notation format. But for that you can configure the calculator to always show results in scientific format. Here is how to force that. Press [SHIFT][MODE] to enter (SetUp). In the screen that displays enter the number for the option SCI. You will then be prompted to specify the number of decimal digits. You will enter a number between 0 and 9. If you select 0 you will not have decimals in the result, and if you enter 9 you will have 9 decimals. What is the appropriate number of decimal place to keep in the FINAL result will depend on the number of significant digits in the measuremnets.

To enter a number in scientific notation (ex: 6.25x10^(-4))

You enter the so-called mantissa 6.25

You press the key at the bottom of keypad that is marked as [X10^x]

You enter the change sign (-) followed by the exponent 4

If your calculator is in MathIO you will be able to verify that what was entered is exactly what was neant. In MathIO, you move cursor up or down using the Up or Down arrow. When you finish entering the exponent you use the right arrow to bring cursor to the main level.

45 700 = 45700.00..... Notice the decimal mark inserted after the second 0.

In scientific notation you must have ONE digit before the decimal mark: 4.7500 (it is not finished).

By moving the decimal mark from its original place after the second zero to its new place after the 4, you have divided the number by 10000 (one zero for each position change). To recover the original number you must multiply 4.57 by 10000. This is compacted as *10^4.

Thus 45700=4.57*10^4 or as the calculator displays it 4.57E04

If you are entering a number in scientific notation do not use *10^04, but press the [SHIFT][,] for a TI83Plus, followed by the exponent.

Press 2nd [SCI] to switch the calculator to display all results in scientific notation. The results are the same whether you do it in scientific notation or not, it's just how the number is displayed.

One solution that you might try is to put the scientific numbers in parentheses. For instance open parenthesis, type in the first scientific notation then close parenthesis, next hit the divide key and then open parenthesis and type in the 2nd number in scientific that you are dividing by and then close parenthesis. Hit enter or =. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem, but it is worth a try.
