Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator

# TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. When dividing negative powers of ten by other negative powers of 10 the calculator it just adds the the negative powers together. How do i fix this? An example: 5*10^-10 / 5*10^-10 = 1*10^-20 I use the correct negative sign and i am normal mode ( I have also tried scientific mode which has not worked) I use the 10^x second button located under the LOG button next to the number 7. Please Help

To enter an exponent, positive or negative, use the EE (Enter Exponent) key (the shifted function of the , key just above the 7 key). Do 5 2ND [EE] (-) 1 0 / 5 2ND [EE] (-) 1 0 ENTER and you'll see 1.

What I think you're doing (I can't be sure without seeing your keystrokes) is calculating
5*10^-10/5*10^-10 which is interpreted as (5*10^-10/5)*10^-10, which indeed is 10^-20.

### I am trying to divide a power of 10 by and another number to a neg power of 10

For integer powers of 10 you can use the EE shortcut. [2nd][,] displays E.
For non-integer values of the exponent (such as -5.34) you must use the key sequence [2nd][LOG] (10^x) then enter your negative non-integer exponent.

### I have a Texas Instruments TI-84 plus silver edition calculator, and I need to know if it has a exponent key?

If you want to raise a number to another, use the ^ key located just above the divide key.
For natural antilogarithm (exponentiation of e), use 2ND [e^x] (the shifted function of the LN key).
For common antilogarithm (exponentiation of 10), use 2ND [10^x] (the shifted function of the LOG key).
To enter a decimal exponent as part of a number, use 2ND [EE] (the shifted function of the comma key, located just above the 7 key.

### Hello where is the fraction button on the ti-84 plus silver edition

There isn't one. If you want to convert a value from decimal to fraction, use the >Frac function (press MATH 1). If you want to enter a fraction, simply enter the numerator, divide, then the denominator.

For example, to calculate 1/4 + 1/3, press
( 1 / 4 ) + ( 1 / 3 ) MATH 1 ENTER
and you'll see 7/12.
