*10^x hiccup on Casio fx-991CW Classwiz - Matt Agajanian - 08-17-2023 11:33 PM
Hi all. From one of my latest posts on the Casio Calculator Collector Facebook group, there is a peculiar glitch with the x10^x button. The *10^x portion of the typed in value is not connected to its mantissa. This glitch is evident when a division is part of the mathematical expression input. For example, take 5/8*10^6. Rather than the expected result of 6.25*10^-7, the result on the 991CW returns 6.25*10^5. Then, as I enter the expression using the x10^x button with parentheses around the 8*10^6 value, such as 5/(8x10^6), the correct answer of 6.25*10^-5 is displayed.

Answer is correct if you use the fraction display entry mode… RE: *10^x hiccup on Casio fx-991CW Classwiz - Matt Agajanian - 08-18-2023 04:08 AM

But you shouldn’t need to remember to enter the expression that way RE: *10^x hiccup on Casio fx-991CW Classwiz - Albert Chan - 08-18-2023 10:51 AM
Technically, [×10^] is the old [EXP] key A [×10^] B == (A×10^B) // note the parentheses. But, I am wondering if "hiccup" is intentional: a feature, not a bug. In line mode: 5 [÷] 8 [×10^] 6 is displayed as 5÷8×10^6 5 [÷] 8 [×] [10^] 6 is displayed as 5÷8×10^(6 Based on displayed line, only difference is the extra "(". It may be more natural to assume both are equivalent. |
