Largely depends on what calculator you have. On my Casio fx-83ES one would typeOn a scientific calculator, how do you get a root of a number for an exponiental? Ex.-.653846^1/12=

I was taking 1/12 and making it so I can make it exponent for .653846. Obviously wrong. What am I doing here??

Code:

`-0.653846 x[sup]y[/sup] ( 1 / 12)`

Im still getting it wrong though. What do you get to check the answerLargely depends on what calculator you have. On my Casio fx-83ES one would type

although y is a box - can't show it on my keyboard.Code:`-0.653846 x[SUP]y[/SUP] ( 1 / 12)`

Hi goosey00,Got it!!! Thank you!!!

Welcome to MHB! When you make a post you might notice a yellow column on the right hand side. If you look to the top of this column and click "Scientific Calculator" then a calculator will popup where you can practice making these calculations. What did you get for your final answer?

I'm a little confused. Is this a new problem or the same one? If it's a new one then you can make a new thread in a different section of the site, but if it's still about using your calculator then let's continue the discussion herePurchasing power=

For the orginal purchasing power f(t)=1.08 (.926127)

For the one part I got at f(t)= .40 (.931511)

They want me to know where they intersect. If you need more info, let me know

Either way can you post the complete problem?

1. Do you want to valuateOn a scientific calculator, how do you get a root of a number for an exponiental? Ex.-.653846^1/12=

I was taking 1/12 and making it so I can make it exponent for .653846. Obviously wrong. What am I doing here??

[tex]\displaystyle{\sqrt[12]{-.653846}}[/tex]

You'll get an error message because an even root of a negative number has not a real value.

2. Do you want to valuate

(exp(-.653846))^(1/12)

Determine first [tex]\displaystyle{e^{-.653846} \approx 0.52}[/tex]

and afterwards the 12
