Not all calculators can handle scientific notation, but you can perform scientific notation calculations easily on a scientific calculator . To enter in the numbers, look for a ^ button, which means "raised to the power of" or else y x or x y , which means y raised to the power x or x raised to the y, respectively. Another common button is 10 x , which makes scientific notation easy. The way these button function depends on the brand of calculator, so you'll need to either read the instructions or else test the function. You will either press 10 x and then enter your value for x or else you enter the x value and then press the 10 x button. Test this with a number you know, to get the hang of it.
