Just to be sure the way to express 10 to the power of 6 would be 10^6.

To express 10 to the power of -6 as 10^(-6).

10 to the power 6 can be written 1000000, or 10 ^ 6 , or 10 root 6.
10 to the power of -6 is the same as 1/1000000, or 10 ^ -6, or 10 root -6, or .000001 .

I need a clarity how to convert these exponents to fractions

-62 means a number multiplied by itself twice
So in this case it is -6 x -6 = 36 - since -x- = +
If this was -6-2 the negative power means it's a fractional indice so first make it look like a fraction
1/-62 now it looks like a fraction (inverse) and the power mow looks like a normal square
Coz its still a negative number -6 x -6 = 36
So the answer is now 1/36

So when it is a minus power, first turn it into a fraction, then calculate as normal
Note: every number has a sign, it is either + or minus.
By convention, we always assume it is a plus unless stated otherwise.
To make sure u remember this fact put a plus sign in front of every number if no sign is showing
Its like if u say u have a car, what u really mean is you have 1 car. But u drop the 1 coz everyone takes for granted u meant 1 car, 1 house, 1 friend etc
Every power we assume its + unless otherwise stated.
So when a minus is put in front of the power, its saying make it a fraction first!
Maths is a game and games have rules.
This rule is a minus in front of power (indice) change to fraction form first!
So if it is 2-3 - the power -3 is saying turn it into a fraction first so
1/23 = 1/ 2x2x2 = 1/8
If it had of been 23 notice how no signs shown because we take for granted they r all +
Let's show them
+2+3 since it's a plus 3 we don't need to change it to a fraction and since it is a plus 2
We have +2 x + 2 x +2 and a +x+ x+ = +
2x2x2 = 8
Its easier to just do 23 = multiply the 2 by itself 3 times
2x2x2 = 8
When doing fractions of any type I prefer showing them as being more obviously top/bottom
1
-
2

Format and for that free hand is easier as typing is hard...lol
Ie
Numerator Denominator
When using a number that's a fraction it is better tro enclose it in brackets
As every indice is of the form - numberpower
The number can just as easily be a fractional number like a 1/3
So (1/3)2 is a third multiplied by itself
1/3 x 1/3 = 1x1/3x3 = 1/9
If it was (1/3)-2 then first u must get rid of the minus power by turning it into a fraction
1/(1/3)2
1/1/3 x 1/3
1/1/9
And 1 divided by a ninth =
1 to be cont - tired..lol

### Kenmore #970-155320 how much cold it has...cant find it its for bed bug killing experiment....

Turned to their coldest setting, most properly functioning household refrigerators can attain minus 6 to minus 10 degrees in a normal (70-78 degrees) room. Room (ambient) temperature affects cooling performance. Colder temps will cause the unit to run significantly more.

### Formula to calculate rating of capacitors in airconditioners

It's not fixed formula, but as per basic rule, easy method tocalculate for motor capacitor. (2650 X full load amps) divided by supply voltage(mentionedin capacitor)= MFD. (Plus or minus 10% to 15%) Ex: 1 Tr which gives full load amps of 6 amps (2650 X 6)=15900 divided by 240(VAC)volts=66.25MFD (10% to 15% plus or minus) You can fix 56.32 mfd or 76.18mfd So, you can go in between 56.32 mfd and 76.18 mfd. If you calculate of 440VAC capacitor, it will be 36 mfd. Hope, it will be helpful . Thanks.

### Anytime I try to multiply .001X.001, any decimal beginning with a zero, I get an error. For example, .001X.001=1 E-6...My mode is set in normal, and I reset it to default, what am I missing?

This is not an error. .001 multiplied by .001 is 1E-6.

If the absolute value of a number is less than .001, the calculator will always display it in scientific notation. 1E-6 is interpreted as 1 times 10 to the minus sixth power.

### I have a Tedelex Ec Rp 4389 Rear Projection with a convergence problem i replaced ic(stk392-560)with(stk392-570) and it is still the same i noticed that pin 10 of the ic only gets 4.5v is that normal

Pin 10 should be at the positive convergence power voltage. The ICs run on a plus and minus voltage from a power supply. Usually +/- 15V to +/- 30V. (don't know this brand.) (not sure if -570 is replacement for -560; could be.) I'd look through main power supply for these 2 voltages. Ohm to pin 10, etc. Check PS fuses there.

### How do you subtract on this calculator? if I do 10 minus it puts that minus in front of 10 and it can not subtract?

Its a little strange. Suppose you want subtract 10 from 38. Do this:
Enter 38 press plus key.
Enter 10, press minus key.
Press the equal sign. You will have the result.

### Norlake freezer 6x6 not freezing enough

Normally freezers are kept at zero. Most health departments will not allow the temp to be higher than plus 10. If you want to store ice cream, you need to be at minus 10 degrees to minus 15 degrees.

let me know if I can be of any further help.

### How do I enter 10 to the power of -9.42 on the calculator?

No. You computed 10^1 - 9.42 which is 10 - 9.42 = .58

Instead of the minus key, which subtracts one number from another, use the change-sign key [+<>-].

[1] [0] [y^x] [9] [.] [4] [2] [+<>-] [=]

or else

[9] [.] [4] [2] [+<>-] [2ND] [10^x]
