Is there a way that I can set my TI-89 up so that when it shows large numbers, there are commas separating the "000"?

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry, I don't think so. Maybe you can try using scientific notation to make large numbers easier to read.

Yes you can. Try downloading an app called "Omnicalc".

One of settings is exactly what you are looking for.

That looks like a bulky program--it has so many garbage functions! Natively, (i.e. no apps used) there is no way, and I don't see how commas are better anyhow. You'd just have to take them out if you use them in calculations. But if you want to install that, sure.

Well, when dealing with large numbers, short of counting the zeros, I personally can't tell what the number is.

Math never was my strong point.

I know what you mean..

I haven't found a way to add comma's yet but what you can do is approx.

(diamond key) -> enter

This gives a value to the 10th power.
i.e. 18200000 -> 1.82e^7

at least this way you don't have to count the zero's
