If I try to do 1+ 10^3.9, for example, I just get 'syntax error'. Argh!
Help?

If you are getting a syntax error, more than likely you are entering the commands to perform 1+10^3.9 incorrectly.
Tell us exactly which keystrokes you are pressing one at a time. Edit: Or you can try to figure out what you are doing wrong in the manual. Glancing at it, it looks like pages E13 and E14 explain how to perform exponents on your calculator. http://www.instructionsmanuals.com/u...FX83ESen.pdf

I figured out what I was doing wrong in my old calculator, I could just press, for example [10^x][5], but on this new calculator, you need to press [shift][log].
Still not sure what the difference is, but it does what I need it to do, so I'm happy now. Thanks for your help :)
