    When do you press the exp button and what other buttons do you push?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So far pressing the exp button after pressing 3 did not work, some random number came up. The solution is in the manual for class work , but the steps on how to do it are not.

    Try this:
    (1 x 10^3) x (1 x 10^3) = ?
    = (10^3) x (10^3) = ?
    = 1000 x 1000 = ?
