    100000 instead of 10E5 on Ti-89???

    Hi, guys.

    I've been using Ti-89 over 5 years so far. When the huge number such as 10^10 x 10^10 was calculated, it used to show me 1E20. Not anymore. I got 100000000000000000000... instead of 1E20. Can you guys help me out?

    I don't see any real problem with that but if you want scientific or engineering notation, use the "mode" button and change the "exponential format".
