Calculating exponents on a normal (accounting) the calculator is very difficult. Therefore, to calculate the exponent, take the "engineering" calculator (one in which there are icons of mathematical functions).
Enter a number to which the exponent should be calculated. Then, just click on the button marked as "e" with a small letter "x" located above and to the right of the symbol "e". The device will immediately be the desired result.
If the value of the function will be very large (exponential function grows very quickly), then all digits of the result will not fit on the display of the calculator. The cheapest models of calculators in this case, simply issue an error message (looks like the letter "E" or marked "error").
Quality calculator in this case will present the result in the form type: hhhooooo. To get the result of the computation in a more familiar way, assign to number xxx yyy zeros on the right if yyy is positive. If yyy is negative, move the decimal point to yyy characters left, attributing to the left the required number of zeros.
To calculate the exponent on the computer, start the standard calculator of Windows (click "start", "Run" and type "calc"). If the calculator is started in "normal" mode, you can put it in scientific view by selecting the menu item "View" and putting in the option list of "Engineering".
Then enter on the keyboard (or virtual computer) number, the exponent of which you want to calculate. Then check in the "Inv" and click on the button that is used to calculate the value of the natural logarithm "ln". When calculating the following exhibitors don't forget to re-put a tick in the box Inv.
Please note that the special buttons for calculating the value of the exponent in standard computer calculator not. Externally, suitable for these purposes, the button is labeled exp is used in the calculator Windows a completely different purpose. Be careful.
