1 1 Using a Scientific Calculator In this course, we will be using a scientific calculator to do all of our computations. So, in this section, we want to get use to some of the features of a scientific calculator. Although the directions in this section are specifically for a TI-30, you can adapt them to other scientific calculators. Objective 1: Using a Scientific Calculator with Whole Numbers. Simplify: Ex. 1a Ex. 1b Ex. 1c Ex. 1d Ex. 1e Ex. 1f Ex. 1g Ex. 1h Ex. 1i a) = 1455 b) = 15,276 c) = 13,845 d) = 7157 e) = 8217 f) = 14,993 g) = 47,034 h) = 785 i) = 2003 j) = 157 Ex. 1j Ex. 2a Ex. 2b

2 2 a) The order of operations says we need to multiply and divide before we add and subtract. Working the top, we get: (36 99 = 3564) = ( = 3699) = 3699 We could have done this in one step on our calculator since the scientific calculator knows the order of operations: = 3699 Now, let's work the bottom: (62 21 = 1302) = ( = 27) = 27 We could have done this in one step as well: = 27 Now, divide the answer from the top by the answer on the bottom: = 137 b) We have to multiply and divide as they appear from left to right: (18 9 = 2) = (8 2 = 4) = (4 4 = 16) = ( = 18) = 18 Again, we could have done this in one step: = 18

3 3 Objective 2: Using a Scientific Calculator with Fractions. To enter a fraction or mixed number into a scientific calculator, we will be using this key: a b /c So, to enter 2 3 on the calculator, we type 2 ab /c 3 and to enter 4 3 5, we type 4 a b /c 3 a b /c 5. Now, let's try some examples: Enter the following fractions or mixed numbers in your calculator: Ex. 3a 5 9 Ex. 3c Ex. 3b Ex. 3d Fraction or Key Strokes on How it displays Mixed Number the calculator on the calculator a) a b /c 9 5 d 9 b) a b /c 6 a b /c 9 4 _ 6 d 9 9 If you then hit =, you get 4 _ 2 d 3 which is 4 2. Thus, the calculator 3 automatically reduces to lowest terms. c) d) a b /c 5 a b /c 6 9 _ 5 d 6 19 a b /c d 14 If you then hit =, you get 1 _ 5 d 14 which is Thus, the calculator writes the answer as a mixed number. This is an easy way to convert an improper fraction to a mixed number. Write the following as a mixed number: Ex. 4a 17 3 Ex. 4b a) Typing 17 a b /c 3 =, we get 5 _ 2 d 3. So the answer is b) Typing 77 a b /c 12 =, we get 6 _ 5 d 12. So the answer is

4 4 In order to convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, we will use d/c key. Notice it is written in yellow direct above the a b /c key on the TI-30. To access this key, we will type 2nd and then hit a b /c on the TI-30. Convert the following into an improper fraction: Ex. 5a 7 5 Ex. 5b a) First enter the mixed number: 7 a b /c 5 a b /c 8 The display should be 7 _ 5 d 8. Next, hit d/c (on the TI-30, type 2nd a b /c ). The display should be 61 d 8. Thus, the answer is b) First enter the mixed number: 9 a b /c 7 a b /c 11 The display should be 9 _ 7 d 11. Next, hit d/c (on the TI-30, type 2nd a b /c ). The display should be 106 d 11. Thus, the answer is Now, we are ready to perform operations with fractions on our calculator. Simplify the following: Ex. 6a Ex. 6c Ex. 6e Ex. 6g Ex. 6b Ex. 6d Ex. 6f ( )( Ex. 6h )

5 5 a) Typing 7 a b /c 4 a b /c a b /c 13 a b /c 15 =, we get: 13 _ 14 d 45. So, our answer is b) Typing 11 a b /c a b /c 3 a b /c 15 =, we get: 10 _ 11 d 84. So, our answer is c) Typing 3 a b /c 2 a b /c a b /c 16 =, we get: 2 _ 43 d 176. So, our answer is d) Typing 15 a b /c 1 a b /c 6 8 a b /c 3 a b /c 8 =, we get: 6 _ 19 d 24. So, our answer is e) Typing 6 a b /c 2 a b /c 3 4 a b /c 1 a b /c 5 =, we get: 28. So, our answer is 28. f) Typing 17 a b /c 4 a b /c 9 15 a b /c 8 =, we get: 32 _ 17 d 24. So, our answer is g) Typing 4 a b /c 5 a b /c 8 9 a b /c 1 a b /c 3 =, we get: 111 d 224. So, our answer is h) Typing 3 a b /c 5 a b /c 13 2 a b /c 1 a b /c 2 =, we get: Objective 3: 1 _ 23 d 65. So, our answer is Using a Scientific Calculator with Decimals. It is easy to convert between fractions and decimal on a scientific calculator. We will use the Fw8D key on our calculator. On the TI-30, it is written in yellow directly above the at the bottom left. To access the key, we will need to hit 2nd. When converting a decimal into a fraction, if the denominator is larger than 999, the calculator will not display it as a fraction.

6 Convert the following: Ex. 7a into a decimal. Ex. 7b into a decimal. Ex. 7c into a fraction. Ex. 7d into a fraction. a) First, enter 5 a b /c 3 a b /c 8. The display should read 5 _ 3 d 8. Next, hit Fw8D key ( 2nd ). Our answer is b) First, enter 75 a b /c 11. The display should read 75 d 11. Next, hit Fw8D key ( 2nd ). Our answer is c) Enter then hit Fw8D key ( 2nd ). The display should read 3 _ 1 d 40. So, our answer is d) Enter then hit Fw8D key ( 2nd ). The display should read 129 d 250. So, our answer is Performing operations with decimals is done in a similar fashion to operations with whole numbers on a scientific calculator. Simplify the following (round to four decimal places if needed): Ex. 8a Ex. 8b Ex. 8c Ex. 8d Ex. 8e Ex. 8f ( Ex. 8g Ex. 8h 7 ) 0.96(7.2) a) Type: =. The result is b) Type: =. The result is c) Type: =. The result is d) Type: =. The result is Rounding, we get e) Type: 6 a b /c 5 a b /c =. The result is

7 7 f) Type: a b /c 7 =. The result is 1.8 g) Type: =. The result is h) First, work out the top: Solve the following: Ex. 9 Ex. 10 Ex. 11 Enter: =. The result is Next, work out the bottom: Enter: =. The result is 43.9 Now, divide the top by the bottom: =. The answer is The resistance of an armature while is cold is ohms. After running for several minutes, the resistance increases to ohms. Find the change in resistance of the armature. We need to subtract to find the answer: = So, the increase was ohms. How long of a bolt is needed to go through a piece of tubing 16 in. long, a washer 1 8 in. thick, and a nut 1 in. thick? 4 We need to add to find the answer: 3 a b /c 9 a b /c a b /c a b /c 4 = So, the bolt has to be 3 15 in. long A blueprint of a house shows the roof has a pitch of A contactor decides to redesign the roof so it will have double the pitch of the blue print. What is the new pitch? We need to multiply to find the answer: 2 5 a b 5 5 /c 24 =. So, the new pitch is

8 8 Ex. 12 If a 4 1 ft. long pipe is to be cut into three equal sections, how 8 long is each piece? We need to take the total length of the pipe and divide by 3: 4 a b /c 1 a b /c 8 3 = So, each section must be feet long. In future sections, we will only write down the keystrokes used on a scientific calculator when introducing new operations or functions on the calculator. It is therefore extremely important that you master how to do the basic operations on your scientific calculator. As this section has shown, it will save you a tremendous amount of time if you know how to use your scientific calculator. In this class, the TI-30 is the recommended calculator for the following reasons. 1) It is cheap. 2) It is easy to find. 3) It is easy to use. 4) It has been on the market on one form or another for at least 30 years. If you do not have a scientific calculator, then buy the TI-30. It should be priced at or below \$15. If you already have a scientific calculator that is not a TI-30, you will need to learn how to use it (i.e., read the instruction manual). Also, make sure you can enter fractions on you calculator. If you are having trouble using you calculator, please talk to your instructor before class, after class, or during his or her office hours to get help.
