What is the difference between putting *2nd* and *comma* to get E and putting the number 10 on a calculator? I know that when getting 10 to a power, the calculator displays it as E^power, with E being equivalent to 10. But, why would it make a difference when inputting something with 10 as the base raised to a power?
Yeah E is the same thing as 10^_ on a calculator. One thing about 10^ that's different than E is that you may need to add parenthesis when you use 10^ if the exponent is in the denominator so the calculator will divide as you intend.
