Command Summary

Raises 10 to a power.

Command Syntax

10^(value)

Menu Location

Press [2nd] [10x] to paste 10^(.

Calculator Compatibility

TI-83/84/+/SE

Token Size

1 byte

The 10^( command raises 10 to a power. Since it's possible to just type out 1, 0, ^, and (, the reason for having a separate function isn't immediately obvious, but the command is occasionally useful.

10^( accepts numbers and lists as arguments. It also works for complex numbers.

10^(2)
     100
10^({-1,0,1})
     {0.1 1 10}

Optimization

Don't type 10^( out, use this command instead. It's three bytes smaller and usually faster as well. However, keep in mind that you might be able to use the E command instead of 10^(, for constant values.

Command Timings

The command 10^( is faster than typing out 10^( in most cases, except for small integer arguments. Even faster is E, but that only works for raising 10 to a constant power.
