Hi John,

I just wanted to say a HUGE THANKYOU to you and for your free lectures and course notes. After sitting this exam 4 times, I was at my wits end, so decided to take a different approach to learning. Many people told me not to have the faith in open tuition as it is free, but here I am on results day with a huge smile on my face because I have passed.

I can now move on to my professional level exams and will be one step closer to being qualified!!!

THANKYOU SO SO MUCH.

Sam

I am stuck on how to put it in the calculator.

I first put in 3/4 x 5 x 2,000 squared, divided by 0.00014.

On my scientific calculator this gives me 1.071428571 x 10 to the power of 11. How do I then go from here to putting in the cubed root and getting an answer of $4,750?

Everytime I push the cubed root button it throws up an error.

Please help

John Moffat says

Sorry, but I cannot help because different calculators work in different ways.

Have you looked at the instruction book for the calculator?

sam says

Yes, but no help. My main issue is how to get from 1.0714 to the power of 11 to the cubed root. Do I multiply it by cubed root or just put 1.0714 the push thecubed root button? It has been years since I was at school so my knowledge on these calculations is very scratchy.

John Moffat says

You certainly don’t multiply by the cubed root.

On my calculator you simply press the cubed root button.
