## Re: Formula Help

Hello,

by: Y=(6195.5 X 522.435) X -0.183 do you mean:

(6195.5 * 522.435)  * -0.183

where * is the multiplicator operator?

in this case, do

6195.5 ENTER 522.435 * 0.183 CHS *

The -0.183 is in superscript as in the -0.183 power. That'said the input I can'tell figure out. Thanks!!
