Hi. I'm doing maths and I'm stuck.

It's standard form using a calculator. I've got a CASIO fx-83GT PLUS (NATURAL-U.P.A.M) calculator if that's how you say it.

Here's one question. I'm literally so stuck I have no idea what I don't understand.

(also the tiny numbers, exponents, can't be put in this question so i'll just put it in a bracket so you know it's an exponent)

6.2 x 10(7) x 1.4 x 10(-2) =
How do I work this out? Here's how they said it's put in the calculator -

6.2 EXP 7 x 1.4 EXP -2

I can't find the "EXP" button? I literally can't get the correct answer as it's not going into the calculator properly. Am I just stupid or??

So basically I can't work this calculator haha HELP
Also sorry if this is a mess
