    e is called the common base. it's defined as: \[\lim _{x->\infty} (1 +1/x)^{x}\]

    from I remember from my high school maths about 3yrs , it is defined in terms of the difference quotient of a^x , where a is any real , then they take a limit

    press the e^(x) button, and you have to put 1 , so you get e^1 =e
