It seems to have two algorithms here.This is why the fx5000F have two different functions from the keyboard: One for real and other for integer values. In fact there are more key functions available that could be considered redundant as well, if you consider the 10^x or the x^2 keys. This is not exclusive of this calculator model. Manufacturers like to include direct, some times redundant, access to functions for what they believed were the most popular at the time. As explained in the link from Wikipedia, x^n is a simple operation of multiplying x n times and can be done with a very simple algorithm, saving power and be faster than other methods.
