Most calculators don't have enough digits to display this, so they show the result in scientific notation.

If you enter a number into a calculator nad then press the log x key what does the calculator display?

It displays the power to which '10' would have to be raised in order to get the number you entered. That's the definition of the 'logarithm' or 'log' of a number. Examples: Enter 100. Hit 'log x'. Display '2', because 102 = 100. Enter 1000. Hit 'log x'. Display '3', because 103 = 1000. Enter 2. Hit 'log x'. Display '0.30103', because 100.30103 = 2. Enter 0.1. Hit 'log x'. Display ' -1 ', because 10-1= (1/101) = 0.1

How do you calculate in your calculator 1.5 raised to the fifth power?

Ideally, you would use the power key. It is usually labelled as xy or as yx. Typically, you would press: 1.5 (power) 5 (equal). If you don't have a scientific calculator, you can also calculate: 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 Please note that this latter method doesn't work for fractional powers; if you need those, you certainly need a scientific calculator. The calculator included in Windows has an option to change to a scientific calculator.
