Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

Its on there its at the very botton of your calculate by the enter key between enver and the decimal

Posted on Sep 03, 2008

The minus is always centered while the negative is always at the top.

If you're in algebraic mode, press 1 - 2

You should see the centered minus sign between the one and the two. Now press ENTER, and you should see the top negative preceding a one.

The two are two different things. The first indicates subtracting one number from another. The second indicates a negative quantity.

Are you sure the minus is at the top? Or was the negative centered?

Make sure you use the +/- key (located just to the right of the decimal point key) to enter a negative number, not the - key (to the right of the + key, used to subtract one value from another).

For example, press +/- 4 / +/- 3 = to divide -4 by -3 .

For example, press +/- 4 / +/- 3 = to divide -4 by -3 .

Make sure you use the (-) key to enter negative values, not the - key. For example, to calculate the common antilog of -5, press

SHIFT log (-) 5 =

To calculate the natural antilog of -5, press

SHIFT ln (-) 5 =

SHIFT log (-) 5 =

Use the EE key (just above the 7 key) to enter an exponent. For a negative exponent, use the +- key (just to the right of the decimal point key) to enter the negative sign.

For example, to enter 1.2 x 10^-21, press 1 . 2 EE +- 2 1

To switch the display mode to scientific notation, press 2nd [SCI] (the 5 key).

If your measurement are negative use parentheses such as, (-4) degrees Fahrenheit converted to Celsius should = -20. Where as 4 degrees Fahrenheit equals -15.5 degrees Celsius. the parentheses are not needed if your measurement is positive.

Use the log function (common logarithm). See screen capture for markings
on key.

To evaluate the negative of a logarithm

Enter the number (argument) of the logarithm

Press the = key to have it calculated.

While result is still displayed, press the sign change key or (+/-).

Beware that -log(number) is not necessarily a negative value.

Another way to calculate -log is to use the relation

log(1/a)=-log(a) .

Your example

3 [EXP] [(] [+/-] 2 [) ] [LOG][=] [+/-]

[EXP] is the key to enter exponent of a power of 10 :It is a shortcut, so no 10 is entered. Respect the key sequence above.

[ (] left parenthesis to prevent ambiguity due to the negaticve exponent. Just a security.

[)] is the enclosing right parenthesis

[+/-] is the Sign Change key

Enter the number, then press the LOG button. Once result is displyed press the change sign key. If result is positive, it will become negative. If result is negative it will become positive. The Change sign key is the one with + -, located between the . and the = on the bottom row of keys.

You can download the guidebook for this calculator from TI here.

From page 16:

To enter a number in scientific notation:

1) Enter up to 10 digits for the base (mantissa). If negative, press the +/- key. (The key has two curvy arrows between the + and - but I can't do that on my keyboard.)

2) Press the EE key.

3) Enter a 1 or 2-digit exponent. If negative, press +/- either before or after entering exponent.

They give the example 1.2345 +/- EE +/- 65 which would display -1.2345 -65.
