Can't find the change sign or +/- key on this calculator.

Casio apparently omitted this key to facilitate its 'Natural Display' (textbook-like) entry capability. There is also no reciprocal key that returns a value with one press. You must use the x^-1 key and hit =.

Try the following:-

6+1=7. Now hit the ANS key. You can now backspace and insert the sign with the (-) key. This also works when changing from negative to positive.

A real nuisance, I agree. For many calculations I prefer my Casio fx-991d,

which must be almost 20 years old.

Calculators have two similar signs: the regular minus sign for subtraction, and the negation (change sign) sign. When applied, the latter changes the sign of the quantity to which it is applied. The minus sign - for subtraction is on the central line, the negation sign is smaller and somewhat raised above the center line.

The change sign key may be marked**(-)** , **(+/-)**, or **+/-**

The change sign key is the one marked with (-), a minus sign between parentheses. It is on the last row of keys, to the right of the dot, and below the 3 key.

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

Do not use the main MINUS sign for subtraction. Rather, use the change sign key. The key may have a + and - with two arrows, one pointing left the other right. On some calculators the key is marked with (-)

There is a key with a "+" sign, 2 arrows and a "-" sign. After you enter a number, hit this key to change it's sign. Hope this helps. Good luck!

To use the log function you press the [LOG] key in the middle of the first row of keys.

To use it.

Enter the number the log of which you want to calculate (must be positive)

Press the [LOG] key

Result is displayed.

Ex log(33.54)

33.54 [LOG] result is 1.5255

Once a logarithm has been calculated, use the [+/-] key, the change sign key located between the [.] and the [=] keys, on the bottom row of keys. You must press the change sign after you have calculated the logarithm.

Hi,

Ex: calculate -log(15.32)

Here is a picture of the change sign

Hope it helps

Ex: calculate -log(15.32)

- Calculate the log 15.32 [LOG] [=] result 1.185258765
- Then press the change sign key (-) result -1.185258765

Here is a picture of the change sign

Hope it helps

Hello Michelle,

Sorry, the answer was posted as a clarification request. Here it is again.

1. Use the key that appears on the sixth line in the picture. 10 [Y to the x] [(+/-)] 14 : the (+/-) is the change sign/ negation sign, not the regular minus sign. This key can be used to calculate the power with any exponent ( negative, positive, integer, fraction, decimal, ..) 2. The procedure above is not efficient since the calculator has a short cut to 10 to the power., the key labeled [EE}. With this key you enter 1.[EE] (+/-) 14

Hope it helps.

Hello,

To use the exponential function,**you must enter the number then press [2nd][e to the x] or [e^x] for short.**

e^(-0.1) is entered as (-)0.1 [2nd][e^x], where**(-)** is the change sign key

You will need to use extra parentheses to avoid errors.

**20 - 18*( (-)0.1 [2nd][e^x] ) [=]**

The Minus sign between 20 and 18 is the regular one. The** (-) **before the 0.1 is the change sign key **(-)** or sometimes labeled** +/-**. The asterisk is the multiplication sign.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

It is the key with a minus sign enclosed in parentheses**(-)**

Hope you find it.

This is not a solution for the change sign key. There is no change sign key on this calculator. 6+1=7 and to change sign of 7 after that entry, there is no key.
