### I cant figure out how to get the square root of a negative number

The square root of a negative number is an imaginary number, and the TI-30XA does not deal with imaginary numbers.

However, the square root of -x is equal to i times the square root of x. So, to calculate the square root of -4, for example, press 4 square_root = and read 2. Thus the square root of -4 is 2i.

### What button do I use to find negative log on my TI-83 calculator...also how do I put in a negative exponent?? i.e 1*10 to the negative 6th .....

You compute the negative of a logarithm the same way you compute the negative of anything else. However, do you really mean the antilog (inverse logarithm)? Use 2ND [e^x] for the natural antilog, 2ND [10^x] for the common antilog.

For negative exponents, as well as negative anything, use the (-) key next to the decimal point. For your example, 1 EE (-) 6

### Scientific notation

You have to use the EE button right next to the parenthesis and the sigma plus button. So 1.7 EE and then your exponenet. If it is a negative exponent you need to hit the negative button before you type in the number.
