How can I get a negative number on my TI-30XA calculator? For example, how would I type in:

-6 x (-7)

By the way, the parentheses are not important just tell me how to get the negative numbers please.

- Press the fourth bottom grey key. It has a + and - in it with some arrows right next to a green key.

The same way you type in a negative number. Make sure you use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point key to enter a negative sign, not the - key you use for subtraction.

Make sure you use the +/- key (just to the right of the decimal point key) to enter the negative number. For example, to divide 2 by -3, press 2 / +/- 3 =

Type the number as a positive, followed by [+-] key (bottom row, left of the [=] key).

I.e. to get -42, key in:

[4] [2] [+-]

You're not calculating the square of a negative number, you're calculating the negative of a square. You need to use parenthesis to indicate the square of a negative number.

You're calculating -(3^2), not (-3)^2.

To calculate the latter: ( (-) 3 ) x^2 =

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.

Use the (-) key for negative numbers (not just exponents) instead of the - key. The - is to subtract one value from another, (-) is to input a negative value.

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

On the bottom of the calculator near the zero and the enter key it has the symbol

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.
