Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
Whenever I square a negative number its gives me a negative answer. For example -2 squared equals a positve 4, but it gives me -4. Is there a way to change the settings so that I will receive accurate answers to squared negatives?
Your calculator will square a number before it applies the negative sign, so what you're actually doing is squaring 2, then applying the - sign to your answer. You need to put the -2 in parenthesis, so (-2)^2. That will give you 4. Hope this helps!
