Question about Texas Instruments TI-30X Calculator
You probably want to calculate the numerical value of some mathematical expression with numbers raised to negative exponents.
Just enter the expression as you would with positive exponents Except that before entering the value of an exponent press the change sign key, marked (-), or +/- or (+/-). Do not confuse the change sign with the usual minus sign, which is usually displayed bigger then the change sign. Make sure that the (-) is displayed before the value of the exponent. Use parentheses if necessary.

SOURCE: Negative exponents?
You entered it correctly. Although you can leave out the parentheses if you want. The calculator will do exponents before it does multiplication or division just like it does multiplication and division before it does addition and subtraction. It has a built in order for hierarchy of operations. You only need to use parentheses if you want to do something that is different from this order. FYI, dividing by a negative exponent is the same as multiplying by a positive exponent. You could enter it in either way. .825/10^-3 = .825*10^3 = 825. I hope this helps you out.

I think what you did was use the minus sign instead of the negative sign, on that calculator, the two are not interchangeable. I purposely used the minus sign just now and also got a syntax error, but it looks like it works with the negative sign (-) located under the 3 button.
