Hello,
You have the [X to the 3] for the cube and the [Y to the x] for any exponent: (positive, negative, or a fraction).
Hope it helps.

If you are using an HP 12c or have the button on the calculator "yx" you first enter the number you wish to raise (y) then enter then the power (x). For instance to find 230 (2 to the power of 30) you input the number 2 then hit the enter key on the calculator, then input 30 and hit the yx button.

### Whenever I type in a negative number raised to an exponent, the calculator outputs a negative number! even for a question like -2^2. How do I fix this?

You're not raising a negative number to an exponent, you're negating a number raised to an exponent.

If you want to raise -2 to the second power, you need to enter it as
( (-) 2 ) ^ 2

Without the parens, what you're getting is the equivalent of -(2^x)
