Question about Texas Instruments TI-85 Calculator
My TI-85 must be in some sort of mode that allows it to do this: when I square a negative number, I get a negative answer. I also get a negative answer with any exponent (including all even exponents). Please help, I want it to properly show me positive answers to a negative number to an even exponent. Thanks!
You must put all negative numbers in Parenthesis otherwise your calculator is not squaring the negative .
