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.

### I need to use the exponential function with a negative exponent on my TI-30XIIS. I hit 2nd then e^x button, but when i input a negative exponent I get an error. Help please!

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.

You need the [LOG] key.

pKa: 6.5 [EE] [+/-] 5 [LOG] [+/-]
There are two change sign: The first (either before or after the exponent 5), the last is entered after you press the log key , so as to negate (make negative if result is positive, and make positive is result is negative) the value.
