The - key is for subtraction, an operation that needs two numbers. If you press - as the first key on a line, the calculator assumes you want to subtract something from the previous answer, Ans.

If you want to enter a negative number, use the (-) key on the bottom row of the keyboard, just to the left of the Enter key.

I doubt that it has a glitch. Although possible, it is not very probable. Try to use the calculator correctly.

Follow the algebraic logic.

If you did not input any value the answer memory contains the value 0.

When you press (+/-) followed by [=] it takes the value in answer memory and negates it, thus giving you (-0).

Adopt a consistent way of inputting numbers, namely always enter the negation sign before the number that is negated. The calculator will enclose the negated number between parentheses, which prevents may errors. Too bad this feature has not been kept in more recent calculators by Sharp.

Minus and change-sign are two completely different things. Minus is used to subtract one number from another. When you press minus when the input line is empty, your telling the calculator to subtract. The only way it can subtract the number you're about to put in is to subtract it from something else, and that something else is the previous answer, hence the "Ans."

If you want to input a negative number, use the change-sign key. If you want to subtract one number from another number, use the minus key.

Try pressing the plus key when the input line is empty. You'll get Ans+ in this case as well, The same with multiply and divide, among others, and for the same reason.

Make sure you use the +/- key (just to the right of the decimal point) to input negative numbers.

Press +/- 4 . 5 * +/- 1 . 1 =

Be sure to use the (-) negative key and not the - minus key.

Use the (-) key for negative numbers (not just exponents) instead of the - key. The - is to subtract one value from another, (-) is to input a negative value.

Use the EE (enter exponent) key (2nd-shift of the key just above the 7) to enter the exponent. Use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point to enter a negative number.

The - key subtracts one number from another. The (-) key enters a negative number.

Use the log function (common logarithm). See screen capture for markings on key.

To evaluate the negative of a logarithm

Enter the number (argument) of the logarithm

Press the = key to have it calculated.

While result is still displayed, press the sign change key or (+/-).

Beware that -log(number) is not necessarily a negative value.

Another way to calculate -log is to use the relation

log(1/a)=-log(a) .
