Hello,
Use the Y to the x key [Y^x]. To enter the negative exponent use the change sign key [+/-] not the regular minus - sign.
Hope it helps.

I am trying to figure out how to enter negative logs into the TI-30XA. I have a chemistry exam on Tuesday and we need to be able to do problems with the negative log and I can't seem to find any...

How do i divide by powers of 10 in my TI-30XA calculator?

The same way you would divide by any other number. Just use the EE key (just above the 7) to enter the exponent. If the exponent is negative, use the +<>- key (just to the left of the =) to enter the negative sign.

Decimals in the exponents for TI-30Xa

Hi,
You have a key labeled [Y to the x], use it for all the powers or roots that do not have a dedicated key or key sequence. Let the key be [^]

Ex: 13.675 to the power 1.33 is entered as 13.675 [^] (1.33) [=].
The result is 32.41778634
Ex: (-64)[^](2/3) [=] gives 16 as result. The (-) is the change sign key
Ex: (2.87655)^(-6.778) is entered as 2.87655 [^] ( (-) 6.778 ) [=] 0.0007758
The (-) is the change sign (or the negative of), not the regular minus. When you have a negative exponent or a complicated exponent, it is safer to enclose the whole exponent inside parentheses.

Hope it helps.
