Dear PF,

Your last help to my tech support was very helpful and i thank you all for it :). however since i am new to my TI-Titanum, i unfortunalty have another stupid question. i was using the "slove(" function. and i inserted into the home screen (exactly what i typed in):

solve((-1/2)^x=1/4,X)

i mean.... the answer should be 2 right?
somehow i got a "false" answer
i was just wondering if it is my calculators problem or if if everyones calcucators.

Perhaps you should try == rather = and see what you get.
