    Have you tried to read manual? It says to not use "-" but (-) (button between dot and enter).

    Did you not notice there are two minus signs? :tongue: Just kidding. It's okay, we've all done it.

    I don't have a TI-89, but my guess is that one of the - keys is for subtraction, and the other is to change the sign of the operand.
