    Have you tried to read manual? It says to not use "-" but (-) (button between dot and enter).
     
  4. ah tanx alot i was searching for it all day long !!! :wink:
     
  5. Did you not notice there are two minus signs? :tongue: Just kidding. It's okay, we've all done it.
     
  6. Yeah The 1st minus was the tricky one ! :biggrin:

    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.
     
  8. yeah exactly :wink:
