I get 87.4...on my TI-89 I entered:

100+(-.84*15) [ENTER]

87.4 (result) - Sep 25th 2012, 07:48 PMPast45Re: How do you calculate this?

Are you getting a syntax error? You may be using the minus key instead of the negate key in front of the .84.

Use the negate key...on my TI-89 it is to the left of the enter key, and is marked with (-). You use this to negate a number, whereas the minus key is used for subtraction. Try this and let me know if this works.
