Help with negative exponent in computing variable?

I am trying to compute a variable that has a complicated equation with a negative exponent. I've attached photos of the variable I am trying to compute, what I entered in SPSS Compute Variable, and then the error message I'm getting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!



Ambassador to the humans
You have your parenthesis wrong.

You want something like: -(-13.221 + (PSS1 * 1.890) + (PSS2 * 1.002) + (PSS3 * 1.238) + (PSS4 * 2.172))

Hopefully that will bring your values into the realm of the reasonable.

Edited: Just to fill out the rest of the values and provide some additional clarity
