First convert the negative number in to two parts one negative ( characteristic) and the decimal part( Mantissa) into positive.
By adding +3 and subtracting -3 as follows :
-2.197 + 3 - 3 = -3 + (3-2.197) = -3 + 0.803.
 
Find the actual digits using 0.803 in the anti-log table. Multiply this by 10-3 to account for the -3 characteristc.
