Meaning of inable, misable and disable?

The word able can take both prefixes un and dis, so why not disable?

@Sisay Abdissa.

For example, consider the sentences.

" he is able to do his homework ".

Opposite : " he is unable to do his homework".

Incase, if disable is used, "he is disable to do his homework". As this is a wrong sentence. And also "disable" is commonly used incases Of work that cannot be done at all.

So, 'Unable' is the correct antonym of 'able'.
