Press [DEL] to delete at the current cursor position Press [SHIFT] [INS] to change the cursor to an insert cursor [ ]. Replay Function Every time you perform a calculation, the replay function stores the calculation formula and its result in replay memory. Pressing the up arrow displays the formula and result of the calculation you last performed. If you continue to press the up arrow, you will scroll sequentially through your last calculations (most recent to oldest). Notes: Replay memory capacity is 128 bytes. Pressing AC will not clear the replay memory. If you want to clear the replay memory, press the ON key or reset the modes/settings: Press [SHIFT] [CLR]  [=] or [SHIFT] [CLR]  [=] . Order of Operations The calculator uses order of operations. Examples: 2 + 3 x 4 = 14 You do not need parentheses around 3 x 4. (2 + 3) x 4 = 20 Use Replay and [SHIFT] [INS] to add parentheses. Blinking [ ] is the insert cursor. - 2 2 = - 4 (- 2) 2 = 4 Display Format To change the exponential display format, press the [MODE] key 3 times. Fixed number of decimal places: Press 1: FIX You will then be prompted for the number of decimal places (0 9)....
