Setting the Format for Calculation Method You can select either the chain calculation method or the AOS (algebraic operating system) calculation method. The default setting for calculation method is chain (Chn). When the calculation method is set to Chn (chain), the calculator solves problems in the order that you enter them. This calculation method is used in most financial calculators. For example, when you enter 3 H 2 < 4 and the answer is 20. When the calculation method is set to AOS (the algebraic operating system), the calculator solves problems according to the standard rules of algebraic hierarchy.
