8) Power: dots 4-5-7 9) Decimal point: dots 4-6 10) Left parenthesis: dots 1-2-3-5-6 11) Right parenthesis: dots 2-3-4-5-6 Note: To input a negative number, surround the negative number with parentheses. For example, when you type -2, press dots 1-2-3-5-6, dots 3- 6, dots 1-2 and dots 2-3-4-5-6. Immediately after you input percent (%) sign in the calculator, the result is displayed according to the percent value by dividing the original number by the number before the percent(%) sign. For example, If you want to calculate 90+20%, as soon as the percent (%) sign is entered, the percent value is immediately calculated, and 18, is displayed as twenty percent of 90 is 18. Finally, the result of the calculation is 108. However, when you place a multiplication sign before percent sign, for example, 20*40%, as soon as you enter the percent (%) sign, 0.4 is immediately displayed, as 40% equals 0.4. The final result of the entire calculation is 9 multiplying 20 by 0.4. 5.1.2 Clear All If you wish, you can delete all previously saved calculations and initialize the calculator. To do this, open the menu by pressing "Space-m (dots 1-3- 4)" or press "Alt". Then, use "Space-1" or "Space-4" to move to "Clear all", and press "Enter". Or you can activate this function by pressing “Ctrl-E (dots 1-5) directly from within in the calculation line. 5.1.3 Save file The “Save file” function allows you to save the current calculations and results to a file for future use.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
