the same format as a formula is written) is enabled. Also
appears when LineO is selected as the display format.


Calculation history memory data is available and can be
replayed, or there is more data above/below the current
Appears when “Manual” is selected for the “Simp” setting
on the setup menu, and indicates that the fraction result of
a calculation can be simplified.

Important: For some type of calculation that takes a long time to execute,
the display may show only the above indicators (without any value) while it
performs the calculation internally.

Configuring the Calculator Setup
Press s to display the setup menu. Press the number key for the item
you want to configure. To close the setup menu without changing any setting,
press A or s.
Underlined ( ___ ) settings are initial defaults.
1MathO 2LineO Specifies the display format.
MathO displays input and calculation results using
the same format as they are written on paper.

LineO displays input the same way as MathO, but
calculation results are displayed in decimal



Note: In this manual, the K symbol next to a sample operation indicates
MathO, while the L symbol indicates LineO.


3Fix 4Norm Specifies the number of digits for display of a calculation
Fix: The value you specify (from 0 to 9) controls the number of decimal
places for displayed calculation results. Calculation results are rounded off
to the specified digit before being displayed.
Example: L 100 ÷ 7 = 14.286 (Fix 3)
14.29 (Fix 2)
Norm: Selecting one of the two available settings (Norm 1, Norm 2)
determines the range in which results will be displayed in non-exponential
format. Outside the specified range, results are displayed using exponential
Norm 1: 10–2  |x|, |x|  1010 Norm 2: 10–9  |x|, |x|  1010
Example: L 1 ÷ 200 = 5 × 10–3 (Norm 1)
0.005 (Norm 2)
5ab/c 6 d/c Specifies either mixed fraction (ab/c) or improper fraction
(d/c) for display of fractions in calculation results.
7Simp 1Auto ; 2Manual Specifies automatic or manual simplification
of fractions. When manual is specified, fraction calculation results are always
displayed as improper fractions, even if the fraction display format setting is
Even if the result of a calculation can be displayed as a fraction when
automatic simplification is used, performing the same calculation with manual
simplification may produce a non-fraction (decimal) result.
Example: 2 2 × 5 1
k 2 e 2 c 3 e*k 5 e 1 c 8 = ­ 
k 2 e 2 c 3 e*k 5 e 1 c 8 =
for details.

Initializing Calculator Settings
Perform the following procedure to initialize the calculator, which returns all
settings, including setup menu settings, to their initial defaults.

Inputting Expressions and Values
Basic Input Rules
Calculations can be input in the same form as they are written. When you
press = the priority sequence of the input calculation will be evaluated
automatically and the result will appear on the display.


4 × (30 + 10 × 3) = 240
4 *( 30 + 10 * 3 )=




*1 A multiplication symbol (×) can be omitted when it occurs immediately
before an opening parenthesis, immediately before Rnd or RanInt# function
that includes parentheses, immediately before the Ran# (random number)
function, or immediately before independent memory (M) or π.
*2 The closing parenthesis immediately before the = operation can be
Input example omitting **1 and )*2 operations in the above
4 ( 30 + 10 * 3 =

Note: • If the calculation becomes longer than the screen width during
input, the screen will scroll automatically to the right and the ] indicator will
appear on the display. When this happens, you can scroll back to the left
by using d and e to move the cursor. • Pressing e while the cursor
is at the end of the input calculation will cause it to jump to the beginning,
while pressing d while the cursor is at the beginning will cause it to jump
to the end. • You can input up to 99 bytes for a calculation. Each numeral,
symbol, or function normally uses one byte. Some functions require three
to 13 bytes. • The cursor will change shape to k when there are 10 bytes
or less of allowed input remaining. If this happens, end calculation input
and then press =.

Calculation Priority Sequence
The priority sequence of input calculations is evaluated in accordance with the
rules below. When the priority of two expressions is the same, the calculation
is performed from left to right.

Parenthetical expressions


Function with parentheses: Rnd(, RanInt#(


Functions that come after the input value (x2, x–1, °’ ”, %), powers
(x^), square root ())




Negative sign (–)
Note: When squaring a negative value (such as –2), the value
being squared must be enclosed in parentheses ((- 2 )w
=). Since x2 has a higher priority than the negative sign,
inputting - 2 w= would result in the squaring of 2 and then
appending a negative sign to the result. Always keep the priority
sequence in mind, and enclose negative values in parentheses
when required.


Multiplication where the multiplication sign is omitted


Multiplication (×), division (÷), remainder calculations (÷R)


Addition, subtraction (+, –)


Inputting a Calculation Formula
Your calculator lets you input calculator formulas using the same format as
they appear in your textbook (natural format). Fractions and special functions
(x2, x^, ), x−1, 10^) are also displayed in a natural format.


! 63 =


! 63 =

Important: • Certain types of expressions can cause the height of a
calculation formula to be greater than one display line. The maximum
allowable height of a calculation formula is two display screens (31 dots × 2).
Further input will become impossible if the height of the calculation you are
inputting exceeds the allowable limit. • Nesting of functions and parentheses
is allowed. Further input will become impossible if you nest too many functions
and/or parentheses. If this happens, divide the calculation into multiple parts
and calculate each part separately.
Note: When you press = and obtain a calculation result, part of the
expression you input may be cut off. If you need to view the entire input
expression again, press A and then use d and e to scroll the input

Using Values and Expressions as Arguments
A value or an expression that you have already input can be used as the
argument of a function. After you have input
, for example, you can make
7 .
it the argument of ', resulting in


To input 1 + 7 and then change it to 1 +






As shown above, the value or expression to the right of the cursor after
1Y(INS) are pressed becomes the argument of the function that is
specified next. The range encompassed as the argument is everything up
to the first open parenthesis to the right, if there is one, or everything up to
the first function to the right ('
2, 102, etc.)
This capability can be used with the following functions: ', A, !, 6.


Correcting and Clearing an Expression
To delete a single character or function: Move the cursor so it is directly to
the right of the character or function you want to delete, and then press Y.
To insert a character or function into a calculation: Use d and e to
move the cursor to the location where you want to insert the character or
function and then input it.
To clear all of the calculation you are inputting: Press A.

Toggling Calculation Results
Each press of F will toggle the currently displayed calculation result between
its fraction form and decimal form, its ' form and decimal form, or its π
form and decimal form.
π ÷ 6 = 1 π = 0.5235987756

6 + 2'

F 5.913591358

Important: • Depending on the type of calculation result that is on the display
when you press the F key, the conversion process may take some time to
perform. • With certain calculation results, pressing the F key will not convert
the displayed value. • You cannot switch from decimal form to mixed fraction
form if the total number of digits used in the mixed fraction (including integer,
numerator, denominator, and separator symbols) is greater than 10.
Note: With MathO, pressing 1= instead of = after inputting a calculation
will display the calculation result in decimal form. Pressing F after that will
switch to the fraction form or π form of the calculation result. The ' form of
the result will not appear in this case.

2500 + 2500 * 15 &=


Discount 3500 by 25%. (2625)
3500 - 3500 * 25 &=


Percent Conversion
Calculation results can be converted to a percent. While a calculation
result is displayed, press !&('%). Percent display can be up to 10
digits long. Pressing !&('%) again returns the calculation result to its
original display format.
1 + 2 = 3 = 300%

1 ÷ 3 = 0.33 = 33.33% (Fix 2)

1 + 2 =!&('%)


1 / 3 =!&('%)

! 2 =!&('%)


1°2´3˝ = 103.4166667%
1 e 2 e 3 e=!&('%)


• When the number of display digits is specified by Fix, the value is converted
to a percent and then adjusted to the specified number of digits. The number
of display digits setting is not applied to the value stored in Ans memory.
• When MathO is selected as the display format and the calculation result is
a fraction, root ('), or pi (π), the result is converted to a decimal fraction
and then to a percent. Pressing !&('%) again displays the decimal
fraction value.
• When the calculation result is a sexagesimal value (degrees, minutes,
seconds), it is converted to a decimal value and then to a percent.
• Percent conversion cannot be performed on the result of a remainder
calculation (÷R).

Degree, Minute, Second (Sexagesimal) Calculations
Performing an addition or subtraction operation between sexagesimal values,
or a multiplication or division operation between a sexagesimal value and a
decimal value will cause the result to be displayed as a sexagesimal value.
You also can convert between sexagesimal and decimal. The following


is the input format for a sexagesimal value: {degrees} $ {minutes} $
{seconds} $.
Note: You must always input something for the degrees and minutes, even
if they are zero.
2°20´30˝ + 39´30˝ = 3°00´00˝

Calculation History
The calculator remembers up to approximately 200 bytes of data for the
newest calculation. You can scroll through calculation history contents
using f and c.
(Scrolls back.) f
(Scrolls back again.) f



Note: Calculation history data is all cleared whenever you press O,
when you change the display format, or whenever you perform any reset

While a calculation result is on the display, you can press d or e to edit
the expression you used for the previous calculation.
4 × 3 + 2.5 = 14.5 L
4 * 3 + 2.5 =
4 × 3 − 7.1 = 4.9

789 – 579 = 210

123 + 456 =

789 -G=

Independent Memory (M)
You can add calculation results to or subtract results from independent
memory. The “M” appears on the display when there is any value other than
zero stored in independent memory.




10 * 5 l


To subtract the result of 10 + 5 from M
(Continuing) 10 + 5 m




To clear the contents of M
To assign the result of 2 + 8 to M
To add the result of 10 × 5 to M


To recall the contents of M


Note: You also can call M and use it in a calculation you are inputting.

Clearing the Contents of All Memories
Ans memory and independent memory contents are retained even if you
press A, or turn off the calculator. Perform the following procedure when
you want to clear the contents of all memories.

Remainder Calculations
You can use the ÷R function in order to obtain the quotient and remainder
in a division calculation.
To calculate the quotient and remainder of 5 ÷ 2

Quotient Remainder

Note: • Only the quotient value of a ÷R calculation is stored in Ans memory.
• Assigning a remainder calculation result to independent memory (M) will
cause only the quotient value to be assigned. For example, assigning the
result of the remainder calculation 5÷R2 (5 u 2 S) will result in 2 being
assigned to M. Adding a remainder calculation result to or subtracting result
from M will add or subtract only the quotient value. • If a ÷R calculation is part
of a multi-step calculation, only the quotient is passed on to the next operation.
(Example: 10 + 17 u 6 = → 10 + 2) • Operation of the F, and e keys
is disabled while a remainder division result is on the display.


Cases when Remainder Division becomes
Non-remainder Division
If either of the following conditions exists when you perform a remainder
division operation, the calculation will be treated as normal (non-remainder)
• When either the dividend or the divisor is a very large value
Example: 20000000000 u 17 =
→ Calculated as: 20000000000 ÷ 17
• When the quotient is not a positive integer, or if the remainder is not a
positive integer or positive fractional value
Example: - 5 u 2 = → Calculated as: –5 ÷ 2

Function Calculations
For actual operations using each function, see the “Examples” section
following the list below.
π : π is displayed as 3.141592654, but π = 3.14159265358980 is used for
internal calculations. See 1 .

x2, x^, ), x−1 : Powers, square root, and reciprocals. See


Note: The following functions cannot be input in consecutive sequence: x2,
x^, x−1. If you input 2ww, for example, the final w will be ignored. To
input 22 , input 2w, press the d key, and then press w.
Ran# : Generates a 3-digit pseudo random number that is less than 1. The
result is displayed as a fraction when MathO is selected. See 4 .
RanInt# : For input of the function of the form RanInt#(a, b), which generates
a random integer within the range of a to b. See 5 .
Rnd : The argument of this function is made a decimal value and then
rounded in accordance with the current number of display digits setting
(Norm or Fix). With Norm 1 or Norm 2, the argument is rounded off to 10
digits. With Fix, the argument is rounded off to the specified digit. When Fix
3 is the display digits setting, for example, the result of 10 ÷ 3 is displayed
as 3.333, while the calculator maintains a value of 3.33333333333333 (15
digits) internally for calculation. In the case of Rnd(10÷3) = 3.333 (with Fix
3), both the displayed value and the calculator’s internal value become
3.333. Because of this a series of calculations will produce different results
depending on whether Rnd is used (Rnd(10÷3) × 3 = 9.999) or not used (10
÷ 3 × 3 = 10.000). See 6 .
Simp : This function simplifies a fraction using the least divisor. You also
can specify the divisor, if you want. An error is displayed if a fraction cannot
be reduced.
Note : This function is disabled when “Auto” is selected for the Simp setting
on the setup menu. See 7 .
Note: Using functions can slow down a calculation, which may delay display
of the result. Do not perform any subsequent operation while waiting for the
calculation result to appear. To interrupt an ongoing calculation before its
result appears, press A.

• Precision is basically the same as that described under “Calculation Range
and Precision”, above.
• xy type function requires consecutive internal calculation, which can cause
accumulation of errors that occur with each calculation.
• Error is cumulative and tends to be large in the vicinity of a function’s singular
point and inflection point.
• The range for calculation results that can be displayed in π form is |x| 
106. Note, however, that internal calculation error can make it impossible
to display some calculation results in π form. It also can cause calculation
results that should be in decimal form to appear in π form.

The calculator will display an error message whenever an error occurs for
any reason during a calculation. There are two ways to exit an error message
display: Pressing d or e to display the location of the error, or pressing
A to clear the message and calculation.

Displaying the Location of an Error
While an error message is displayed, press d or e to return to the
calculation screen. The cursor will be positioned at the location where
the error occurred, ready for input. Make the necessary corrections to the
calculation and execute it again.
When you input 14 ÷ 0 × 2 = by mistake instead of 14 ÷10 × 2 =
14 / 0 * 2 =


e (or d)


Clearing the Error Message
While an error message is displayed, press A to return to the calculation
screen. Note that this also clears the calculation that contained the error.


Error Messages
Cause: • The intermediate or final result of the calculation you are performing
exceeds the allowable calculation range. • Your input exceeds the allowable
input range (particularly when using functions). • The calculation you are
performing contains an illegal mathematical operation (such as division
by zero).
Action: • Check the input values, reduce the number of digits, and try again.
• When using independent memory as the argument of a function, make sure
that the memory value is within the allowable range for the function.
Cause: The calculation you are performing has caused the capacity of the
numeric stack or the command stack to be exceeded.
Action: • Simplify the calculation expression so it does not exceed the
capacity of the stack. • Try splitting the calculation into two or more parts.
Syntax ERROR
Cause: There is a problem with the format of the calculation you are
Action: Make necessary corrections.
Argument ERROR
Cause: A non-integer argument was input for the random number function
(RanInt#). Attempting to simplify a non-fraction value ('Simp).
Action: Input only integers for the argument (RanInt#). Input only fractions
for the argument ('Simp).
Can’t Simplify
Cause: Attempting to simplify a fraction using a divisor that cannot be
Action: Input a divisor that can be simplified.

Before Assuming Malfunction of the
Perform the following steps whenever an error occurs during a calculation
or when calculation results are not what you expected. If one step does not
correct the problem, move on to the next step.
Note that you should make separate copies of important data before
performing these steps.
1. Check the calculation expression to make sure that it does not contain any
2. If the above steps do not correct your problem, press the O key. This will
cause the calculator to perform a routine that checks whether calculation
functions are operating correctly. If the calculator discovers any abnormality,
it automatically clears memory contents. For details about initialized
settings, see “Configuring the Calculator Setup”.
3. Initialize all settings by performing the following operation: r1(Setup)


Replacing the Battery
A low battery is indicated by a dim display, even if contrast is adjusted, or by
