Re: adding and subtracting lengths of measurements
You can use the units menu (2nd > 3) to place a unit after some number you want to qualify as being an unit, or you can just type them in like 5_ft + 6_in. Note that you need to add on each part if you are doing mixed measurements; there is no _ft_in combination. So just add each manually - in your case you would do (5_ft + 6_in) - (2_ft + 8_in)

It probably uses adding machine logic. Try the following example.
You should get 3, -1, and 4 on the screen, the running total. The tape should show the +3, -4, +5, and finally 4, the numbers that you entered and the total. Think of each entry as adding/subtracting integers on a number line rather than 3+4-5;)
SUM means adding not subtracting. so if you were wanting to add the total (the sum) of the amounts of the hundreds and the tens would be 170 plus 130 which would be 300 but the remainder from subtracting 130 from 170 would be 40. That would leave the single units 5 minus 4 of which the remainder is 1. So, the remainder from subtracting 134 from 175 is the reminder of subtracting the one hundred from the one hundred which is zero added to the remainder of subtracting the tens (70 minus 30) which is the remainder of 40 plus the remainder of subtracting the units of 5 minus 4 which is 1. So you need to add the 0 and the 40 and 1 which is the remaining sum of 41.
Remember that the SHARP calculator does not solve algebra.
But some tips for adding and subtracting monomials include:
Group all the terms that are like terms (they have the same variables and exponents. Make sure that you move them with the sign in front of them (dont lose your minuses).
Add or subtract just the numbers in front of the terms and leave the variables exactly as they are when you write down the answer.
If your calculator is more of an adding machine it works a little bit differently than a calculator. For an example: 10 + 5 - 2 on your machine do the addition of 10 + 5, then to subtract the 2 press 2 then the minus sign to get the total of 13. I hope this is helpful.
use the + key after each number to add the total will appear on screen. When all numbers have been added, enter number to subtract and then press - key. The subtracted number will appear in read on the paper (if two color). and then press the star key to get total.
When you want to complete a problem on an adding machine, such as "7 - 3," you would not key in "7," then the subtraction sign, then "3" and then an equal sign. If you do, then you will get an answer of "-4," and you know that is not the correct answer. Again, you have to think like an accountant when you are working with your adding machine. To figure this subtraction problem on an adding machine, you would need to key in "7," the addition sign, "3" and then the subtraction sign; you would get the answer of 4. You are actually working the problem as "7 + (-3)." This would be true on most modern day machines. In order to subtract, you have to add the negative number.
With an adding machine, which is what this is, you enter the number followed by the + or -. If you wanted to add 10+20, you would enter 10 then + then 20 then +. This would show your answer. If you are using the printer and you wish to see the final answer on the paper, hit the * key and your answer will print.
If you are subtracting, let's say 100-40, you would enter 100 then + then 40 then - then *. Adding machines expect you to enter long strings of numbers to total. You may have both positive and negative numbers. So, you always enter the number first followed by either positive + or negative -.
You might have 100 + 25 - 37 - 1 + 50. For that enter: 100+25+37-1-50+ then *
Different than a calculator but the same for all "adding machines". This machine should really be called an adding machine since that is the kind of input it is looking for.
