How do I have the calculator just do regular adding and subtracting. The sci function is on and we can't figure out how to turn it off.

To turn off SCI, press the MODE button, then press 9. MODE 9 is the function for NORM, which means normal use. DEG is always on, but if you want to clear SCI or FIX, MODE 9 will clear these.

to subtract put in a number then press the- button ,then put in the next number and press the - button and so on

to do a combination calculation put in a number then press the + button and so on until you come to a number that you want to subtract in which case you put in that number then press the - button and if the next number is to be added ,put the number in and press the + button

Could it be that it has adding machine logic and not calculator logic?

Let's do an experiment. 3+ 3+ 5-. Is the answer 1?

If so, it is working like an adding machine. Every number you enter is considered positive or negative and it keeps a running total.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck.

Your calculator can store values into nine variables,named A, B, C, D, E, F, X and Y. You can store a value into one of them by pressing [STO] [letter] (they are marked in red next to the corresponding buttons).

A to F are general purpose variables, X and Y are used for statistics functions and M has some special functions attached like directly adding or subtracting to/from the stored value via [M+] and [M-].

Make sure you use the (-) key in the left column above the RCL key to enter negative exponents, not the - key which subtracts.

Do get all results in decimal instead of fraction notation, press SHIFT [SETUP] 2 to select LineIO mode.

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.

it should...

it can be found by SHIFT then MODE then SCI is the one you want to choose

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.

Hi....by looking at the date you posted this question, you may have already found the answer, but just in case you haven't......the procedure for adding and subtracting on these calculators is completely opposite of a regular calculator. On a regular calculator, you would input 4 - 4 = 0. On these type of calculators, a number's positive or negative status is keyed in AFTER the number, instead of before it. Therefore, you input 4 + 4 - (notice you DO NOT input = at the end, but if you are in print mode, you will need to hit your total key, which looks like an asterisk, where the = would normally be, in order for the final value of your calculations to print on the paper tape.

Multiplication and division equations are done exactly as they are on a regular calculator....4 x 4 = 16.

Hope this helps. If you have your owners manual, it should also give you some examples of how to perform calculations with your calculator.

First keep the manual aside .

From "columns of figures ",do u mean a set of calculations.If this is the case, if your calculator has brackets{ } or [ ] ,use this function to add or subtract columns of figures.

Eg: [789+546+123+852+6547+65]=8922

OR

[789+587+6598+458] - [ 548+2587+456+584]=

8432 - 4175 = 4257

I hope this solution solves your problem.

Where is "2nd" and where is the scientific button? I literally have no idea what I am doing.
