Question about Canon P170-DH Calculator
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.
