Question about Casio fx-300ES Calculator
The variables you have at your disposal in this calculator are
A, B,C,D,X,Y,M. All of them are accessed by pressing the [ALPHA] key before the key near which is written the name of the variable. You will notice that the markings of the symbols accessed with the [ALPHA] key are of the same color as that of the [ALPHA] key.
You will notice also that there are two = signs.
The one at the bottom right executes the command line. By pressing it you find the result of the expression just entered.
The other = sign is marked on the body of the calculator with the same color as the [ALPHA] key. It is located at the top left of the keyboard (excluding the row with SHIFT, MODE, the navigation buttons)
Example to enter X^2-2X-35=0 you proceed as follows.
Direct access physical keys are in [ ],
[ALPHA] (X) [X to power 2] [ - ]  [ * ][ALPHA][(X) [ - ]  [ALPHA] (=) 
Usually when you enter such an expression it is with the intention of solving it for X. By default X is taken to be the UNKNOWN. You will be prompted to enter the value assigned to any other letter symbol (Y, A,B,C,D).
So, if you want to use the Solve function, you enter the equation you are dealing with, and before pressing anything else, press [SHIFT] [CALC] and the calculator will ask you a question: "Solve for X?" , and you press the = sign at the bottom right.
Then you will be prompted for any other non-X letter. Once all non-X variables (if any) are given values, the calculator will return with the solution. You will see on the screen L-R= (should be zero if you are lucky).
