# I do not have the manual. If I want to add or subtract do I put the total amount in and than hit the plus or minus key ? i.e., \$128,000 -10000. do I hit the minus before the amount or after? -1500. do I put in the 1500 than press minus or do I press the - before the number? I need to add & subtract & sometimes multiply & sometimes multiply. When I ran some numbers & rechecked several times I was getting a incorrect total. The total must be right as it is for tax purposes.

### Luke wants to find the difference 175 - 134. He has subtracted the hundreds and tens so far. What is the sum of the two numbers he has subtracted? How much does he still need to subtract?

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.

Minus and change-sign are two completely different things. Minus is used to subtract one number from another. When you press minus when the input line is empty, your telling the calculator to subtract. The only way it can subtract the number you're about to put in is to subtract it from something else, and that something else is the previous answer, hence the "Ans."

If you want to input a negative number, use the change-sign key. If you want to subtract one number from another number, use the minus key.

Try pressing the plus key when the input line is empty. You'll get Ans+ in this case as well, The same with multiply and divide, among others, and for the same reason.

### My calculator will add, but after my total and then I want to subtract, it subtracts by the number I added.

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.

### I am unable to subtract

The way to do math on this calculator is a bit different than on others. To start off, when doing subtraction, you must press the + key. This tells the calculator that you are working with a positive number.

Say you have \$588.43 in you check book but you spent \$136.92. The buttons you press on the calculator will be as follows:

588.43 + 136.92 -

The positive total of 451.51 will be on your screen. If you are using the print function as a way of keeping track, press # to print the on screen total.

Just remember, enter your first number and hit +. After this, each number that you are subtracting will have a - behind it.

Enter 38 press plus key.
Enter 10, press minus key.
Press the equal sign. You will have the result.

### How do I get this calculator to substract

Big calculators work a little different than handheld calculators. Like the above commentor explained, if you have a basic "whats 100 minus 20?" You have to entered as 100 + 20 -- And when you hit the minus button at the end, it will give you the total. 100 is the positive number, and the 20 is the negative number that your subtracting. Also you can hit 20 -- 100 + and get the same total because you entering 20 as the negative and 100 as the positive, just in reverse.

### Electricity bill coding in java

First think how you would solve this problem yourself on a piece of paper. Then try programming it using the things you learned (if they've given you this assignment without teaching you to multiply, subtract and use if's, drop the course).
Well here is an idea.

Take the total kilowattage and send it to a function. What the function will do is subtract 14KW from the total Kilowattage and add the amount for the first 14KW then subtract 85KW from the total KW and add the amount for the 85KW. But once you subtract the number of KW from the total make sure to check if the total KW isn't negative, if so just break out of the function and return the total due.

Or if you have formula for how much the rate grows over how many miles.

For example lets say the rate grows by \$1 every time the KW doubles you could have something like

int rate = 1; //Begining rate
int KW = 14; //First flat rate
int amount; //total amount they have to pay
while(totalKW > 0)
{
totalKW -= KW; //subtract the first rate
if(totalKW <= 0) //check if too much subtracted
break; //if so break
amount += rate; //add the rate to the total

rate += 1; // Add \$1 to the rate every time
KW *= 2; // KW is doubled
}

### Printing Totals

The asterix (*) next to the big fat plus key prints the running total.

Just figured that out. Why doesn't Canon have a downloadable manual for this thing?
