Modify Function
(11)
In this calculator, all calculation results are internally obtained
in scientific notation with up to 12 digits for the mantissa.
However, since calculation results are displayed in the form
designated by the display notation and the number of decimal
places indicated, the internal calculation result may differ from
that shown in the display. By using the modify function, the
internal value is converted to match that of the display, so that
the displayed value can be used without change in subse-
quent operations.

Statistical Calculation Formulas
(14)
Refer also to the operation examples sheet.
In the statistical calculation formulas, an error will occur when:
• the absolute value of the intermediate result or calculation
result is equal to or greater than 1 
×
 10
100
.
• the denominator is zero.
• an attempt is made to take the square root of a negative
number.
ERROR AND CALCULATION RANGES
Errors
An error will occur if an operation exceeds the calculation
ranges, or if a mathematically illegal operation is attempted.
When an error occurs, pressing 
<
 (or 
>
) automatically
moves the cursor back to the place in the equation where the
error occurred. Edit the equation or press
  ª
 to clear the
equation.
Error Codes and Error Types
Syntax error (Error 1):
An attempt was made to perform an invalid operation.
Ex. 2 
@{
Calculation error (Error 2):
The absolute value of an intermediate or final calculation result
equals or exceeds 10
100
.
An attempt was made to divide by 0.
The calculation ranges were exceeded while performing calcu-
lations.
Depth error (Error 3):
The available number of buffers was exceeded. (There are 8
buffers* for numeric values and 16 buffers for calculation in-
structions). *4 buffers in STAT mode.
Equation too long (Error 4):
The equation exceeded its maximum input buffer (142 charac-
ters). An equation must be shorter than 142 characters.
Calculation Ranges
(15)
Refer also to the operation examples sheet.
• Within the ranges specified, this calculator is accurate to ±1
in the least significant digit of the mantissa. When perform-
ing continuous calculations (including chain calculations),
errors accumulate leading to reduced accuracy.
Time, Decimal and Sexagesimal Calculations
(9)
Conversion between decimal and sexagesimal numbers can
be performed. In addition, the four basic arithmetic operations
and memory calculations can be carried out using the
sexagesimal system.
Random Numbers
A pseudo-random number with three significant digits can be
generated by pressing 
@
 
`  =
. To generate the
next random number, press 
=
. You can perform this func-
tion in the normal and statistics modes.
• Random numbers use memory Y. Each random number is
generated on the basis of the value stored in memory Y
(pseudo-random number series).
Angular Unit Conversions
(5)
Each time 
@
 
g
 are pressed, the angular unit changes
in sequence.
Memory Calculations
(6)
This calculator has 6 temporary memories (A-D, X and Y),
one independent memory (M) and one last answer memory.
Independent memory and temporary memories are only avail-
able in the normal mode.
[Temporary memories (A-D, X and Y)]
A stored value can be recalled as a value or variable for the
use in equations.
• In case you store an infinite decimal in the memory, recall it
as a variable to obtain accurate answers.

[Independent memory (M)]
In addition to all the features of temporary memories, a value
can be added to or subtracted from an existing memory value.
[Last answer memory (ANS)]
The calculation result obtained by pressing 
=
 or any other
calculation ending instruction is automatically stored in the
last answer memory.
Note:
Calculation results from the functions indicated below are
automatically stored in memories X or Y. For this reason,
when using these functions, be careful with the use of memo-
ries X and Y.

used in the following calculation.
For example, you can calculate by 
⁄=
 and 
s=
.
The previous calculation result will not be recalled after enter-
ing multiple instructions.
Fraction Calculations
(8)
This calculator performs arithmetic operations and memory
calculations using a fraction, and conversion between a deci-
mal number and a fraction.

a fraction.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
Notes on Battery Replacement
Improper handling of batteries can cause electrolyte leakage
or explosion. Be sure to observe the following handling rules:
• Replace both batteries at the same time.
• Do not mix new and old batteries.
