Calculator and Math

    If the calculator exceeds its limit, you have to clear out the memory and restart your work. In other words, if you have an exponent or factorial situation like 12^25 or 40!, you will not be able to use the calculator. The calculator is good for basic arithmetic operations but outside square root has no ability to do any sophisticated calculations.

    I wrote an article about the calculator and the importance of using the keypad here:
