# Basic Calculator

## Calculator Use

This is a simple basic calculator with memory functions similar to a small handheld calculator. Use this basic calculator for addition, subtraction, division and multiplication calculations. Memory and clear functions for this standard calculator are listed below.

- mc = Clear Memory
- m+ = Add to Memory
- m- = Subtract from Memory
- mr = Memory Recall
- AC = Clear All
- CE = Clear Entry

The calculator memory is at 0 until you hit *m+* or *m-*. Each time you hit *m+* the number on the display is added to the number in the calculator memory. Each time you hit *m-* the number on the display is subtracted from the number in the calculator memory. To recall the number in the calculator memory hit *mr*. To zero out the memory hit *mc*.

Use *AC* to clear out the current calculation. Use *CE* to clear out the most recent entry. Note that if the *AC* key is not visible, hit *CE* and then *AC* to clear out your calculation.
