I admit playing with my calculators as a pastime. I analyzed one resistive divider until I knew all the answers. I would enter the lower resistor into the t register and enter the upper resistor, add and divide and I got the total resistance and then the fraction of the divider. I wondered what would happen if I multiplied and subtracted and the number that resulted was the output resistance of the tap. Totally unexpected. When selecting constants from the list. I wondered what would happen if I keyed a number, it selected the constant numbered from left to right and entered it as well. Worked with the 33S and later the 35S. I find your divider solution on the 50g trivial, I like mine. Sam 80 I started with the first 35. I flat hate your invisible decimal, use a bigger symbol. I use the comma for greater visibility.

Darn, you guys are quick at finding bugs, and discovering that they have already been fixed!

So, is this to be some kind of guessing game then? We buy a product with known defects, but it's up to us to figure out what they are? Is that their new corporate policy?
