# EXAMPLE 1: Simple Arithmetic: Simply follow the sequence

To evaluate: 50 + 45 x 3

Enter as follows: 50, +, 45, *, 3, =

To evaluate: 50 x 45-2

Enter as follows: 50, *, 45, -, 2, =

To evaluate: 25 x (5+5)

Enter as follows: 25, *, (, 5, +, 5, ), =

# EXAMPLE 2: To evaluate function(value), enter value followed by function

To evaluate: 2 + log(20) x 5

Enter as follows: 20, log, *, 5, +, 2, =

To evaluate: log(30) x 5 – 7

Enter as follows: 30, log,*, 5, -, 7, =

To evaluate: In(25) x 2 + 5

Enter as follows: 25, In, *, 2, +, 5, =
