I gotta get one of these for maths!

Hmm, too expensive for me:  I got one with 42 functions for \$8 (I remember when the first ones came out with 4 functions: add, subtract, multiply, and divide and they were like \$200 or more).

Kryptonite (author)2010-03-07

I bought a pen and a notepad for \$3. Beats all of your calculators!

Goodhart (author)2010-03-07
Meh, they give them out free now (the 4 function ones) if you visit certain companies LOL

Awesome, I should do some research...

I never seen : used as division... I only seen ÷, / and the other one I can't make properly with a few keywords.

Goodhart (author)2010-03-06
Oh I bet you've seen the others here too: http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/58409.html

According to:   http://searchdatacenter.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid80_gci803019,00.html
the :  sign means:
 : Colon, ratio sign ... is to ... ... such that ... ... it is true that ... Division or ratio, symbol following logical quantifier or used in defining a set 2:4 = 20:40 x : x > 4 and x < 5x : x < 0 or x > -1S = {x : x < 3}

I assume the button next to the multiplication button is division? (I never saw a division sign like that)

MichelMoermans (author)2010-03-03

Weird... it's commonly used in Europe.

We actually started with "/" and then in highschool you work with ":"

Goodhart (author)2010-02-28
Well, I don't think there is one in the printable "ASCII" code table, is there?  The dash with a dot above and below it.

Rock Soldier (author)2010-02-28

I wouldn't know. (Unless if I misunderstood you)

Goodhart (author)2010-02-28
no, what they use in ASCII,  IIRC is the / sign for division.

symbol isn't represented, unless it is in the extended ones.

Haaahahahahahaha
I'm sure this will still confuse some people!

Goodhart (author)2010-02-28
Yes, there IS more than one button ;-)
