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).

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

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

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