Key for modular arithmetic
Good morning,
In CAS, modular arithmetic can be performed with the "%%" symbol. As far as I know, typing that requires about 9 keystrokes (the % symbol is in the Chars table). Is there a shortcut for "mod" in CAS? I tried creating a userkey program, but cannot do much better because one must use the MOD operator, it doesn't work with the %%. Any help would be welcome. Thanks.

It should work with MOD, if it requires a function own of CAS can use irem().

What I was wondering was if there is a single keystroke that would perform say 2^36 %% 73. Typing the two %% takes a while, and looking up MOD does too.

Hello,
I know it isn't much consolation, but you should be able to do SHIFTCHARS, TAP % Double tap %, then press ENTER or OK and put both in at once. TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

Perhaps there is a way to leave the USER keyboard on for more that just one keystroke, is there?
