- When you enter the
**Calculation**application, the cursor is in the editing bar at the bottom of the screen. Enter your calculation in this edit bar. - Press the
**EXE**key. The calculation is performed.

When a calculation is performed, it is displayed at the bottom of the calculation history. In the history line corresponding to this calculation, you will see the calculation you typed in at the top left and the result at the bottom right. The exact result is displayed in black while the approximate numerical result is displayed in grey.

For more readability, the result of the calculations involving a decimal number is always given in decimal form: $0.1+0.3$ will give $0.4$ while $\frac{1}{10}+\frac{3}{10}$ will give $\frac{2}{5}$.

You can use the exact result of the calculation you just performed in the expression of a new calculation. To do so, press **Ans**. The expression `ans`

is then displayed in the editing line and represents the result of the previous calculation. You can perform mathematical operations on this result.

To copy a previous result to the calculation editing bar, use the arrow keys to select the result you want to use (exact or approximate), then press **OK**. The result is then displayed in the editing bar at the bottom of the screen.

You can copy the expression of a calculation that has already been performed to the calculation editing bar. To do so, select the expression of this calculation using the directional arrows. Then press **OK**, the expression of the calculation is then displayed in the edit bar at the bottom of the screen.

To delete a line in the history, use the arrow keys to select an item from this line and press **DEL**.

To delete the entire history, select any item in the history using the arrow keys and use the **clear** function (**shift** then **DEL**).

Your results can be displayed in rectangular or polar form. Make this setting in the Settings application.

In rectangular form, the calculation of $\sqrt{-1}$ will give the result $i$. In polar form, the calculation of $\sqrt{-1}$ will give the result $e^{1.570797*i}$.

In the polar form, the angle in the exponential is always given in radians, even if the calculator is set in degrees mode.

You can perform calculations with complex numbers as well as with real numbers. Your complex numbers can be typed in rectangular or polar form.

For example: if you type $i+e^{i*\frac{\pi}{2}}$, the result will be $2i$ if you are in rectangular mode and $2e^{1.570796*i}$ if you are in polar mode.

You can calculate these values by using the shortcuts available in the **Complex numbers** section of the **Toolbox** menu to which you have access when you press the **Toolbox** key.

You can also manually type the functions used to calculate these values. In the following list are the syntaxes of the corresponding functions :

- Absolute value :
`abs(z)`

- Argument :
`arg(z)`

- Real part :
`re(z)`

- Imaginary part :
`im(z)`

- Conjugate :
`conj(z)`

To type a matrix in the editing bar at the bottom of the screen, use the brackets `[`

and `]`

, accessible by pressing **shift** then **exp** or **ln**.

For example, type `[[1,0][0,1]]`

to type the size 2 identity matrix :

When you press **OK**, you can see your matrix displayed with the correct formatting in the calculation history.

It is useful to store matrices in variables (**M1**, **M2**, …, **M9**). To do so, type your matrix then use the function **sto →** (by pressing **shift** then **pow**). Then type the name of the variable you want and press **EXE**. For example, to store the size 2 identity matrix in variable M1, write `[[1.0][0.1]] → M1`

and press **EXE**.

You can perform calculations between several matrices:

- Addition of two matrices:
`M1+M2`

- Subtraction of two matrices:
`M1-M2`

- Multiplication of two matrices (matrix product) :
`M1*M2`

- Division of two matrices (inverse multiplication) :
`M1/M2`

(corresponds to $M1*M2^{-1}$)

You can also perform calculations between a number and a matrix:

- Multiplication of a matrix by a scalar:
`4*M1`

- Power of a matrix:
`M1^5`

You can calculate these values by using the shortcuts available in the **Matrix** section of the **Toolbox** menu to which you have access when you press the **Toolbox** key.

You can also manually type the functions used to calculate these values. In the following list are the syntaxes of the corresponding functions:

- Inverse :
`inverse(M)`

- Determinant :
`det(M)`

- Transpose :
`transpose(M)`

- Trace :
`trace(M)`

- Size :
`dim(M)`
