between Fractional and
Decimal Inches.
/
Fraction Bar Key — Used
to enter Fractions. Fractions
can be entered as proper
(1/2, 1/8, 1/16) or improper
(3/2, 9/8). If the denominator
(bottom value) is not
entered, the calculator's
fractional accuracy setting is
automatically used.

16”, 13”, 12”, 10”, 8”, 6”, 4”,
2”, 1” and 24”).
Note: Tile sizes shown in Inches, not Square Inches.
In other words, a 6 Inch tile is really 6 Inches x
6 Inches, or a 36 Square Inch tile, but it is labeled
as a 6 Inch-size.
sTa
Grout Width – Stores
Grout Width in Inches; used
in calculating the number of
tiles. To recall this setting,
press v T. Default is 0
(no grout width).

Post Spacing — Stores
Post Spacing On-center for
fence in Feet-Inches. To
recall this setting, press
v f. Default is 8 Feet.
POCKET REFERENCE GUIDE — 5
S
Studs — Calculates
number of studs, based
on an entered linear
distance and a stored
On-center Spacing.
Note: Automatically adds one stud to the calculated
answer to account for one on the end.
sS
On-center for Studs —
Stores On-center spacing
for studs in Inches. To
recall this setting, press
v S. Default is 16”.
F
Flooring — Calculates the
required length for 12’, 13’,
15’ or 6’ wide rolls, based on
an entered area. Calculates
the coverage area, in
Square yards, for each roll
width, based on the entered
length.
CF
Sheets — Calculates the
number of 4’ x 8’, 4’ x 9’,
4’ x 10’ and 4’ x 12’ sheets,
based on entered linear
distance or area.
c
Custom Tile — Calculates
number of tiles needed
based on an entered area
and a stored Tile Size. This
is used separately from the
regular Tile Key ( T).
Note: Calculation does not account for grout width for
custom tiles, so you will need to adjust for this.

Inches. To recall this setting,
press v c. Default is
24-Square Inches.
b
Concrete — Calculates the
number of 80 lbs., 60 lbs.
and 40 lbs. bags of

Yards). Calculates the
volume of concrete yielded
by the entered quantity of
bags for each of the
three bag sizes.
Cb
Brick — Calculates the
number of standard
8-Inch-size U.S. bricks
(with 3/8” mortar) based
on entered linear distance
(or area) for both “face”
(21-Square Inch) and
“paver” (32-Square Inch)
brick applications.
B
Block — Calculates the

Accuracy/Errors
Accuracy/Display Capacity — Your calculator has a twelve-digit display made up of
eight digits (normal display) and four fractional digits. You may enter or calculate
values up to 19,999,999.99. Each calculation is carried out internally to twelve digits.
Most material calculations will result in an
answer rounded up two places. Press the
= key to see the non-rounded value.
Errors — When an incorrect entry is made,
or the answer is beyond the range of the
calculator, it will display an error. To clear
an error condition you must hit the o
button once. At this point, you must
determine what caused the error and
re-key the problem.
Error Codes:
DISPLAY
ERROR TYPE
OFLO
MATH Error
DIM Error
ENT Error
Overflow (too large)
Divide by 0
Dimension error
Entry error
Auto-Range — If an “overflow” is created
because of an input and calculation with
small units that are out of the standard
seven-digit range of the display, the
answer will be automatically expressed in
the next larger units (instead of showing
“OFLO”) — e.g., 20,000,000 mm is shown
as 20,000 m. Also applies to inches, feet
and yards.
