O Off Key — Turns all power off, clearing all non-permanent registers. o On/Clear Key — Turns on power. Pressing once clears the display. Pressing twice clears all temporary values. Ç Convert Key — Used with the dimensional keys to convert between dimensions or with other keys to access special functions. √ Square Root Key — Used to find the Square Root of a non-dimensional or area value. Ç√ x2 Function — Finds the Square of a linear or nondimensional value. POCKET REFERENCE GUIDE — 1 ® Recall Key — Used with other keys to recall stored values and settings. µ Memory Key — Adds the displayed value to Memory. Clears when the calculator is shut off. Çµ Memory Minus (M–) — Subtracts the displayed value from Memory. Ç® Memory Clear — Clears Memory without changing current display. ®® Memory Clear — Clears Memory and displays Memory Total. Dimension Keys y Yards Key — Enters or converts to Yards. f Feet Key — Enters or converts to Feet as whole or decimal numbers. Also used with the i and / keys for entering Feet-Inch values (e.g., 6 f 9 i 1 / 2). Repeated presses during conversions toggle between Fractional and Decimal Feet. POCKET REFERENCE GUIDE — 2 i Inch Key — Enters or converts to Inches. Entry can be whole or decimal numbers. Also used with the / key for entering fractional inch values (e.g., 9 i 1 / 2). Repeated presses during conversions toggle 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) is not entered, the calculator's fractional accuracy setting is automatically used. m Meters Key — Enters or converts to Meters. c Centimeters Key — Enters or converts to Centimeters. M Millimeters Key — Enters or converts to Millimeters. b Board Feet Key — Enters or converts Cubic values to Board Feet. One Board Foot is equal to 144 Cubic Inches.
