Random numbers
A pseudorandom number, with three signiﬁ cant digits from 0
up to 0.999, can be generated by pressing @ w 0
e.
Note: In the WriteView editor, the result will be a fraction or 0.
Random dice
To simulate a dierolling, a random integer between 1 and 6
can be generated by pressing @ w 1 e.
Random coin
To simulate a coin ﬂ ip, 0 (heads) or 1 (tails) can be randomly
generated by pressing @ w 2 e.
Random integer
An integer between 0 and 99 can be generated randomly by
pressing @ w 3 e.
Angular Unit Conversions
Each time @ ] is pressed, the angular unit changes in
sequence.
Memory Calculations
Memory calculations can be performed in NORMAL and STAT
modes.
J 0 0 (default)
Temporary memories (A–F, X and Y)
Press x and a variable key to store a value in memory.
Press t and a variable key to recall the value from that
3
memory. To place a variable in an equation, press ; and a
variable key.
Independent memory (M)
In addition to all the features of temporary memories, a value
can be added to or subtracted from an existing memory value.
Press j x M to clear the independent memory (M).
Last answer memory (ANS)
The calculation result obtained by pressing = or any other
calculation ending instruction is automatically stored in the
last answer memory.
Notes:
• Calculation results from the functions indicated below are
automatically stored in the X or Y memories replacing any
existing values.

STAT mode: X memory (1:), Y memory (2:)
• Use of t or ; will recall the value stored in memory
using up to 14 digits.
Deﬁ nable memories (D1–D4)
You can store functions or operations in deﬁ nable memories
(D1–D4).
• To store a function or operation, press x, followed by
a deﬁ nable memory key (I, J, K, or L),
followed by the operation you want to store. Menurelated
operations, such as J, cannot be stored. Press j to
return to the previous display.
• To call a stored function or operation, press the
corresponding memory key. Calling a stored function will do
nothing if the function that is called would be unusable in the
current context.
• Any functions or operations that are stored in a deﬁ nable
memory will be replaced when you save a new one into that
memory.
• When displaying and correcting a data set in STAT mode,
you cannot store functions or operations in deﬁ nable
memories.
Chain Calculations
The previous calculation result can be used in the subsequent
4
calculation. However, it cannot be recalled after entering
multiple instructions.
Fraction Calculations
5
Arithmetic operations and memory calculations can be
performed using fractions. In NORMAL mode, conversion
between a decimal number and a fraction can be performed
by pressing U.
Notes:
• Improper/proper fractions will be converted to and displayed
as decimal numbers if the number of digits used in their
expression is greater than nine. In the case of mixed
fractions, the maximum number of displayable digits
(including integers) is eight.
• To convert a sexagesimal value to a fraction, ﬁ rst convert it
by pressing @ :.
• If the product is not to be used for some time, to avoid
damage to the unit from a leaking battery, remove it and
store in a safe place.
• Do not leave an exhausted battery inside the product.
• Keep batteries out of the reach of children.
• An exhausted battery left in the calculator may leak and
damage the calculator.
• Explosion risk may be caused by incorrect handling.

• Do not throw batteries into a ﬁ re as they may explode.
Replacement Procedure
1. Turn the power off by pressing @ o.
2. Remove the two screws. (Fig. 1)
3. Slide the battery cover slightly and lift it to remove.
4. ELW531/W531G/W535: Remove the used battery by
prying it out with a ballpoint pen or other similar pointed
device. (Fig. 2)

7. Press the RESET switch (on the back) with the tip of a
ballpoint pen or similar object.
8. Adjust the display contrast. See "Adjusting the Display
Contrast".
• Make sure that the display appears as shown below. If the
display does not appear as shown, remove the battery,
reinstall it, and check the display once again.
