Input Capacity F-730SX can accommodate up to 87 steps in Normal mode and 47 steps in STAT mode in a single calculation. One step is used when you press one of the numeric keys, arithmetic keys, scientific calculation keys or key.
Inputting and Editing Calculations New input begins on the left of the upper (entry) line. When the entries are over 11 digits, the line will move to the right consecutively. Press to scroll the cursor within the upper (entry) line and edit your calculation as needed. Example (Editing an Entry): 567+889900█...
Order of Operations The calculator will automatically determine the operation priority. This means that algebraic expressions can be entered just as they are written and the calculation priority is as follows: 1st Priority Recall memory (A-E), RAND Calculation with parentheses ( ). Function with parentheses that requests the input argument to the right.

BASIC CALCULATIONS Arithmetic Calculations • To calculate negative values (excludes the negative exponent), make sure that the values are enclosed with parentheses. • To input negative values, use Calculation Expression Operation Display (Result) –0.0008 • You can omit the close parenthesis if the calculation ends with or if the values are stored in memory variables.
Memory Calculations Memory Variables • There are 5 Memory Variables (A, B, C, D and E) which are used for storing data, results, or dedicated values. • To store values in memory, press + Memory Variable. • To recall a previous calculation in memory, press Memory Variable.
