Recalling a Numerical Variable
Now that you've created the variable VOL, return its value to the
stack.
Put the name VOL on the stack, taking advantage of the USER menu.

This is the number you stored in VOL.
If you're accustomed to a calculator with storage registers, recalling is
a familiar process. On the HP-28S, variables are recalled infrequently;
more often they are
evaluated.
Evaluating a Numerical Variable
For numerical variables, "evaluating" has the same meaning as "recall-
ing"-evaluating a numerical variable returns the number to the stack.
You'll see that evaluation is easier. (When you create a program vari-
able later in this chapter, you'll see that evaluating and recalling can
have quite different effects.)
Return the value of VOL to the stack by evaluation.

You can also evaluate VOL by typing in its name
without quotes.
