    10-8-1 MEMORY Mode 10-8 MEMORY Mode This calculator has two separate memory areas: a “current area” and a “storage area.” The current area is a work area where you can perform input data, perform calculations and run programs. Data in the current area is relatively safe, but it can be deleted when batteries go dead or when you perform a full reset.

  • Page 22 10-8-9 MEMORY Mode k Optimizing the Storage Area Storage area memory can become fragmented after many store and load operations. Fragmentation can cause blocks of memory to become unavailable for data storage. Because of this, you should periodically perform the storage area optimization procedure, which rearranges the data in the storage area and makes memory usage more economical.
