Percentage functions
These functions are used to calculate percentages and related values as follows:
% (y,x)
%CH(y,x) : calculates 100(y-x)/x, i.e., the percentage change, the
%T(y,x)
These functions require two arguments, we illustrate the calculation of
%T(15,45), i.e., calculation 15% of 45, next. We assume that the calculator is
set to ALG mode, and that system flag 117 is set to CHOOSE boxes. The
procedure is as follows:
„´
