Not your average calculator then? In that case it should definately automatically turn off after a period of it not being used, it can't be that bigger lost. Just looked it up and I'm surprised for that money it doesn't have two way power o-O.
Two-way power is out of the question. With the computations it has to make, it'd shut off trying to do those calculations if it ran on solar power. xD It takes a lot of juice to run.

Oh no...its definately not the average calculator
. It is my best friend on tests and exams
. There are so many functions on it...just to give you one example, it has this function called solve(), which takes in an equation and a variable to solve for. It solves for that variable doing all the necessary operations and gives you a number or an equation...depending on your input. It's just great
. Definately not the average calculator
. That's just one of its features too...this is like the best calculator on the market. It's actually banned on the ACT because of its features
Anyway, i rotated the batteries within their compartment and the problem seemed to go away for a while. I'll see what happens next
. I don't want to spend another $100 or so to buy a new one
. I don't even have $100
I love that solve function. Works so nicely for so many things.
The only thing I don't like about it is how the matrices are done.
Not very primed for timed situations, but everything else is beautiful.
I love how it isn't banned on the SAT's tho. I was expecting it to be, but it isn't. 'Tis awesome.
