This is your key to unprecedented calculating
capacity. Only Hewlett-Packard offers it.
It lets you "speak" to your calculator with total consistency, because
it lets you load data into a 4-Register Stack. This means: (1) you always
enter and process your data the same way, no matter what your problem;
(2) you don't have to re-enter data; (3) you can see all intermediate data
Our HP-45 is one of two pre-programmed scientific pocket-sized
computer calculators with this key. That's one reason it's the most pow-
erful pre-programmed pocket-sized scientific computer calculator. Here
are three of many others:
1. It's pre-programmed to handle 44 arithmetic, trigonometric and
logarithmic functions and data manipulation operations beyond the
basic four (+, -, x, --).
2. It lets you store nine constants in its rine Addressable Memory
Registers, and it gives you a "Last X" Register for error correction or
multiple operations on the same number.
3. It displays up to 10 significant digits in either fixed-decimal or
scientific notation and automatically positions the decimal point through-
out its 200-decade range.
Our HP-35 is the other. It handles 22 functions, has one Addressable
Memory Register and also displays up to 10 digits in either fixed-decimal
or scientific notation. It's the second most powerful pre-programmed
pocket-sized scientific computer calculator.
Both of these exceptional instruments are on display now. If you're
looking for unprecedented calculating capacity for your money, by all
means see and test them.
