Using a scientific calculator

4.4 Other memories

The calculator also has 6 other memories, labelled ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, ‘X’ and ‘Y’, which are accessed using several of the keys in the lower half of the function key area of the calculator. Each memory name is printed in red above the key used to access it.

These memories can be used in exactly the same way as the ‘M’ memory, except that there are no equivalents to the ‘add to memory’ () and ‘subtract from memory’ ((M-)) functions, and no display indicators.
