    Calculator Upgrade

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I use my calculator at work allot. I'm looking for a calculator for my Pearl that will do compound adding and multiplying.

    Example: when I'm measuring a home for flooring, I need to add the room sizes as I go.

    12 X 14 + 12 X 16 + 10 X 12 etc...

    I'm not sure what Its called but this is what I'm trying to do. It worked great on my Samsung phone but this one will multiply the numbers but only adds the first number from the next room.

    Thanks for your help.

    Have you tried using MS and M+ it does what you want for me.
    Like this

    3*5 = MS, 3*8 = M+, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    I've gotta admit this is one of the few areas where Palm has the edge. The calculator function on my E2 is much better and the calculator on my treo 600 is superior to the basic program on my Pearl... Not that I ever used them all, but they're there... ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    If you mean the standard one, have you deleted it? It is normally one of the core apps on your BB. If you did then download and install to your PC, the Pearl Device Software from the BB website for your Carrier. If not, then it may be hidden or moved into a folder.

    You cant do order of operation or parenthesis so no the basic is not good enough
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    I couldn't find the download for 8100. Only saw for the storm.
    Life is like a movie, you've sat through half of it and its sucked so far, it probably isn't gonna get great right at the end to make it all worthwhile. you shouldn't get blamed for walking out early
