Not entirely sure how to classify this, it's not quite a
scientific calculator but it's not a basic calculator either
because it has squares, reciprocals, π and brackets.
This calculator is functionally equivalent to the Philips SBC 155 (which has a very annoying key-press beep).
Next to the four basic functions it has a memory, percentages, some scientific functions and even brackets (one level deep). It also has a "π"-key but lacks the trigonometric functions. The constant π however can still be very useful for calculations upon circles and spheres and their derivatives.
