Multiple versions of the TI-36X exist with the same type designation. The first one
(introduced in 1993) has s different, more rectangular, look. Personally I prefer
the look of the first version of the TI-36.
Wikipedia lists (link valid 2023-01-28) the following types:
This TI-36X has quite a lot of functionality. It has all the standard functions of a scientific calculator, plus BASE conversion, logical operations, eight physical constants (c, g, m_{e}, e, h, N_{A}, R and G). It also does English/metric conversions. Two separate shift keys are required to be able to access this multiple of functions. The calculator has 3 separate memories, to use them one has to press one of the memory buttons followed by the number 1, 2 or 3. A nice addition to fraction calculations is the 'F◄►D' key. It can be used to find the fraction of a decimal number (if possible). Does not work when the fractional representation does not fit on the display. It can also be used to see the decimal representation of a fraction. Repeated calculations can be performed by typing a number followed by the '=' key. This will repeat the last used operand. So, for instance then the calculation '2 x 5 =' was performed, typing '7 =' will display the result '35'. The arrow key at the bottom left of the calculator, can be used to delete the right-most character in display. I would expect this arrow to point to the left as a kind of back-space. |
