Clearing Storage Registers
To clear a single storage register — that is, to replace the number in it with

registers, and the LAST X register — press

Storage Register Arithmetic
Suppose you wanted to perform an arithmetic operation with the number in the
display and the number in a storage register, then store the result back into the
same register without altering the number in the display. The hp 12c platinum

1. Press ?.
2. Press +, -, §, or z to specify the desired operation.
3. Key in the register number.

determined according to the following rule:
Storage register arithmetic is possible with only registers R
through R
