If you make an error in your calculation and you have pressed the equals button Replay keys (arrow keys) If you have entered the question and pressed equals you can still go back and fix up a mistake. Eg, suppose in the question you entered 56.78 + 1.004 and your answer was 57.784. You realise your mistake. Now use the back arrow button until you get to the position you wish to change. If you enter any number it will insert it into the question and you would delete what you dont need. Pressing equals will give you the new answer

56.78+1.0004

57.7804

If you make an error as you enter the question DEL
