## Content

### To determine output values for given input values [LO 2.3.1, LO 2.3.3]

Were you able to explain how to programme a pocket calculator? If not, ask a friend to help you. Answer the following questions if you understand how to do the programming.

1. Key in: 10 x 15 = = = =

____________________________________________________________________

2. Why does your calculator eventually say 15 000 000 E? _________________

_____________________________________________________________________

3. What does die E stand for? ________________________________________

4. Complete the following:

4.1 346 x 1 000 = 346 x 10o ___________________________________

4.2 346 x 100 000 = 346 x 10o _________________________________

4.2 346 x 10 000 000 = 346 x 10o _______________________________

5. Complete the following tables:

 5.1 1 × 25 25 2 × 25 _____ 5 × 25 _____ 8 × 25 _____ 12 × 25 _____
 5.2 1 × 100 100  4 25 2 × 100 _____  4 _____ 5 × 100 _____  4 _____ 8 × 100 _____  4 _____ 12 × 100 _____  4 _____

6. What do you realise when you look at the answers of these two tables?
