### Activity: To use techniques to do calculations [LO 1.10]

DID YOU KNOW?

You can use the memory keys of your pocket calculator to do calculations containing more than one operation, correctly!

1. Look for the following keys on your pocket calculator: M+ ; MR or RCM

2. Look carefully at the example:

(168 + 423) + (256 + 389)

2.1 Press 168 + 423 = M+

2.2 Then press 256 + 389 = M+

2.3 Then press MR or RCM

TAKE NOTE:

The M+-key makes it possible for the calculator to memorise or store the answer.

The MR (Memory Recall) or RCM (ReCall Memory) key is used when you want to recall all the memorised answers.

3. Use your pocket calculator’s memory to calculate:

3.1 (10 876 + 23 982) + (43 567 + 21 309)
