Hi.

I’m thinking the pros here (all MoHPC folks) have more insights.

On the easy side, even both editions of the Casio fx-115ES feature the multi-statement : feature. So, if the CW and a 991 at that is supposed to be an up-step from the 115, why would Casio not feature the : multi-statement feature?

Regarding the pros, it appears that CW series is more profitable for Casio, judging by the recent quarterly earnings report:

Best idea for me that I have reinforcement—Both 115ES Plus editions, 991ES Plus 2nd Edition, and the incredible 991EX.

I guess that Casio thought the either the multi statement colon wasn't used enough or school restrictions.

At least the multi-statement : is still included in the fx-7400GIII, fx-9750GIII and fx-9860GIII

Pardon my ignorance…what is a multi statement function? I wonder if the 991CW has a workaround…I can define g(x) to include a reference to f(x)…

Hi, Irdheat

Multi-statements is like a program.

Here is an example, calculating ellipse perimeter via AGM

note: for FX-115MS, B = √AB means B = √(A*B)

In other words, calculate ellipse perimeter from a much less eccentric ellipse.

Using my Casio FX-115MS, AGM2 method for Halley's comet, numbers from here

A = 2667950000

B = 678281900

C = A²

D = B²

E = 0.5

F=B-A : C=C-EF² : B=√AB : A=A+F/2 : E=2E

Keep pressing "=" until F=0 (so that A,B,C all converged)

\(\large\pi\)(C+D)/B → ellipse perimeter = 11,464,318,984.1 km

Now I have another formula for my 115s & 991s. And a superb CALC example also.

Plus, it’ll make for another program for my 34, 67, and 42.
