Don't work with the 15C LE

Right, the 15C should return three additional digits, as mentioned in my other post. Since the third digit is zero, you'll see only two (5,9 E–10). ;-)

Sounds a bit like "don't confuse the student and return what he expects". #-)
Do the Casios also return a plain 2 if you calculate 1,414213562 * 1,414213562 manually, i.e. without using the sqrt-key?
Or a plain zero for sin 3,141592653 resp. ...54?
