||The above is a screen shot of the
business calculator. The actual screen size will be a little bit
larger than this image shows. Note the readout on the right hand
side that shows calculations as you go.
Yes, rpsoft2000 is the author of this software. However,
we ourselves are still tickled with this new business calculator that has been
added to the convert 2000 software package. It has rapidly become almost
the only calculator that we use any more. It features a simulated paper
tape readout that shows calculations as you go. Hence it is excellent for
balancing check books, or accounts, or even for usage as a temporary software
Included of course are the normal functions of addition,
subtraction, multiplication and division. But it also includes some more
features as percentage help, some cash register functions, a visible ten item
memory, and even some buttons for custom constants that you can set up - such as
commission rates. If you wish, the business calculator also can send its
output to the default printer connected to your computer.
Simulated Cash Register functions include "tax and total" for
calculating tax and showing it separately, and then the total. "Cash
and Change" which allows you to enter the amount the customer pays and then
calculates change. And "Credit Card" which allows for a signature below
for customers to sign. You can also add a custom name of yourself or your
customer at the top of the tape print - within certain length restrictions of
More: Keyboard "hot keys" allow you to control much of
this calculator from the number pad on your computer
NEW Optional Scientific keys
If you look at the small button in the middle upper right that
says "SCI >". clicking this button opens the business calculator wider and
shows the first bank of scientific keys. The two items at the bottom are
different and you go from the image on the left to the image on the right, you
would use the lower right button "More?" in order to get the second bank of
keys. And of course the lower right key on the image on the right labeled
"Back?" again takes you back to the rist bank of keys. Note also on both
of these that the "SCI >" button in the blue area upper right now says "BUS <"
and of course therefore takes you back to the business secition.
NEW SCIENTIFIC SECTION
We tried to include the most commonly used functions in this
second. Notice also the for each bank of keys that there are two rows of
scientific keys. In many cases the button on the right is the opposite of
the button on the left. For example, squaring an item x2 has the square
root just to the right of it. So how does it work? Let us say that
we begin with 5 in the accumulator. We will just put it there. Then
when we use x2 it will "square" the accumulator, which means multiplying itself
by itself. So then the answer, 25 would show in the accumulator. Now
if we use the button on the right, the square root, of 25, we would again go
back to where we began - at "5" in the accumulator.
Notice also that for trigonometry functions that we give the
option with bullet choices for either working in radians or degrees. Note
that there are also buttons that just modify something from degrees to radians
also, if you wish to do that also. On the second set of scientific buttons
we do include n! which will give a factorial answer. There also is a
"distr" key which you would press in order to begin entering a series of
numbers. Up to 500 of them I believe. And you would press "enter"
after entering each item in this list. Then when you press the "distr" key
again will then work on the data and tell you the average, the norm, the sigma,
the highest entry, the lowest entry and a few other items about it.
The scientific keys do not repeat on purpose as do some of the
normal business +, -, x and / (divide) keys can. We did this to ensure no
odd complexities or confusion.
Overall - Convert 2000 is a collection of Six Calculators
A computer calculator with some excellent features. It includes a
simulated paper tape readout on screen that shows calculations as you go -
and it can also print to a default printer. It also includes 10 memory locations
that are visible to help you remember which memory value is which.
Metric to English Calculator:
that includes conversions for: weight, distance, volume, temperature,
hexadecimal to ascii and decimal, and quality sigma to ppm
- Mortgage Loan Calculator:
that allows you to calculate any of the four items of: Principal
(amount of loan) , interest rate, term of loan, or payment amount by
entering the other three. An amortization schedule that also
allows save and print is included. Many options.
- Quality Calculator: Many
Handheld calculators will do statistics. This one does not. What
it does do is include many items not found on hand held calculators
including mtbf calculations, and the relationship between mtbf, mttr and
system availability. Also includes ppm to sigma calculations plus
fahrenheit to celsius conversion.
- Chinese Calendar Calculator:
This calculator is a simplistic approximation of the Chinese tradition of
naming years after animals and how it relates to our own Gregorian solar
calendar years. It is a simple approximation, and is mostly included
- Custom Calculator:
Allows 9 lines of programmable calculations. It does not include all
programmable functions, but includes many of the common ones such as
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, %, logs, natural logs,
exponentiation, and more. It does not allow parenthesis but does allow
multi-line information transfer at least in a downward direction. This
can be set up for many common small business needs. Examples included
within the calculator.
- Cellular Calculator:
This might be primarily for those in the cellular
business. It can translate cellular serial number for small or large (two
types) of serial numbers between decimal or hexadecimal. And no, it is not
just a simple overall conversion.
- Odds Calculator: Gives three different sections on the screen that can help
calculate odds for some common items. The help screen for it also provides
examples and how to set up odds - something you might find both fun and
- Hunting Calculator: Provides some basic information for speed and gravity
for items thrown or shot. As soon as an item is thrown or shot, gravity
causes it to fall. How much do you need to compensate for? If skeet
shooting at a moving target, how much to lead it?
Overall - Of course, with differences in definitions and rounding
techniques, you will need to check settings and ensure suitability of these
calculators for your own needs. However, this software can be an
exceptional help when you need it and it comes at a very low package price.
Switch from one calculator to another by simply clicking on the calculator you
wish on the pull-down menu that it is on each main calculator screen. An
option file can remember your settings if you wish it to be saved. Load
and save of multiple options is also provided for.
