Some competitive examinations allow the candidates for the use of a calculator but may permit to use the only calculator of non-programmable type.

### Calculators that are NOT programmable:

This is what a non-programmable calculator looks like.

List of few non-programmable calculators of some famous brands like Casio, Sharp, Texas Instruments, Hewlett-Packard.

### Calculators that are Programmable:

Programmable calculators can automatically carry out a sequence of operations under control of a stored program, much like a computer.

Examples of programmable calculators are shown in the picture. This calculator runs on a Computer Algebra System (CAS). A CAS helps to make certain complicated algebraic functions automatic and less tedious. As you can see, these calculators also have graphing capabilities. A calculator with graphing capabilities is most likely to be programmable. The easy way to tell if the calculator has graphing capabilities is by looking at the larger screen that would be found on a scientific calculator.

#### Features of the Programmable calculator:

- These calculators are capable of storing text or alphanumeric data input by a user.
- These calculators are capable of storing, manipulating or graphing functions entered in the symbolic form.
- These programmable calculators are capable of performing operations such as differentiation, definite integration, algebraic expressions, binomial expansion, symbolic differentiation and the solution to a system of equations.
- These calculators are also capable of external communication or Internet connectivity.

is casio 991 MS programmable ??

No, It is Scientific Calculator. Programmable Calculators price range above INR 5k. Regards

Yes Lewis, Casio 991 MS model is a Non Programmable scientific calculator.

Thank God for an article like this when you have a math exam tomorrow.

I thank Vinodh Reddy Chennu.

Right Vinodh. A nice work, with much research. But what I understand, the Programmable Calculators (PC) that you have described herein, infact are calculators with built-in functions. These calculators can sure take text inputs as formula entry for using a built-in function. The Programmable Calculators, in my opinion, are capable of executing set of instructions for calculating/ computing based on mathematical and logical repetitive alogarithms which, in some cases, can also use built in functions of the machine. These set of instructions entered in the PC are coded in basic type environment or similar languages. The programming instruction may include simple formula translation techniques, Logical If statement and Do Loop statements. Casio PCs are Suffixed with P after their model number. eg. FX 502P, FX 5880P etc. Regards
