Where is the M+ (memory) button?

Asked by Terminator on 2013-08-29

I would like to be able to press a button and choose one of (I think) 10 memory positions to save the current number to like I was used to when using Ubuntu years ago.

This is a very basic function that even the simplest calculator usually has and I would really appreciate being able to use this again.

Maybe there even is a simple way to get this to work again that I am not aware of?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

You can set a variable with the keyboard, just enter y=2 of something similar. Then 3*y to get 6.
The special variable "ans" contains the last result → x=ans to store it in x.

That is not what I was asking for.

I was aware of the possibility of creating variables, but this in no way equals the ease of use of the memory button to have a quick overview of all the last numbers I used.

Using variables is probably the closest you have. Otherwise, you could copy one answer/number to the clipboard (CRTL + C). I don't see why using variables should be a problems myself. They do the job just as well.

Try Kcalc - does exactly what you'd expect, like a normal calculator!

Can you help with this problem?
