Love the constant functionality on the old Casio's, and the old method of handling percentages. Unfortunately newer calculators like the fx-991EX haved dumbed down the percentage operations so that it is basically *0.01 now.

Not sure if you did the video, but I guess it was just to demonstrate the long way, while in the comments of the video and your post you show the more efficient way of calculating the percentages.

In any case, thanks for sharing!
