A slightly humorous question - Joseph_21sv - 03-01-2016 08:50 PM

Out of the possible logics for arithmetic execution, the ones which calculators have and have not implemented in firmware stand as follows: algebraic, RPN, tenkey/adding machine (half RPN) vs. forward Polish notation, reverse tenkey/adding machine (half FPN). But why has no known calculator implemented either of these two logics in firmware? And why has nobody seemed to care?
