While we're at it:

Quote:"Herman the moonshiner makes a weekly delivery to the Hogs Haven Pub. Normally it takes 1 hour, 27 minutes, and 52 seconds to go from his still to Possum Flats and 2 hours, 3 minutes, and 17 seconds from there to Hogs Haven. How long does the trip take?"

Ah, this sounds familiar. A short story that introduces a problem which is then solved by means of your new calculator. May this be a quote from the HP-25 manual? Or from the 67's?

You won't believe it, but this is the introduction to the hour, minute, second arithmetics program for the TI SR–56 (!). Obviously TI liked the HP style so much that they decided to do something similar in their own Applications Library manual. ;-)
