    Question POLL: Using a Calculator - Formula Input Preference

    Hi there,

    I was wondering what are peoples' preference for the 'type of input' when using a calculator?

    The choices are:

    1. Standard/Classic Algebraic

    Like the Windows calculator and calculators from the 80's. For example, to enter:

    sin(5) =

    you press

    5 [sin] [=]

    2. Modern Algebraic

    Like all modern algebraic calculators. To enter:

    sin(5) =

    you press:

    [sin] 5 [=]

    3. RPN

    Reverse Polish Notation.
