In the above calculator, there are three separate
sections. The one of the left is for simple drawings, where
you might buy a few tickets from a much larger number offered for
sale. The middle area is for still simple combinations mostly
but you can examine up to five items that must happen in a row -
such as shown there would show the chances of drawing the queen of
hearts followed by the jack of spades. The section on the
right is for what we call permutations. Actually the last
example also could use this screen. But permutations means
choosing a few items and they must be in order.
In addition to this calculator, it has its own help
section. For those new to odds calculations we suggest just
working through the examples given in the help section. That
help can show not only how to use the calculator, but also how to
approach a number of setups for odds. Why is the setup
important? To someone like me, the math is not necessarily the
hard part or complex parts of odds. What is complex is often
how to set up the math analysis. And we do beleive that our
help section here can get you started.
We do not wish though to say that this calculator
can do any setup of odds. For example, it can give a small
answer in blackjack for perhaps the odds on taking insurance or not,
but cannot give complete odds on a whole blackjack game. And
of course one should always be careful working with odds to ensure
that they double check their results and guarantee an answer
themselves before risking money or other. But all that being
said, we think that calculating odds can be fun and interesting.
Overall - Convert 2000 is a collection of Six Calculators
A computer calculator with some excellent features. It includes a
simulated paper tape readout on screen that shows calculations as you go -
and it can also print to a default printer. It also includes 10 memory locations
that are visible to help you remember which memory value is which.
Metric to English Calculator:
that includes conversions for: weight, distance, volume, temperature,
hexadecimal to ascii and decimal, and quality sigma to ppm
- Mortgage Loan Calculator:
that allows you to calculate any of the four items of: Principal
(amount of loan) , interest rate, term of loan, or payment amount by
entering the other three. An amortization schedule that also
allows save and print is included. Many options.
- Quality Calculator: Many
Handheld calculators will do statistics. This one does not. What
it does do is include many items not found on hand held calculators
including mtbf calculations, and the relationship between mtbf, mttr and
system availability. Also includes ppm to sigma calculations plus
fahrenheit to celsius conversion.
- Chinese Calendar Calculator:
This calculator is a simplistic approximation of the Chinese tradition of
naming years after animals and how it relates to our own Gregorian solar
calendar years. It is a simple approximation, and is mostly included
- Custom Calculator:
Allows 9 lines of programmable calculations. It does not include all
programmable functions, but includes many of the common ones such as
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, %, logs, natural logs,
exponentiation, and more. It does not allow parenthesis but does allow
multi-line information transfer at least in a downward direction. This
can be set up for many common small business needs. Examples included
within the calculator.
- Cellular Calculator:
This might be primarily for those in the cellular
business. It can translate cellular serial number for small or large (two
types) of serial numbers between decimal or hexadecimal. And no, it is not
just a simple overall conversion.
- Odds Calculator: Gives three different sections on the screen that can help
calculate odds for some common items. The help screen for it also provides
examples and how to set up odds - something you might find both fun and
- Hunting Calculator: Provides some basic information for speed and gravity
for items thrown or shot. As soon as an item is thrown or shot, gravity
causes it to fall. How much do you need to compensate for? If skeet
shooting at a moving target, how much to lead it?
Overall - Of course, with differences in definitions and rounding
techniques, you will need to check settings and ensure suitability of these
calculators for your own needs. However, this software can be an
exceptional help when you need it and it comes at a very low package price.
