TI-65 Programs Part I: Digital Root, Complex Number Multiplication, Dew Point

TI-65 Programs Part I:  Digital Root, Complex Number Multiplication, Dew Point

Recently working with the HP-71B and Radio Shack EC-4004, I am feeling the 1980s vibes and staying in the decade for the 1987 classic calculator Texas Instruments TI-65.   

Some background information of the TI-65 (provided by Datamath):  http://www.datamath.org/Sci/Galaxy/TI-65.htm

Did you know the TI-65 has a timer?  Click here to see a video demonstration!



This is the first part of programs for the TI-65 for this Fourth of July.

TI-65 Digital Root

Takes the digital root of an integer.  To find the digital root:

1.  Add up the number’s digits.
2.  The sum is over 10, add the digits again.
3.  Repeat step 2 until you get a single digit.

Or alternatively, use the formula dr(n) = 1 + ((n-1) mod 9) = n – 9 * intger((n-1)/9)

Input:  Enter integer, press [RST] [R/S]

Test 1:  dr(1555) = 7
Test 2:  dr(38267) = 8

TI-65 Complex Multiplication

(a + bi)*(c + di) = (r1*r2) * e^(i*(θ1 + θ2))

Where r1 ∠ θ1 is the polar form of a + bi and r2 ∠ θ2 is the polar form of c + di.

  1. Hi Eddie,

    Have you got any information about how to repair LCD of this amazing calculator?! I buy one on a Hungarian auction site (the seller said the unit is not working - I know that the battery replacement is little tricky and maybe the seller do not know that and I was right).

    So, everything is works but on the LCD some annunciator is not shows. It is possible to fix it?!

  2. Another little thing: Maybe this is the slowest calculator on the world?!
