New Delhi: All of us have been using physical calculators right from our childhood. Each function or button, as it is commonly called, carries a unique functionality which is quite vivid.

However, there are two such functions on the calculator that appear quite similar as they are displayed but carry a subtle difference in functionality which very few are aware of.

Yes, you got it right. The C and CE are the only two functions on a calculator that can create a bit of confusion while they are being operated.

 

Both buttons are a way to erase or clear an entry. The CE (clear entry) button clears the most recent entry while the C (clear) button will clear all input to the calculator.

So, if you are typing a long computation and make a mistake, press the CE button as it will delete just the last digit.

On the other hand, if you are willing to clear the entire computation, simply press the C button.
