This is a general calculator that features a "+ Pct" and "M+" key that adds numbers to the List Manager so you can review and edit your entries.
The "+ Pct" is used for percentage calculations for a fixed, often used percentage. Calculating sales tax is a good application for the "+ Pct" key.
See Using the "+ Pct" and "+ x%" Keys On the Math: General Calculator
