    The "%" function would have added another $49.99 to the cost of the iPhone.

    Multipy by 1.0tax rate. Like mine is 7.3%, so I multiply by 1.073 to find the total with tax. But yah, thats lame.

    It's actually a very simple math rule... you don't need a percent key really. Just move the decimal over two places to the left.

    To figure 18% of something, just multiply by .18

    true on the 19 but that gives you the tax, if you want the tax plus the cost together you need to multiply by 1.18 like pf said

    Still...

    It's a pretty lame calculator.

    An HP12C emulator as a built-in would rock!
