Bravo. Looks just like my HP-35 (the HC of its kind), except you can see 
all four registers.

The "y^x" is relatively modern, in that if you want to get "three squared", 
you would normally key in"3, enter, 2". The HP-35 had "x^y". You had to 
think about it, or, as I always did, switch x and y.

A stack four high can solve any algebraic equation of any complexity 
without having to store any intermediate results. I think you can do it in three.
