Abstract

Bookkeeping means keeping track of large quantities of numbers. The computer is a whiz at this kind of thing, but to use this power you must learn how BASIC stores data in variables. Let’s experiment in direct mode to give you a feel for programming with numbers and variables. Clear the computer’s memory again by typing in NEW and then pressing [RETURN]. Clear the screen by pressing [SHIFT]:[CLR/HOME]. Type:
  • A = 10

  • B = 2

  • PRINT A*B
