 Pro I am the definite winner of this debate, you can try to disprove me if you have the guts.Report this Argument Con You're supposed to press equals, 'enter' is only very rarely on a speicfic few calculators that have this in place of the equals sign.Report this Argument Pro That's not true, every single Texas Instruments graphing calculator has "ENTER" instead of "EQUALS". And the ones that have an equal sign instead of enter, an equal sign is in exactly the same place and has the same exact function.Report this Argument Con Evidence of calculators (all) having no enter sign and of Pro's plagiarism are coming up. Additionally, the resolution states nothing of Texas. On top of this, Pro has yet to prove that there even exists a calculator with an enter button let alone that the majority have them.Evidence:Report this Argument Pro First off, I never plagiarized we just happened to say the same thing. I only mentioned Texas to disprove your statement where you stated that "very few calculators have an enter symbol". I'm not sure how to upload images on here so here's a link to a picture of a calculator with an enter sign. http://imgur.com...Report this Argument Con The resolution says 'a calculator' this means that any random calculator is being picked for it. If the majority have equals, not enter, for the function that Pro is stating, then the safest and most arguably plausible calculator to be analyzed for the resolution, is a non-graphing one (Pro supplied a very unusual graphing calculator which is definitely not the norm). Thus, based on objective probability and evidence supplied the resolution holds untrue as it is in fact 'equals' which should be pressed and not enter.It was a pleasure debating with Pro and I wish him better luck next time.

I'm confused, why do ALL calculators have to have "ENTER" on the button?

Cheap and common calculators with just an equal sign don't tell you what the = button is called.

My scientific calculator has the word ANS (short for Answer) above the button with an equal sign. Does that mean the Answer button is not an Equals button?

There are different ways to say the same thing e.g. if I have pressed subtract I have pressed take away. Likewise if I pressed answer I have pressed enter.
