# Commodore 796

The Commodore 796 is an arithmetic calculator with algebraic logic. It has 5 functions, 19 keys, and an LED (light-emitting diode) display, typical of calculators of this era. The power source is PP3 9V.
**Note:** A number of people comment on the "yellow" case of this model, but I am pretty sure these were originally beige. Over time the plastic has discoloured.
