Suggestion for a challenge
General discussion

I would like to make the following suggestion for a challenge:
Create a fully functional calculator (8digit, basic calculator, not scientific) but do all the calculations by hand...meaning that if the user wants 356 * 8...the program should multiply 8*6 then 8*5+4 then 8*3+4. Just like you would do it if you had to multiply with pencil and paper. This would require addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and as an added challenge, negative numbers.

Not 8digit but how about BQJ7100 ?
And I know another calculator KWR934 by Alex_2000 which is listed in an article "Small Basic Program Gallery" of Small Basic Blog.
Or you mean your challenge need hand write recognition?

I noticed that my program Combination(52C4) announced in thread "Calculate with Big Numbers in Small Basic" has similar logic for this challenge. This program has Mul(), Div(), Minus() subroutines. I'd like to modify these subroutines to get answer of this challenge.
