1000/2 is one very easy way. But the real answer is, get a new calculator! You can get a simple calculator as cheap as a buck (at a Dollar Tree or someplace similar). Why waste your time fooling around with one with broken keys?

600/1.2 800/1.6 1200/2.4 1800/3.6 2400/4.8 ......

6000/12, 7000/14, 8000/16, 9000/18 and so on just skip numbers with 5. Also

10/.02 , 1/.002 , .1/.0002 and so on

You also could enter 10, divide.

Then 2, percent.

Then divide.

With Daniel O.'s four, that makes five.

You could enter 1000/2 which equals 500

2000/4 = 500

3000/6 = 500

4000/8 = 500

Can you find one more?

One quick way could be to multiply 100 by 5. Or you could multiply 50 by 10. What other ways could you think of?
