The relation between a SR-40 and the TI-55 could easily be found with the Business Analyst and The MBA. Both the TI-55 and The MBA use a 12-digit LED-stick and a single-chip design and the mechanical ON/OFF slider.
The MBA gave you advanced financial and statistical functions and targeted the market above the Business Analyst. The brown housing gave the calculator a very exclusive note.
