HP 50G MSLV in RPN  Darin Murphy  10252008 I have been playing around with an HP 50g and I can't seem to get the mslv to work in RPN. I am using the example from the small guide that comes with the calc. I have tried using the small tic marks and not using them. It works fine if you switch to alg mode. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thanks
Re: HP 50G MSLV in RPN  George Bailey (Bedford Falls)  10262008 If you key it in in RPN mode like this
['Sin(x)+ y','x+ Sin(y)=1'] ENTER and now invoke MSLV by [RS][NUM.SLV][6], you'll get [.510973429389 .489026570612] in level 1 of the stack. < BEWARE! Incorrect answer. See below ;) Note that the equations as well as x and y are in ' ' while keying them in, but as soon as you press ENTER after every line, the ' ' will vanish from the display.

Re: HP 50G MSLV in RPN  VPN  10262008 No comma is needed in RPN mode Re: HP 50G MSLV in RPN  George Bailey (Bedford Falls)  10262008 Quote: VPN McCarthy ;) is right of course. I get this answer now, too. I don't know how I came upon my first answer and can't even reproduce it now. EDIT: I know now what I did: I produced the first result using my 50G emulator, so I could retrieve it easily. I keyed in 'x+sin(x)=1' for the second equation. Should have double checked the result...AAARRRGGHHH! Concerning the commas in RPN: do they hurt in any way other then being more work to do?
