HP50g Syntax Question  Daniel Greenidge  03282012 Hello, I'm trying to plot a basic sine curve with the HP50g (which it does very well). However, I'm running into some trouble when I try to change the tic marks on the xaxis to appear at intervals of Pi/2. Here is my procedure:
1. LSHIFT 2D/3D It then throws up a "Bad Argument Type" error.
Any help would be appreciated.
Re: HP50g Syntax Question  Luiz C. Vieira (Brazil)  03282012 HI. The correct expression for Pi would be PI (all uppercase letters). Also, check if approximate mode is active. Cheers.

Re: HP50g Syntax Question  Daniel Greenidge  03282012 Hello Luiz, Approximate mode is active, and I tried both "PI" and the symbol pi (LSHIFT SPC). Still no luck. Thank you for your help though!
Best Regards, Re: HP50g Syntax Question  Kiyoshi Akima  03282012 After putting in the expression 'pi/2' (using the Greek character ALPHA LSHIFT SPC), press rightarrow to get past the closing quote and press EVAL before entering the expression.
Re: HP50g Syntax Question  Crawl  03282012 Another way to do it is Pi 2 / >NUM
