HP Solve - Tom - 10-02-2000

How does HP Solve works in HP 32SII?
Thanks


Meaning .... - Joe Panico - 10-02-2000

Tom,
Do you mean it's internal code, relative performance, it's general mechanics, or how the user sets-up their own examples. I have some idea about the latter two.

I meant how to operate it.


All in the manual - Joe Panico - 10-03-2000

Tom,
The details are in the owners manual. If you do not own a manual, I have several. (Children, backpacks, high school, HP32SII don't mix. Each repair included a manual). If you have a manual but still have some trouble, email me directly. I'll try to help.

I don't really have a manual, actually I don't have this calculator. I have seen this calculator at HP website. They said that it can be used to solve for any variables, I what to know to use this feature and decide if I am going to buy this calculator or not. Another than this, I have to check if it could be used in exaninations in secondary schools in Hong Kong.
Thanks


It's good, but others are better - Joe Panico - 10-05-2000

Tom,
The solver in the 32 is useful, but the solvers in other HP's are better. Some problems will error in a 32, for example, any expression that includes a division by one of the variables. I believe this is due to the solving technique. Entering the equation is also somewhat more work. So, check out the other models if you plan to use an solver regularly.
