Is the Prime a superset of the HP 17bII+ ? vrrr Unregistered Posts: 4 Threads: 2 Joined: Oct 2013 10-15-2013, 09:20 PM I have a HP 17bII+ and am thinking of getting a HP Prime but only if it offers a similar SOLVER function. I have solver functions in my 17bII+ to calculate the following: Black Scholes (uses 0xL(B:1...), ABS, L(D:L...), etc.. functions) Standard Deviation Rate of Return (uses summation, SIZES, ITEM, etc.. functions) sin,cos,tan - not required in the PRIME :) Normal Prob DF - (uses the EXP, SQRT function) Normal Cumul DF and a Date function - (uses DDAYS function) Are these programs translatable into the HP Prime programming language? I've tried to copy and paste the following into the simulator (as an example): 0*L(D1:(LN(PS/PE)+(RF%/100+S^2/2)*T)/S/SQRT(T)) *L(D2:D1-S*SQRT(T))*D2*PUTV+PS*ABS(IF(D1<0;0;-1) +SIGMA(I:1:5:1:ITEM(NORM:I)*SPPV(23.16419*ABS(D1):I)) /EXP(D1^2/2))-PE/EXP(RF%*T/100)*ABS(IF(D2<0:0:-1) +SIGMA(I:1:5:1:ITEM(NORM:I)*SPPV(23.16419*ABS(D2):I)) /EXP(D2^2/2))-CALLV+0*L(PUTV:CALLV-PS+PE/EXP(RF%*T/100)) but I get a syntax errors so I dont think they are compatible. Can the Prime do everything the 17bII+ can do? If so, I would like to replace my 17bII+ with something a bit more flashier.

As of yet there is no date calculations exposed to the end user.

For example FFT (fast fourier transform) in the Prime is also present in the 50g, but not in the 48sx. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
