Error in wikipedia article on HP-35s (Solver)



#8

wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_35s says "Equation solver (a feature first seen on the HP-34C)". While it is true that HP-34C was the first with RPN Solve, what was the first calculator with algebraic ALG EQN Solver?

Karl Schneider's article http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/hpmuseum/articles.cgi?read=556 does not give the exact answer, what model was the first with EQN Solver? HP-17B?


#9

HP-18C


#10

Thomas, you seem to be right according to http://www.hpmuseum.org/hp18c.htm#solver .


#11

Fixed!

That's the beauty of Wikipedia: we can fix errors like this if we find them and, especially, if we can include references backing up our changes.

I generally won't waste my time with that abortion of a project


#13

You're referring to the 35s and not Wikipedia, right?


#14

No, wiki. If you write something, it just gets scribbled off and replaced by garbage. And it takes time. I'd rather generally get paid for using my real expertise :-)
