This evaluates to 14, not 38. Changing the expression to (8 + 2) * (16 ÷ 4) - 2 yields 38. Or have I missed something? ▼ Les Bell Unregistered Posts: 540 Threads: 22 Joined: Jan 2005 10-08-2007, 01:54 AM Quote: Changing the expression to (8 + 2) * (16 ÷ 4) - 2 yields 38. Or change the keystroke sequence to: 8 [Enter] 2 [Enter] 16 [Enter] 4 [÷] [x] [+] 2 [-] which would reflect the expression as written.

In fact the 48 series, 49 series, 50g, 33s, and 35s does this. Just make sure x is not a negative integer." The 48 series has only the factorial (!) function, and it does not accept complex arguments. And even in the later machines, the "!" function doesn't accept complex arguments; on my HP49G+ and HP50G, it's the "gamma" function that does. ▼ Eddie W.

(Keep it coming) As far as the factorial section, I changed it say "it can accept all real numbers" and nothing else.

Concerning the reciprocal key, it divides the number into 1, not by 1. Also, you may want to mention that if there is a command line present, the action will be performed on it (rather than on level 1). Best regards, Hal
