HP Prime 'where' function


Is there a 'where' function key ( | ) in HP Prime, so that i can do for example:


f(3) | k=4



IMHO, 4*3^2 = 36.



Thank you joker, but as i write this was only an EXAMPLE.


Without a Prime, I'd simply define that function being f(x, k) and calculate f(3, 4). What's wrong with that approach?



Choose the 3rd template in the top row after pressing the template button.

Is there also a solution without the template? (like in HP 50g RS TOOL)


As far as I know, no!


What a pity!


What a pity!

It's a pity that "|" requires TWO keystrokes (or, to be precise, one keystroke and one tap)? The only way to reduce that would be to put it on a primary key, losing whatever is on that key now.


Try the substitute command (on the CAS/Algebra menu):

subst(f(3), k=4)


An ideal place for the "|"-sign would be SHIFT 6.


An ideal place for the "|"-sign would be SHIFT 6.

That would require three strokes (shift, 6, |). Its current location only requires two (template, |).

Hey, I just noticed that both the 50g and Prime require exactly the same finger travel to press "|". On the 50g, the distance between the right-shift key and the TOOL key is 3 inches (7.5 cm), and on the Prime, the distance between the template key and the "|" on the screen is exactly the same. Same number of presses, and same finger travel. Hmmm.
