Bug or feature?



#6

HP49g+ v1.22

I have a function like this:

<< -> X 'FLOOR(pi/ASIN(1/X-1)))' >>

f(2) should be 2, but the calc says its 1.

Whats wrong here?

I'm probably badly misinterpreting something, but Google's calculator says:

       pi / arcsin((1 / 2) - 1) = -6

Oops

try

<< -> X 'FLOOR(pi/ASIN(1/(x-1)))' >>

Hmmm... Just a guess, but the calculator might compute pi/asin(1) as 1.99999999999 or so. Check what it returns when you omit the floor command.
