 33 Forensic?Message #1 Posted by Arnaud Amiel on 20 Feb 2004, 4:07 a.m. Would a nice owner of a shiny new 33s tell us what is in degrees DISP ALL. 9 SIN COS TAN ATAN ACOS ASIN Thanks, Arnaud

 Re: 33 Forensic?Message #2 Posted by Nenad (Croatia) on 20 Feb 2004, 8:32 a.m.,in response to message #1 by Arnaud Amiel Better: 9 SIN COS TAN ATAN ACOS ASIN 9 - EEX 6 * The answer is in ppm error (as somebody once said)

 33s Forensic Result: 8.99999986001Message #3 Posted by Paul Brogger on 20 Feb 2004, 10:48 a.m.,in response to message #1 by Arnaud Amiel Chasing guard digits doesn't further refine the value above, which is available immediately via the SHOW feature. I'd already reported this to Mike Sebastian.

Sicuro (Brazil) on 20 Feb 2004, 12:36 p.m.,in response to message #3 by Paul Brogger This means that they are using another algorithm, not only a Saturn CPU emulation on a newer CPU. There is any way to measure its speed? Try this on "Solve" (Algebrical TVM formula, please modify it where necessary): ```(1+i)^n*pv+((1-(1+i)^n)/(1-(1+i)))*pmt+fv=0 ``` This works on my HP-95LX with 16 digits precision: ```n=31,536,000 i=1/315,360,000 pv=0 pmt=-0.01 ``` calculate for fv. Some results: ```HP-95LX : 331,667.0056360354 HP-17BII: 331,661.800473 ``` Internal TVM (take same i mult. by 100): ```HP-95LX : 331,667.0066907769 HP-17BII: 331,667.006691 HP-10BII: 331,667,006691 HP-12C : 331,667,0067 ``` (Example taken from MATHEMATICS WRITTEN IN SAND by W. Kahan) Best regards, Nelson

 49g+ solver gets same as 17BIIMessage #5 Posted by John on 20 Feb 2004, 2:50 p.m.,in response to message #4 by Nelson M. Sicuro (Brazil) The 49g+ equation solver gets the same result as the 17BII solver, 331,661.800473 The 49g+ financial solver is more accurate, returning 331,667.0067.

 HP-95LX Solver precisionMessage #6 Posted by Nelson M. Sicuro (Brazil) on 20 Feb 2004, 3:27 p.m.,in response to message #5 by John I think that the HP-95LX/200LX (and other HP palmtops) solvers in the "HP Calc" program is the most accurate solver that I knof of! It uses 16 digits (I don't know how much it uses internally) and the answer is even better than the HP-49G+... BTW The 95LX "forensics" result is ```9.000000000029575 ``` Best regards, Nelson Edited: 20 Feb 2004, 3:31 p.m.

Sicuro (Brazil) 32sii Equation editor: Entered (1+i)^n*pv+((1-(1+i)^n)/(1-(1+i)))*pmt+fv as an expression, (checksum 41D6, 57.0 bytes) and solved for fv: got 331,661.800473 (Same as 17bii and 95LX solvers)
