Re: Imaginary numbers in 33S equation mode Message #2 Posted by Mike H on 11 Nov 2004, 10:40 a.m., in response to message #1 by RB
The 33 uses the expression Z=X+Yi for complex numbers. Like you I could not use the CMPX function in an equation.
It did work when I wrote a program however.
From the learning module on Complex numbers the following example is given:
(3+2i)/(44i)
The answer is 0.125 + 0.625i.
Programming the 33S as follows
C001 LBL C
C002 RCL A
C003 Enter
C004 RCL B
C005 Enter
C006 RCL C
C007 Enter
C008 RCL D
C009 CMPLX/
Store 3 in A
Store 2 in B
Store 4 in C
Store 4 in D
R/S results
0.6250
0.1250
I am no programmer, so I am sure there are better ways to express the program, but at least will allow you to enter imaginary parts into an equation.
