|Help on HP 35s Program|
Message #1 Posted by Kryxena on 17 July 2012, 3:36 a.m.
Hi all, I'm obviously new here, and I need help! My husband has recently purchased an HP 35s for his work as a steel detailer, and he and his boss are beyond frustrated with the thing because they can't get two lines on two programs to enter properly. I've spent hours myself looking through the manual and the Internet, and can't seem to find any answers.
The lines don't seem all that complicated, and they are just inverse of each other. They are modeled on the same lines from programs on other HP calculators. We're really hoping we can get the 35s to cooperate as well. Any help from you experts would be so appreciated!
The first program giving them fits is a Rights - R/S program, which should read out slope, x><y reads out bevel deg. stored in D. One line is not entering correctly, and it looks like this: y,x->Or (read a right pointing arrow at -> and Theta at O). How do we enter the arrow and r?
Like I said, the other program is similar. It's a slope program, that reads out rise, x<>y reads out base. The line they can't figure out is Or->y,x (again, read Theta for O and right arrow for ->).
Again, thank you so very much for any help you can offer. And I apologize for dropping by unexpectedly!
