HP Prime numerical restrictions? Message #1 Posted by Alasdair McAndrew on 16 Nov 2013, 3:32 a.m.
Is it just me, or does the HP Prime have inbuilt restrictions?
For example, the command
sum(1.0/x,x,1,1000)
returned
7.48547086054
almost instantly. All good. But the command
sum(1.0/x,x,1,10000)
returned instead
"Error: Invalid dimension"
This is annoying, unless there's some setting which will remove such errors. (I can do this sort of thing with zero problems on both the Casio ClassPad and the TI nspire.) I like many things about the HP Prime, but it keeps throwing error messages at me, or freezing, or sometimes spontaneously rebooting. There also seems to be a restriction on derivatives, as I explained in an earlier post.
Thanks!
