Overview

Hi, this is one of my programs for the Scientific Calculator HP-35s in mode RPN.

Function:
f(X)=X^3+4*X^2+X-6
derivative:
f'(X)=3*X^2+8*X+1
in X=3
The answer is:
f'(X=3)=52

For the program, uses two labels.
LBL D: Derivative in a point
LBL F: Function f(X)

Find the derivative of X^3+4*X^2+X-6 in X=3 whit the HP-35s.
XEQ D [ENTER]
A? 3 [R/S]
