Sum Function (self-contained) for the HP-35s

##
Overview

This is a self-contained (one label) program to evalulate:

B
SIGMA f(X) = S
X = A

The sum is stored in the variable S.

To find the sum, enter A then B on the stack and execute the appropriate label (I have it under label W).

A B XEQ W ENTER

To change or load the function, hit GTO W017. This line is where the function is stored (as an equation). X must be the dependent variable of the function. This program is made to run in RPN Mode.

Example:

10
SIGMA 1/X = S
X = 1

Load the function:

GTO W017

RS PRGM (enter program mode)

(left or right arrow to edit the equation)

If necessary, clear the equation and type 1 ÷ RCL X or INV RCL X, then press ENTER

RS PRGM (leave program mode)

Calculate the sum:

1 ENTER 10 XEQ W ENTER (or XEQ W001 ENTER)

Result:

S = 2.928968 (FIX 6)
