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

This program is by Eddie W. Shore and is used here by permission.

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)
