MAJOR RESULT DISCREPANCY; 50g vs. 41CX Message #1 Posted by Edward J Pec on 5 Mar 2007, 1:27 p.m.
I recently found this site and there is a result discrepancy
between the HP41CX (I own 2 of them; same thing for
both) and the new HP50g, namely, the numerical result
for the following (done in full floating point, maximum decimals in all attempted evaluations):
{ [3 x (5(1/9))] / 23 ^3 } + e ^2.5 then sq. root of result
In the 50g, using RPN, the result is 3.49....
In the 41CX, the result is 3.83...
Independent evaluations indicate 3.49... is correct... as
in the 50g User Guide, so what's going on ??
This can not be a rounding error, and the answer can not
be a matter of calculator opinion, so please help my insomnia and tell me what's going on !
