Neat book, i'm trying to follow the first problem:

Optimization: Area of a Triangle HP Prime:

"Let A be a point located at the vertex opposite the base of an isosceles triangle.

Point C lies on a circle cantered at A whose radius is [AB]. Find the location of C that will maximize the area

of the triangle ABC."

"The area of the triangle and the length of its base may be

calculated by pressing MENU/COPY button.

We make use of the command buttons labelled area.

We will shift the position of the point C and for each location of C,

record the resulting area."

"In this way, we may obtain a number of value pairs (base; area),

which may be stored in a table. Select the application

Statistics 2Var“ by pressing X^2 button."

"Each pair of values (base; area) is entered into the table

(by pressing Menu)." <== THIS IS THE KICKER

Everything gets completely obliterated (ie: just does NOT work) when i try to press the Menu/Copy button in order to copy the Geometry data to the Statistics 2 Var App.

I am using the latest firmware.

Can someone please solve for me the problem of getting geometry data into the statistics 2 var spreadsheet. <== Needed Solution

MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE!
