Full Version: My 10 Step Program

As a confirmed calcaholic, I've been trying to limit myself to just these, in this order:

1. HP LED - any, all, multiples (successful!)
2. HP LCD - the "more interesting ones" (RPN, RPL - partially successful!)
3. Other LED programmables - but not TI (see below)
4. Other LED scientifics - particularly, but not exclusively, RPN
5. Other interesting LEDs (like Heath 1401 - 3x of those!)
6. TI programmables (58, 59...)

Had to share my latest find - in category 3 - a PERFECT, AS NEW Litronix 2290 LED Programmable! This beauty has a large LED display, with "digit for DP" like the HP Classics, square root (divide/+ !!), one memory - and - 10 KEYSTROKE PROGRAMMABILITY!! Almost useless! But SO beautiful!!!

I wondered how Victor T. Toth implemented the Gamma function with this.

At least you can calculate the amount of time it takes for an object to fall from a given height:
Code:
C/ON L += += ÷ RM ÷ += S

Nice find. Congratulations!
I read Victor's page and that is what caused me to have an auction site search active!

Victor's program makes use of that "hidden" square root feature (divide followed by +=), nice.

Strangely Victor's text answer of 4.67 seconds does not agree with the program or the equation - which yield 4.52 seconds ;-)

I assume he made a typo and used $$9.18\frac{m}{s^2}$$ instead of $$9.81\frac{m}{s^2}$$ for the gravitational acceleration g.

10 steps? Wow! The calculator sure does look nice.

Meanwhile he fixed it.
