Hello,

I am new to this list, but I am an enthusiastic HP Prime user and I hope that they iron out all the early problems. I found two problems:

1. In Home mode, enter: 1.2+0i

Then press a b/c -> this cycles between 1.2, 6/5, and 1+(1+i)/5.

Type or conversion problem between complex and real?

2. In CAS mode, start by entering: ifactor(2ˆ101+1003).

Then enter: ifactor((2ˆ101+1001)*(largest factor of 2ˆ101+1003))

where "(largest factor of 2ˆ101+1003)" is replaced by its meaning.

This returns a strange result:

-1*-177509...24691

The latter is the value of (2ˆ101+1001)*(largest factor of 2ˆ1001+1003).
