HP49-HP50: list of var in an equation - Gil - 10-02-2022 10:19 PM
I have, in the stack of the calculator, for instance the following equation (all the variables are with power of 1, but their coefficient being not necessarily integers): '2.55*x1 + 19.07*b + 11*c1 - 50.333*d = k'. My question: Is there a COMMAND or an easy way to get the list of the variables in the above equation (as the calculator detect those variables when executing STEQ 30 MENU)? I checked, but could not solve this easy problem. My apologises in advance if the answer is in the manuals. Thanks for your help. Just for infornation: I try to copy a system of linear in equations from a book into the calculator. I have to detect the variables and, afterwards, the coefficients of those variables (the latter question is easily solved by setting 1 variable to 1 and the remaining ones to 0).

Try LNAME. It returns its result as an array, which can easily be converted to a list with AXL. The Advanced Users Reference shows more details about LNAME and how it differs from LVAR, which provides a different take on the variables.

Thanks, David, "your" LNAME command is the one I was looking for. By the way, is there a built-in command or an easy way to get the coefficient of Y='2.5*x + 7.5*b + 35* c' apart evaluating Y for (x=1, b and b = 0) (b=0, x and c = 0) (c=1, a and b = 0)? Regards, Gil |
