Using units in the HP Prime Solver ambient
Hi, folks.
I'm new here, coming here to learn about an issue with my HP Prime.
I had a HP 48S, then a 48GX. Now I've just bought a HP Prime.
However, with the 48, at the solver ambient, i used to use the equations with or without units. More than that, with any unit as desired, since compatible with the equation. The aplication solves the conversions in the backgound, tranparently.
Ex: in the equation V=S/t, inside the solver ambient, entering S in 'm', t in 'h', I could get 'S' in 'm/s', 'mph', 'kph', or 'ly/y', just putting 1_<unit> and asking for solver.
I'dnt figured out how to do this in HP Prime.
Is that possible?

I don't think the solver app supports units. It's also strange that when I type:

solve([v = s/t,s = (10_(ft)),t = (12_(s))],[v,s,t])

into the cas command line the calculator says units are not supported, but gives:

{[(5/6)_(ft*s^(-1)),10_(ft),12_(s)]}
