RE: WP 34S binomial bug?
I did a complete "Electronic" search of my up-to-date personalilzed WP-34s PDF manual version 3.3 and discovered that NOWHERE does the manual define the upper bound statistical/probability functions like "Binomu". It describes all of the other probability functions like "Bionom", "Binomp", "Binom-1", and even shows the mathematical formula for each of them, but completely ignores "Binomu" the "Binomial Upper Bound" calculation, what it does, and how it is computed. I would think that this function should be explained in the manual like all of the others? The same omission occurs in the Cauch, Expon, F, LogNrm, Logis, Norml, Poiss, Pois╬╗, and t probability functions. Perhaps to those who use statistical/probability functions every day, this "upper bound" stuff is obvious/boring, but to me it was not. Does anyone have an explanation as to why the "probabilityu" definitions/formulas were omitted from the manual? I would think that if it is important enough to put in the CALCULATOR, it would also be worth mentioning in the MANUAL. If there is a lot of similarity between the upper bound calculations among the variety of probability functions then perhaps it would only need to be defined for one of these functions with a reference (see Binom), but I found NOTHING about any of the upper bound calculations ANYWHERE in the manual. I don't want this so sound like a complaint, just a helpful suggestion as to how the manual could be improved in the future.
