Solving an equation on the HP50G (as compared to the Prime)
Hello,
Long time HP50G user, but started using the Prime a couple of months ago  and I find that I quite like it! Anyways, on page 613 of the HP50G User's Guide there is an example of an equation to be solved: exp(x)  sin((pi*x)/3) = 0 The guide uses the Numerical Solver to solve this equation, and provides 4.5006E2 as an example solution  as also found on the HP50G. This however, does not seem to be a correct solution to the equation, for when it is substituted for x on the left side of the equation, we don't get 0. However, when solved on the Prime, with an initial guess of 1, an initial (correct) solution of {−3.04544793088} is obtained. Any ideas on how to solve this on the HP50G? Thanks!!!!
