RE: Little explorations with the HP calculators
So, yesterday I was trying to find an approximation of the curve on my own. At the end, since I know how I constructed the triangle, I observed the following: http://i.imgur.com/X77UzuM.jpg
Then, since the solution to the quadratic formula was not so compact, I compared the result to the ones of DavidM, in the range 253825, and they are incredibly fitting! I wonder how DavidM was able to get that formula. I tried to use the "fit formula" on the hp 50g but many options gave errors since the X was negative and the fit is done with logarithms. Anyway I suppose it was a power fit with the X moved in a positive domain. so 400 is actually 0 or so. I did the same for the comparison. for newcomers: for this I made the equations with EQW, saved them in a list, used "0 \>GROB" on the stack, moved the picture file on the pc, used "grob2bmp b l original_pic.hp output.bmp" on the command prompt (for grob2bmp see hpcalc.org ) . Then this list has to be stored in the variable 'EQ' to plot more than one equation at time. The curves are almost the same. Neat! So, implementing now if I don't get interrupted. Wikis are great, Contribute :)
