Answer in terms of PI
Greetings,
With my HP 50G I was able to have my results come back in terms of PI. For instance instead of the answer for the arcsin of 1 being 1.57079632679, the answer is converted to 1/2*pi. Does anyone know how to do this with the HP Prime? Thanks  Cheers!

RE: Answer in terms of PI
If you have the most recent firmware it is as easy as pressing the [a b/c] key. There is also a command called QPI which does the same thing. For older firmware you may want to look at the QPI program linked in my signature

Thanks Han.
My HP Prime has neither the QPI command nor converts to PI using the [a b/c] key. What is the best way to convert to the latest firmware? Cheers!

And if there is a new firmware avialable to download, it will prompt you to download that as well. Then plug in your calculator, and right click on the calculator's name within the conn. kit and select to update the firmware. Graph 3D  QPI  SolveSys

Help,
The Connectivity Kit was downloaded. I connected the HP Prime to the computer. I ran the Updater.exe and nothing happened on the HP Prime calculator screen. Can anyone help me? Cheers!

Instead of having an "approximate" or "exact" mode like the 50g, when you want exact calculations and symolic stuff.... press CAS and do it there. Think of it like your symbolic calcualtion area. asin(1) returns 1/2*pi like you want TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.
