(17B) Random Numbers
The HP 17B series does not have a random number function. We can use the solver to generate random numbers. Random numbers between 0 to 1 are generator.
The format to use will depend on the version of HP 17B you are working with. The code used will use psuedorandom generator: r_i+1 = frac( ( π + r_i)^5 ) Classic HP 17B and HP 17BII: We can use Let and Get to generate random numbers, they are used to generate in recurring sequences. Code: R#=FP((PI+G(R#))^5) Instructions: Enter a starting seed, press (R#). For future random numbers, keep on pressing (R#). Brown and Silver HP 17BII+: We'll use the two variables. Despite the fact that Let and Get are available on the silver HP 17BII+, they cannot be used in recurring sequences. Code: R2#=FP((PI+R1#)^5) Instructions: Enter a starting seed, press (R1#). For the first random number, press (R2#). For future random numbers, press [ STO ] (R1#), then (R2#). Blog entry: https://edspi31415.blogspot.com/2019/03/...andom.html
