(HP35s) Quadratic formula
Probably someone has done it before, but...
Inspired by a HP41C program I found for the quadratic formula that uses only the 4 level stack, no INPUTs, no extra registers, I thought maybe I could do something similar with the HP35s, despite that it doesn't have the register arithmetic with the stack registers. The program uses the equivalent formula -(b/2a)±SQRT((b/2a)^2-(c/a)). The fact there is only 2 terms makes it easier. I don't think it could be done with the (-b±SQRT(b^2-4ac))/2a formula. We press a ENTER b ENTER c XEQ Q and the 2 solutions, real or complex returned in X and Y registers. No INPUTs, no extra registers, just the stack, in just 29 steps.
Code:
Q001        LBL Q
Q002        REGZ
Q003        /
Q004        RDN
Q005        X<>Y
Q006        /
Q007        2
Q008        /
Q009        +/-
Q010        ENTER
Q011        X^2
Q012        RUP
Q013        -
Q014        X>=0?
Q015        GTO Q021
Q016        +/-
Q017        SQRT
Q018        i
Q019        *
Q020        GTO Q022
Q021        SQRT
Q022        ENTER
Q023        ENTER
Q024        REGT
Q025        +
Q026        RDN
Q027        -
Q028        RUP
Q029        RTN

RE: (HP35s) Quadratic formula
I tried this examples from HP 25 Application Program Manual:

ax2 + bx + c = 0

Examples
1 . X2 + X - 6 = 0
2. 3 X2 + 2x -1 = 0
3. 2X2 - 3x + 5 = 0

Solution
1. D = 6.25
Xl = -3.00
X2 = 2.00
2. D = 0.44
Xl = -1.00
X2 = 0.33
3. D = -1.94
Xl , X2 = 0.75 ± 1.39 i

For the first case with your program: x1= -3, x2= 3; the rest INVALID DATA
The program looks nice, but some corrections have to be made. Pedro

I tried the examples you mentioned and I get the correct answers. Did you key the program correctly?

Yes I did. Only one doubt, in steps 04 and 26, RDN code I got it by pressing blue shift (right arrow) and key coordinate 1,4 (first colum, forth row) -> E, wich shows in blue RND intaed of RDN. Maybe I am confused. Please confirm. Another option is to send an emulator file. Pedro

Same for me, it works fine.

RDN stands for Register Down: R↓
RUP stands for Register Up: R↑
