Taking a derivative at a point HP 50g
I am new to using the HP 50g and I am curious about its differentiation ability.
I know how to use the calculator to take the derivative of functions but I would like to know if there is an easy way to do it at a point. For example, how could I differentiate x*sin(x) at x = 0?
