French error when solving an equation
Hey there. The oddities continue.
I was trying to solve the following equation for x: 1/sqrt(x) = 1.74 2*log((2k/d)+(18.6/(r*sqrt(x)))) When I use specific values for k, d and r, I get the correct answer. When attempting to solve it to an x=f(k,d,r) I get an error: "Impossible d'isoler, Error: Valeur Argument Incorrecte" Again, the Android app produces the same result. Why can't the Prime do that, and why the hell does it give me errors in French?

Turns out, when switching the calculator language to English, it makes a lot more sense.
The botched up the German translation quite a bit...

RE: French error when solving an equation
You can't "solve" the equation because there is no closed form solution without getting into use of the "product log" function since there is no way to isolate x without that. No other handheld calculator can do this either.
TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

I still think the localization of the calculator should be done in some collaborative open environment. Anything but English looks without any care nor love.
Maybe a revolutionary indevice capability to flag wrong translations or bugs would work too these flagged things could be sent to hp when the calculator is synced. My website: erwin.ried.cl
