Syntax error... or am I doing something wrong?
I don't seem to be able to enter a number containing fractions in polar coordinates.
Something as simple as 1/2v50 (v would be the angle symbol). raises a syntax error. I've tried with different combination of parenthesis... but it still get a syntax error. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

I suppose this happens in the HOME, in the CAS mode does work fine.
Best, Aries ;)

Have you tried using the [Shift][X] (the multiply key), for the angle symbol?
1/(2∡50) ==> Result(angle mode). Dale

RE: Syntax error... or am I doing something wrong?
When the polar value is completely represented, in the two examples you provided, they did work in [Home] r10077. Copy/paste separates the angle parameter, and makes it look like:
1/2 ∡90, and 10^2 ∡90; instead of 1/(2∡90), and 10^(2∡90). That's probably not the issue, but the examples paste into the command line separating the angle, which, coincidentally, DOES cause a syntax error. If the polar value is enclosed in parentheses, (not strictly required), there should be no issue (I hope!).

When you start getting even more complicated things, how does the angle symbol behave in terms of order of operations? TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

Hi!:
See, the attached images. You needed configure, in HOME ... Degrees a+bi or (a,b) ... is same Then, write ... (1/2,50) ... With Shift and * X (angle symbol), then ...

RE: Syntax error... or am I doing something wrong?
In cas something like
1<pi returns 1+1.0780...E14. 1<(pi/2) returns 5.3903...E15+i I am surprised to see these results in the cas. I always thought that the cas would treat everything symbolically so that pi would be recognized. Is there an explanation for these results and/or would it be a problem to catch such special cases?

Hi!, leprechaum:
With complex (a+bi), or (a,b) and in, degrees (but, not CAS) ... (1,PI) = 1+PI*i (1,PI/2) = 1+PI/2*i See, the left image ... In Polar, CAS and degrees. See, the other image ... Note: This is checked with Wolfram Alpha, too. Kind Regards. informach
