automatic multiplication in solve area when using 2 letter terms - rwenske - 09-06-2022 07:13 PM
Hello all, first at all I'm German, so sorry, if my english is not absolutely perfect (but understandable, hopefully). I've got the following problems: In the SOLVE area of my HP Prime G2 I want to enter for example the formula: EKR = EBT/EK*100 (just an example, could be other letters) What makes me mad is, that it works properly in the windows emulator for HP Prime, but not with my calculator :-(. Indeed it changes the formula automatically to: E*K*R = E*B*T/EK*100 But it worked correctly before, but does not do it know. What can I do that it accept EKR (or any other combination) as a term, but not as a multiplication? Thank you for your help in advance.

Try creating and storing a number in the multi-letter variables *before* entering the variables in the solver equation editor. For example, from Home perform: 0 Sto> EKR 0 Sto> EBT 0 Sto> EK Then enter the equation. There may be a more elegant way that someone else could suggest.
