French error when solving an equation - towe - 12-03-2015 09:04 AM
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? RE: French error when solving an equation - towe - 12-03-2015 09:11 AM
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 - Tim Wessman - 12-03-2015 03:04 PM
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. RE: French error when solving an equation - eried - 12-03-2015 03:22 PM
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 in-device capability to flag wrong translations or bugs would work too these flagged things could be sent to hp when the calculator is synced.
