"Exercises" HP Prime Book
Neat book, i'm trying to follow the first problem:

Optimization: Area of a Triangle HP Prime:

"Let A be a point located at the vertex opposite the base of an isosceles triangle.
Point C lies on a circle cantered at A whose radius is [AB]. Find the location of C that will maximize the area
of the triangle ABC."

"The area of the triangle and the length of its base may be
We make use of the command buttons labelled area.
We will shift the position of the point C and for each location of C,
record the resulting area."

"In this way, we may obtain a number of value pairs (base; area),
which may be stored in a table. Select the application
Statistics 2Varâ€œ by pressing X^2 button."

"Each pair of values (base; area) is entered into the table
(by pressing Menu)." <== THIS IS THE KICKER

Everything gets completely obliterated (ie: just does NOT work) when i try to press the Menu/Copy button in order to copy the Geometry data to the Statistics 2 Var App.

I am using the latest firmware.

Can someone please solve for me the problem of getting geometry data into the statistics 2 var spreadsheet. <== Needed Solution
