RE: Summation on HP 42S
(09-25-2018 01:59 PM)Frido Bohn Wrote:  Write a program that multiplies natural numbers from 1 to 1000 (factorial) and overcomes the range limit of the HP42S. (The decimal approximation is a fully acceptable result.)

Simple. Add the (base 10) logs of 1...1000. The integer part of the sum is the tens exponent, 10^(fractional part) is the mantissa.

Code:
01 LBL "FCT" 02 0 03 LBL 01 04 RCL ST Y 05 LOG 06 + 07 DSE ST Y 08 GTO 01 09 IP 10 LASTX 11 FP 12 10^x 13 END

On Free42 (with 34 digit accuracy) this yields

2567
4,02387260077

So the result is 4,02387260077 E+2567.
