RE: Calculate manually with RPN calculator
An excerpt from REVIEWS AND DESCRIPTIONS OF TABLES AND BOOKS, 23 [12.00]  HP ADVANCED PRODUCTS DIVISION, HP45 Applications Book, pg. 380
"For two reasons this book will have a cursory interest to readers outside its intended audience of users of HPseries calculators. First, keystroke sequences and examples are listed alphabetically for more than twohundred purposes, including applications from algebra, geometry, statistics and numerical methods, among other areas. With a minimal understanding of the Polish logic of HPseries calculators, most of these sequences can easily be converted to use on other scientific calculators. Secondly and primarily, these sequences are of interest more for their nature than for their specific solution. For they illustrate particularly graphically the recent innovations and inherent limitations of nonprogrammable calculators. To illustrate the advances in calculator capacities, they include directions for such calculations as Bessel and Gamma functions, multiple linear regression,and GaussLegendre quadrature, and readily suggest other potential extensions of handcalculator usage. At the same time, even in their most efficient form the most interesting of these routines require so many keystrokes as to be impractical in real use and to discourage efforts to create counterparts for unlisted topics. The longest sequence in the book, for threevariable linear regression, requires 155 + 32n keystrokes to process n 3tuples of data, a number so large as practically to insure key misstroking. C. MCMANUS" BEST! SlideRule
