RE: HP Prime - Statistics
You are correct - Prime does not currently support four arguments to do a "between" calculations on the probability distributions. That is on the list of potential future changes however.

As to the manual, are you looking at the full manual? Or just the quick start guide? Please give detailed suggestions as to how to resolve "that it sucks". The full manual seems quite well organized to me. So understanding where you are looking or HOW you are looking would be quite helpful.

You also mention the on calculator help sucks, yet it is definitely the most comprehensive on-system help of ANY calculator out there. For this question, I press HELP, then the TREE, then SEARCH. Type NORM and then with a few clicks have found the normal distribution functions. Inside them, a single tap takes you to the related functions. So again, how were you trying to use it that you feel it is a joke? How or what should be changed to make that better? Describing your thinking in trying to find what you are looking for would be helpful.

Now if you really are concerned about making some of these calculations "faster", the immediate solution that comes to mind is to use the DEFINE function to make a user function to do it. Give it a name like NORM4, put in your function subtracting the two, and you now have it.

Another option would be to save a copy of the solve application, save the same equation, and then you can just go in there to solve it.
