Solve can be used in two different ways. On the one hand it can solve an equation from the list in EQN mode. On the other hand it can be used for solving a function previously programmed by the user. In both cases Solve has to know which equation/program to solve. In EQN mode this is done by simply selecting the appropriate equation from the list. Otherwise, i.e. in regular RPN mode, you tell Solve which program to solve by means of the FN= command (yellowshifted R/S key). If such a program has not been stated before, the 35s of course does not know what function to solve, and so it asks you ("SELECT FN"). Example: Solve the equation x² – 5 = 0 Code: A001 LBL A That's all. Dieter
