implicit multiplication fails
Hi
CAS MODE: 3x > 3*x ok x[]8 > x8 ok [+/] 8x > 8*x ok x*[+/] 8x> 8*x ok but x [+/] 8 > Syntax Error x [+/] 8 > x*(8) or 8*x ok simulated prime (PC COMPUTER SOFTWARE): the [] key on a keypad placed [+/], I think we should put [] x [+/] 8 > Syntax Error [] > ANS ... you agree?

RE: implicit multiplication fails
The convention of putting a constant to the left side of its literal multiplicand seems to work:
(I think I've read somewhere that implicit multiplication is not completely supported, though) [CAS] 8x => 8*x [+/]8x => 8*x

RE: implicit multiplication fails
Hello,
Implicit multiplication is (partially) there to please some math teachers so that they can type 3A or something like that. However, using it should be Highly discouraged as it is a sure recepie for disaster. Cyrille Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
