on my 50G is there a way than when Pi is in an equation that I am
solving, than when I hit enter the pi does stay there, I hate this, if
I say 12 * 2* pi, I just get 12 * pi, I want this to stop and for it to just treat pi as 3.14
Short answer: Above the enter key, you will find an orange ->NUM. Press right-shift, then Enter. Viola, symbolic is converted to numeric.
Less short answer: There's a mode called Exact in which answers appear symbolically, and a mode called Approximate in which answers are
converted to numeric results. To toggle between these modes, press
Mode, pick the CAS menu item, and toggle the "Approx" field; or, as a shortcut, just be at the normal stack display, and HOLD the right-shift
key while pressing Enter. (A little icon in the upper part of the
display will switch between '=' and '~'.)
There's a few other modes. They are worth digging into the manuals to discover. The HP-50G, like most HPs, works differently enough from the
way its competitors do, to require some careful study in order to get
the most out of it; but that study will be well rewarded. Good luck!
