basic math function don't work with base # mode on 50g

basic math functions like */+- don't work, they just beep at you. I think on the 35s they do work, and it's nice. could that basic functionality be put into the 50g which is a higher-end calculator with a firmware update?

 

thank you.

But they DO work on the 50g.  The following examples assume that you're in hex mode.

 

In RPN mode, #12 ENTER #34 * yields #3A8h (which means 3A8 in hex), which is the correct result.

 

In Algebraic mode, #12*#34 yields the same result.

 

You don't have to type the "h" after hex numbers if the 50g is already in hex mode (see the mode displayed in the status area). The space between the "#" and the number is optional.

 

Hope that helps!
