Calculators Hp 50g expand and simplify

  1. Oct 5, 2009 #1
    I remember setting my calculator so it would automatically use the expand function or simplify fractions for me in RPN mode.Since I did a reset I don't know how to put that function on again.

    For example if I was to put 1 enter 3 divided, I would get 1/3 then if I were to multiply by 2 the calculator would give this 1/3*2

    I want the calculator to automatically simplify the fraction to 2/3. This is done automatically in algebraic mode how can I do this with rpn.

    Hp calculators are very confusing.

    Solving it is very easy. Press MODE, then press CAS and uncheck "Approx". I know it's been 8 years, but maybe someone could be interested.
