Calculators HP50G Complex numbers with square roots

  1. Aug 28, 2011 #1
    Hi, I recently bought an HP50G, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to get numbers from the stack into a complex number. Could anyone help?

    For example, for 1+2i, I know I'd enter it as (1,2). But when I have something like 6^0.5+2i, I don't want to type the numbers out.


    Edit: I'm using RPN mode. I've tried a few searches and haven't come up with anything.

    I got it figured out. I needed to use HIST > ECHO to select an item from the stack.
