From: Bastian Erdnuess on 30 Nov 2009 14:15 Hi, On the HP 28S is a command called FORM. Does anybody here knows it? It is used to reformat expressions. E.g. with it you can pretty easy transform 'X+Y' into 'Y+X'. I now have had a hard time trying to transform '1/(SQRT(2*pi)*EXP(X^2/2))' into '1/SQRT(2*pi)*EXP(-X^2/2)' on the HP 50g, but no chance. Does anybody know how to do this? I found the equation writer (EQW) and the algebra menu (ALG) containing beside others COLLECT and EXPAND. I also went over the fifth chapter of HP 50g's user guide ("Algebraic and arithmetic operations") but I didn't find anything useful in there. Thanks for any hint, Bastian PS: There is no point doing THIS transformation. I just want to know, how to do transformations like that in general.

You can use it pretty easily to do this sort of thing by selecting the (X^2/2) subexpresion with the arrow keys, then hitting the '+-' key. If you mean doing programaticly, I don't know.

I'm not sure, either. I think it shell mean something like "I'm aware that it exists, but I don't see how to use it to do what I want". > You can use > it pretty easily to do this sort of thing by selecting the (X^2/2) > subexpresion with the arrow keys, then hitting the '+-' key. But this changes the expression. How it is, is that in '1/(SQRT(2*pi)*EXP(X^2/2))' the EXP is in the denominator. But what I want is, to have the EXP in the nominator, just with opposite sign. When I do what you explain then the EXP is still in the denominator, but with opposite sign. That's not what I want. > If you mean doing programaticly, I don't know. No, just by hand.
