Using Xeq For Evaluation - HP 35s User Manual

Scientific calculator.

If the equation is an assignment, only the right–hand side is evaluated. The
result is returned to the X–register and stored in the left–hand variable, then
the variable is viewed in the display. Essentially,
the left–hand variable.
If the equation is an equality or expression, the entire equation is evaluated
— just as it is for
Example:
Evaluating an Equation with ENTER.
Use the equation from the beginning of this chapter to find the volume of a 35–mm
diameter pipe that's 20 meters long.
