9.System Flags
This appendix lists the hp49g+/hp48gII system flags. You can set, clear, and test all flags, although certain flags
are used for specific purposes by the CAS and should not be altered. The default state of the flags is clear —
except for flags –17, –27, –34, –90, –95 and –128 and the Binary Integer Math flags (flags

Clear: Symbolic commands return a result representing all possible solutions.
Set: Symbolic commands return only the principal solution.
Symbolic Constants.
2
Clear: Symbolic constants (e, i, , MAXR, and MINR) retain their symbolic form
when evaluated, unless the Numerical Results flag
Set: Symbolic constants evaluate to numbers, regardless of the state of the

Clear: Functions with symbolic arguments, including symbolic constants, evaluate
to symbolic results.
