where X is distance, V is initial velocity, T is time, and A is acceleration. This is actually two equations, Y = X and Y = V T + (AT ) / 2. Since this equation is quadratic for T, there can be both a positive and a negative solution.
Page 95
5. Move the cursor near the positive (right-side) intersection. This cursor value will be an initial guess for T. Press until the cursor is at the intersection. The two points of intersection show that there are two solutions for this equation. However, only positive values for X make sense, so we want to find the solution for the intersection on the right side of the y-axis.
Using variables in equations You can use any of the real variable names, A to Z and θ. Do not use variable names defined for other types, such as M1 (a matrix variable). Home variables All home variables (other than those for aplet settings, like Xmin and Ytick) are global, which means they are shared throughout the different aplets of the calculator.

Press to move to the next data point and display information about it. To connect the data points as they are plotted, checkmark CONNECT in the second page of the Plot Setup.
Relative Error The relative error is a measure of the error between predicted values and actual values based on the specified Fit. A smaller number means a better fit. The relative error is stored in a variable named RELERR. The relative error provides a measure of fit accuracy for all fits, and it does depend on the Fit model you have chosen.
For instance, the data set (1,1), (3,9), (4,16), (2,4) would be plotted and traced in the order (1,1), (2,4), (3,9), (4,16). Trouble-shooting a plot If you have problems plotting, check that you have the following: • The correct menu label on (Numeric view).

flow diagram shows lease payments at the beginning of each period. Capitalized value of lease The following cash flow diagram shows deposits into an account at the end of each period. As these cash-flow diagrams imply, there are five TVM variables: The total number of compounding periods or payments.
The periodic payment amount. The payments are the same amount each period and the TVM calculation assumes that no payments are skipped. Payments can occur at the beginning or the end of each compounding period -- an option you control by setting the Payment mode to Beg or End.
Page 151
Example 1 - Loan calculations Suppose you finance the purchase of a car with a 5-year loan at 5.5% annual interest, compounded monthly. The purchase price of the car is $19,500, and the down payment is $3,000. What are the required monthly payments? What is the largest loan you can afford if your maximum monthly payment is $300? Assume that the payments start at the end of the first period.
Page 152
Example 2 - Mortgage with balloon payment Suppose you have taken out a 30-year, $150,000 house mortgage at 6.5% annual interest. You expect to sell the house in 10 years, repaying the loan in a balloon payment. Find the size of the balloon payment, the value of the mortgage after 10 years of payment.
Calculating Amortizations Amortization calculations, which also use the TVM variables, determine the amounts applied towards principal and interest in a payment or series of payments. To calculate amortizations: 1. Start the Finance Solver as indicated at the beginning of this section. 2.
Page 154
3. Press the soft menu key to amortize the new batch of payments. Repeat steps 1 through 3 as often as needed. Example 4 - Amortization for home mortgage For the results of Example 3, show the amortization of the next 10 years of the mortgage loan.

Extending aplets Aplets are the application environments where you explore different classes of mathematical operations. You can extend the capability of the HP 40gs in the following ways: • Create new aplets, based on existing aplets, with specific configurations such as angle measure, graphical or tabular settings, and annotations.
Page 394
1. Open the Solve aplet and save it under the new name. Solve T R I A N G L E S 2. Enter the four formulas: θ θ θ 3. Decide whether you want the aplet to operate in Degrees, Radians, or Grads.
Using a customized aplet To use the “Triangles” aplet, simply select the appropriate formula, change to the Numeric view and solve for the missing variable. Find the length of a ladder leaning against a vertical wall if it forms an angle of 35 with the horizontal and extends 5 metres up the wall.
A convenient way to distribute or share problems in class and to turn in homework is to transmit (copy) aplets directly from one HP 40gs to another. This can take place via a suitable cable. ( You can use a serial cable with a 4-pin mini-USB connector, which plugs into the RS232 port on the calculator.
Page 397
To transmit 1. Connect the PC or aplet disk drive to the calculator by an appropriate cable. an aplet 2. Sending calculator: Open the Library, highlight the aplet to send, and press – menu appears with the following SEND TO options: = to send via the USB port HP39/40 (USB)
If you are using the PC Connectivity Kit to download aplets from a PC, you will see a list of aplets in the PC’s current directory. Check as many items as you would like to receive. Sorting items in the aplet library menu list Once you have entered information into an aplet, you have defined a new version of an aplet.
Reference information Glossary aplet A small application, limited to one topic. The built-in aplet types are Function, Parametric, Polar, Sequence, Solve, Statistics, Inference, Finance, Trig Explorer, Quad Explorer, Linear Explorer and Triangle Solve. An aplet can be filled with the data and solutions for a specific problem.
