Hi Mike, This looks like a question for a HP-4?

Just returns the question with no answer. > The answer should be x = -Sqrt(2) or x = sqrt(2). Mathematica and my HP-48GX agree here to 11 decimal places -- there are 4 roots +/-Sqrt[2] and +/-I * Sqrt[2]. > The example works in RPN, but I use both environments > depending what I am doing. It worked before the upgrade. Maybe you need to try upgrading your ROM again? > Am I missing something here! Mathematica by the looks of things ... Regards, Dave.
