Aplets (E-lessons)
Aplets are the application environments where you
explore different classes of mathematical operations. You
select the aplet that you want to work with.
Aplets come from a variety of sources:
• Built-in the hp 39g+ (initial purchase).
• Aplets created by saving existing aplets, which have
been modified, with specific configurations. See
“Creating new aplets based on existing aplets” on
page 17-1.
• Downloaded from HP’s Calculators web site.
Page: 22
Getting started 1-13
• Copied from another calculator.
Aplets are stored in the Aplet
library. See “Aplet library”
on page 1-16 for further
information.
You can modify
configuration settings for the graphical, tabular, and
symbolic views of the aplets in the following table. See
“Aplet view configuration” on page 1-18 for further
information.
In addition to these aplets, which can be used in a variety
of applications, the hp 39g+ is supplied with two
teaching aplets: Quad Explorer and Trig Explorer. You
cannot modify configuration settings for these aplets.

A great many more teaching aplets can be found at HP’s
web site and other web sites created by educators,
together with accompanying documentation, often with
student work sheets. These can be downloaded free of
charge and transferred to the hp 39g+ using the
separately supplied Connectivity Kit.
Quad Explorer
aplet
The Quad Explorer aplet is used to investigate the
behaviour of as the values of a, h and
v change, both by manipulating the equation and seeing
the change in the graph, and by manipulating the graph
and seeing the change in the equation.

Explicit and
implicit
multiplication
Implied multiplication takes place when two operands
appear with no operator in between. If you enter AB, for
example, the result is A*B.
However, for clarity, it is better to include the
multiplication sign where you expect multiplication in an
expression. It is clearest to enter AB as A*B.
H I N T Implied multiplication will not always work as expected.
For example, entering A(B+4) will not give A*(B+4).
Instead an error message is displayed: “Invalid User
Function”. This is because the calculator interprets
A(B+4) as meaning ‘evaluate function A at the value
B+4’, and function A does not exist. When in doubt, insert
the * sign manually.
Parentheses You need to use parentheses to enclose arguments for
functions, such as SIN(45). You can omit the final
parenthesis at the end of an edit line. The calculator
inserts it automatically.
Parentheses are also important in specifying the order of
operation. Without parentheses, the hp 39g+ calculates
according to the order of algebraic precedence (the next
topic). Following are some examples using parentheses.

Algebraic
precedence
order of
evaluation
Functions within an expression are evaluated in the
following order of precedence. Functions with the same
precedence are evaluated in order from left to right.
1. Expressions within parentheses. Nested parentheses
are evaluated from inner to outer.
2. Prefix functions, such as SIN and LOG.
3. Postfix functions, such as !
4. Power function, ^, NTHROOT.
5. Negation, multiplication, and division.
6. Addition and subtraction.
7. AND and NOT.
8. OR and XOR.
9. Left argument of | (where).
10.Equals, =.
Largest and
smallest
numbers
The smallest number the hp 39g+ can represent is
1 × 10–499(1E–499). A smaller result is displayed as
zero. The largest number is 9.99999999999 × 10499
(1E499). A greater result is displayed as this number.
Clearing
numbers
• clears the character under the cursor. When the
cursor is positioned after the last character,
deletes the character to the left of the cursor, that is, it
performs the same as a backspace key.
• CANCEL ( ) clears the edit line.
• CLEAR clears all input and output in the
display, including the display history.
Using previous
results
The HOME display ( ) shows you four lines of
input/output history. An unlimited (except by memory)
number of previous lines can be displayed by scrolling.
You can retrieve and reuse any of these values or
expressions.

When you highlight a previous input or result (by pressing
), the and menu labels appear.
To copy a previous
line
Highlight the line (press ) and press . The
number (or expression) is copied into the edit line.
To reuse the last
result
Press ANS (last answer) to put the last result from the
HOME display into an expression. ANS is a variable that
is updated each time you press .
To repeat a
previous line
To repeat the very last line, just press . Otherwise,
highlight the line (press ) first, and then press .
The highlighted expression or number is re-entered. If the
previous line is an expression containing the ANS, the
calculation is repeated iteratively.
Example See how ANS retrieves and reuses the last result
(50), and updates ANS (from 50 to 75 to 100).
50 25
You can use the last result as the first expression in the edit
line without pressing ANS. Pressing , , , or
, (or other operators that require a preceding
argument) automatically enters ANS before the operator.
You can reuse any other expression or value in the HOME
display by highlighting the expression (using the arrow
keys), then pressing . See “Using previous results”
on page 1-22 for more details.
The variable ANS is different from the numbers in HOME’s
display history. A value in ANS is stored internally with the
full precision of the calculated result, whereas the
displayed numbers match the display mode.
Page: 33
1-24 Getting started
H I N T When you retrieve a number from ANS, you obtain the
result to its full precision. When you retrieve a number
from the HOME’s display history, you obtain exactly what
was displayed.
Pressing evaluates (or re-evaluates) the last input,
whereas pressing ANS copies the last result (as ANS)
into the edit line.
Storing a value
in a variable
You can save an answer in a variable and use the
variable in later calculations. There are 27 variables
available for storing real values. These are A to Z and θ.
See Chapter 12, “Variables and memory management”
for more information on variables. For example:

4. Enter the precision value that you want to use, and
press to set the precision. Press to return
to HOME.
See “Setting fraction precision” below for more
information.
Setting fraction
precision
The fraction precision setting determines the precision in
which the hp 39g+ converts a decimal value to a fraction.
The greater the precision value that is set, the closer the
fraction is to the decimal value.
By choosing a precision of 1 you are saying that the
fraction only has to match 0.234 to at least 1 decimal
place (3/13 is 0.23076...).
The fractions used are found using the technique of
continued fractions.
When converting recurring decimals this can be
important. For example, at precision 6 the decimal
0.6666 becomes 3333/5000 (6666/10000) whereas
at precision 3, 0.6666 becomes 2/3, which is probably
what you would want.
For example, when converting .234 to a fraction, the
precision value has the following effect:

Converting
decimals to
fractions
To convert a decimal value to a fraction:
1. Set the number format mode to Fraction.
2. Either retrieve the value from the History, or enter the
value on the command line.
3. Press to convert the number to a fraction.
When converting a decimal to a fraction, keep the
following points in mind:
• When converting a recurring decimal to a fraction,
set the fraction precision to about 6, and ensure that
you include more than six decimal places in the
recurring decimal that you enter.
In this example, the
fraction precision is set
to 6. The top
calculation returns the
correct result. The
bottom one does not.
• To convert an exact decimal to a fraction, set the
fraction precision to at least two more than the
number of decimal places in the decimal.
In this example, the
fraction precision is set
to 6.

Complex numbers
Complex results The hp 39g+ can return a complex number as a result for
some math functions. A complex number appears as an
ordered pair (x, y), where x is the real part and y is the
imaginary part. For example, entering returns (0,1).
To enter complex
numbers
Enter the number in either of these forms, where x is the
real part, y is the imaginary part, and i is the imaginary
constant, :
• (x, y) or
• x + iy.

Aplet views
This section examines the options and functionality of the
three main views for the Function, Polar, Parametric, and
Sequence aplets: Symbolic, Plot, and Numeric views.
About the Symbolic view
The Symbolic view is the defining view for the Function,
Parametric, Polar, and Sequence aplets. The other views
are derived from the symbolic expression.
You can create up to 10 different definitions for each
Function, Parametric, Polar, and Sequence aplet. You
can graph any of the relations (in the same aplet)
simultaneously by selecting them.
Defining an expression (Symbolic view)
Choose the aplet from the Aplet Library.
Press or to
select an aplet.
The Function,
Parametric, Polar, and Sequence aplets start in the
Symbolic view.
If the highlight is on an existing expression, scroll to
an empty line—unless you don’t mind writing over the
expression—or, clear one line ( ) or all lines
( CLEAR).
Expressions are selected (check marked) on entry. To
deselect an expression, press . All selected
expressions are plotted.
Page: 41
2-2 Aplets and their views
– For a Function
definition, enter
an expression to
define F(X). The
only independent
variable in the
expression is X.
– For a
Parametric
definition, enter
a pair of
expressions to
define X(T) and
Y(T). The only
independent variable in the expressions is T.
– For a Polar
definition, enter
an expression to
define R(θ). The
only independent
variable in the
expression is θ.
– For a Sequence
definition, either:
Enter the first and
second terms for U
(U1, or...U9, or
U0). Define the nth
term of the
sequence in terms of N or of the prior terms,
U(N–1) and U(N–2). The expressions should
produce real-valued sequences with integer
domains. Or define the nth term as a non-
recursive expression in terms of n only. In this
case, the calculator inserts the first two terms
based on the expression that you define.

Set
Factors...
Sets the X-Zoom and Y-Zoom factors
for zooming in or zooming out.
Includes option to recenter the plot
before zooming.
Auto Scale Rescales the vertical axis so that the
display shows a representative
piece of the plot, for the supplied x
axis settings. (For Sequence and
Statistics aplets, autoscaling
rescales both axes.)
The autoscale process uses the first
selected function only to determine
the best scale to use.
Decimal Rescales both axes so each pixel =
0.1 units. Resets default values for
XRNG
(–6.5 to 6.5) and YRNG (–3.1 to
3.2). (Not in Sequence or Statistics
aplets.)
Integer Rescales horizontal axis only,
making each pixel =1 unit. (Not
available in Sequence or Statistics
aplets.)
Trig Rescales horizontal axis so
1 pixel = π/24 radians, 7.58, or
81
/3 grads; rescales vertical axis
so
1 pixel = 0.1 unit.
(Not in Sequence or Statistics
aplets.)
