A blog is that is all about mathematics and calculators, two of my passions in life.

Change of Plans
Apparently, someone on YouTube, maybe the company itself, doesn't like algebra. Who knew talking about the F.O.I.L. method was so offensive? I am appealing the decision.
For the time being, I will probably cease making videos until this matter is resolved (I expect it to be in my favor, but who knows).

Update: YouTube restored my FOIL video and I am back in good standing. Happy dance! Eddie

Math Videos and Update
Sample Slide 
Over the next few weeks I am going to working several short math videos that I will post on YouTube. When each video is completed, I will leave a link to that video on this blog.
The videos are going to be pretty short covering various topics in mathematics.
I hope you enjoyed the HP 15C programs posted over the last two weeks. I plan to continue to post programs for various calculators this year.
I thank you for the comments and reviews. Talk to you next time, and be safe everyone,

HP 15C:
Soderberg’s Equation for Fatigue
Source: Step by Step Solutions for your HP
Calculator: Engineering Applications.
HP32S. Hewlett Packard. Corvallis, OR. 1988
pg. 5254
Equation:
Syp/FS =
(Smax + Smin)/2 + K * (Syp/Se) * ((Smax – Smin)/2)
Variables:
R0 = Syp =
yield point stress
R1 = Se =
endurance stress reversed bending tests
R2 = Smax =
maximum applied stress
R3 = Smin =
minimum applied stress
R4 = K =
stress concentration factor
R5 = FS =
factor of safety
Instructions:
Enter the
known values in each of the variables.
Enter the number of the variable to be solved in register I ( [ STO ] [
TAN ] (I) ). To solve, enter a range,
and press [ f ] [ ÷ ] (SOLVE), [ e^x ] (B). (*or whatever label you assigned
this program to)

Example:
Find the

R2 = Smax =
20,000 psi
R3 = Smin =
10,000 psi
R4 = K = 1.5
R5 = FS = 2
Store 0 in
RI.
Solution: 55,000 psi
