Polynomial Derivative and Integral for HP 35S

This program calculates the coefficients of the derivative and the integral of a polynomial. The maximum degree of the polynomial can be is seven.

The variables of the polynomial are:

H x^7 + G x^6 + F x^5 + E x^4 + D x^3 + C x^2 + B x + A


1. Load the Polynomial. Press XEQ P001, enter the degree of the polynomial and load the coefficients from the highest degree to the constant.

2. Operation. To find the derivative, press XEQ P033. For an indefinite integral, press XEQ P083.

Find the derivative and integral of f(x) = x^3 - 2x^2 + 1

1. XEQ P001
2. Enter 3 at DEGREE prompt, then press R/S
3. "X^3" : 1, R/S
4. "X^2" : -2, R/S
5. "X^1" : 0, R/S
6. "X^0" : 1, R/S
7. XEQ P033. Press R/S after each coefficient.

Then f'(x) = 3x^2 - 4x

For the integral:
1. XEQ P001
2. Enter 3 at DEGREE prompt, then press R/S
3. "X^3" : 1, R/S
4. "X^2" : -2, R/S
5. "X^1" : 0, R/S
6. "X^0" : 1, R/S
7. Press XEQ P083.

Then the integral is .25x^4 - .6666666667x^3 + x

Recall that the variables of the polynomial are:

H x^7 + G x^6 + F x^5 + E x^4 + D x^3 + C x^2 + B x + A


  1. very impressive creativity in programming to solve these problems the 35s.
    But the the problem still persists because it can not the solution to complex expressions.

    good work

  2. Hi Eddie,
    I'm having trouble getting this program to work. I've rechecked everything, but can't get the degrees to show in the first part and so the rest of it won't work. I'm wondering about P063 N? Is that "recall N", "store N" or "eqn N"? I hope I can get it to work. It's a very cool program. I love working with my HP 35s. I'm new to programming. I also like your HP 50g programming tutorials.

  3. Thanks Eddie,
    Works perfect!

  4. Can this solve indefinite integrals or derivatives without giving a specific value to x?
