HP 17Bii LET & GET misunderstanding?
Probably a rookie mistake on my part, but I don't see why this calculation doesn't work:
MX = L(D:HMHR)x0,95+HR+0xL(FR:G(D)x0,8+HR)+0xL(WL:G(D)x0,65+HR)+0x(FR+WL) MX = heart rate threshold HM = maximum heart rate HR = resting heart rate FR = fitness range WL = weight loss range When entering HM and HR (179 and 43, in my case) I get the correct value for MX. But when I try to display the value for FR or WL, I get "SOLUTION NOT FOUND". What am I missing here? Thanks a lot!

But since you're setting them using L() as a side effect of solving for MX, you can press RCL FR or RCL WL to retrieve those values after solving for MX.
