#1**+2 **

"Sigma" is used to denote a sum

The symbol can be found here : http://math.typeit.org/

As an example of its use......suppose we have

3

∑ N + 1

1

This tells us to compute the sum (1 + 1) + (2 + 1) + (3 + 1) = 2 + 3 + 4 = 9

On this calculator...it looks like it might be possible to make a sum..but I can't quite figure out how...

When I copy and paste the example..it says " TODO !! "

I agree with hectictar......sums can probably be computed with the calculator, but I don't know the proper syntax.......maybe one of our "advanced" mods, Alan, knows the key !!!

Meanwhile.....WolframAlpha will easily compute sums :
