How to use more than 50% of processor

I have a program that does a lot of math calculations and I would like it to use more of the processor so it it will get done faster. How can I make this program use more of the processor. I have gone to task manager and set the priority to high but it only uses 50% or less.

What program is this, what operating system are you using, and what model of laptop is this?

the simplest possible explanation is that your laptop has two processors, and the program you're running is only designed to use 1 processor.

which would mean that since the program will always leave one processor free, you'll never exceed 50%.

without more details though, I can't be certain that's the real reason.

    as nearly as i can tell, Metatrader is not capable of multithreading, which would mean that it can only use one processor at a time.

    since you have a duo processor, that explains why you can't exceed 50%.

I need to type math symbols. How do I do that?

Start - Program Files - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map.

Or find the ones you want to use online and copy & paste them. If you have a series of math symbols you use a lot, paste them into a little NotePad file and save it on your desktop for that purpose.

Here you go, Ray Ray...

In order to calculate the factorial of a number you must do the following:

1. Type your number [8]
2. Hit MATH
3. Scroll to PRB
4. Hit ENTER [The factorial symbol should be either the 1st one on that list or the 4th one]

Longstoryshort, if you want to find the factorial symbol on your TI-83 you must go to MATH. PRB. !. Done

By the way...that factorial is the fastest growing type of function in mathematics, and it is the backbone behind permutation, combinations, and a lot of probability theory.

Alright, to be serious for a moment, AMD is just one of several manufacturers of what is called a "processor", or "CPU" inside a computer. They also label the models of their processors using their company name in the model names.
Although computers themselves consist of many different parts working together in unison to run your programs- the processor is often referred to as the closest thing to a "brain" in the computer. It is responsible for performing millions of complex math calculations each second, whenever Windows or another program is run and used.
Other manufacturers of processors you might recognize, are Intel (who designed the Pentium line of CPUS), and ARM (which you may not have heard of, but that has had some remarkable developments).
Hope this helps...

Rather than looking for someone to program your calculator you should visit the archives for the HP48G and look for a program or programs that solve the problems you are dealing with.
