MGNT 3125 Fall 2010 Dr. Amine Khayati Hewlett-Packard 10BII Tutorial Every key on the calculator has at least two functions. The first function of the key is noted in white on the key, while the second function of the key is noted in orange color just below the white function. Obviously, to use the function on the key, simply press the key itself. To access the secondary function at the bottom of each key, first you need to press the key with the solid orange key (orange shift key), and then press the desired function key. For this tutorial, we are using the square label to represent the orange shift key. Turning on and off the calculator: To turn the calculator on, press . To turn the calculator off, press and then . To conserve energy, the calculator will turn off about 10 minutes after your last keystroke. Changing the display: When you turn on your calculator, the display will show 0.0000 By default there are 4 digits to the right of the point. If you want to display only 2 digits, press and then press 2, now you should have 0.00 displayed and the calculator will do the rounding automatically. Clearing the memory: To clear the calculator’s memory, press and then Make sure you clear the calculator memory before you start a new calculation. The calculator may use some of the unwanted data stored in the memory in your new calculation and hence give the wrong answer. This is a key rule in using this calculator: Clear All before starting a calculation. In some cases, you may want to use the data saved in the memory, but in most cases you will be entering new data, so get into the habit of clearing memory before starting a calculation. 1

There are three ways of clearing data: clears all memory and the display. clears the last digit you entered on the display. Time Value of Money (TVM) The TVM keys are located on the upper row of your calculator. In general, TVM problems involve these five variables. Usually, we have four of these variables known and we calculate the fifth one. Periods per year (P/YR) setting: The calculator comes pre-set at 12 periods per year, meaning it assumes that calculations of interest will be done on a monthly basis (compounding monthly). However, in many cases we will use other periods. For example, if the interest is calculated annually, you have to change the setting as follow: Press 1 and then press Now the calculator is set to assume 1 payment per year. To double check the current setting, press and hold at the same time , the display shows 1 P/YR. 2

For the first 4 examples, we will not use the payment key , so be sure to either clear all, which sets the payment (PMT) to 0, or enter 0 as the payment. Note when you Clear All, you set all the five variables equal to zero. Example 1: Calculating Future Values.
