Unformatted text preview: Hewlett-Packard 10BII Tutorial for Use with Fundamentals 11/e and Concise 5/e This tutorial was developed for use with Brigham and Houston’s Fundamentals of Financial Management, 11/e and Concise, 5/e, especially Chapter 2, the Time Value of Money. The calculator’s 143-page manual covers all of its functions in detail, and it is worth the time to go through the manual. However, this does take time, and many of the calculator’s features are not necessary for working the problems in the text. Therefore, we focus on just what’s needed to work the text problems. We recommend that you read the text to get an idea about the concepts, then go through the tutorial to learn how to work the problems efficiently. The examples in the tutorial are identical to the examples in the text, which makes simultaneous coverage especially efficient. Although the tutorial focuses on Chapter 2, it does have a section on Statistical Calculations, which are needed for Chapter 8 of the text. You can defer that part of the tutorial until you get to Chapter 8 of the text. Also, note that the TVM applications covered in text Chapter 2 and this tutorial are required for many text chapters, especially those dealing with bond and stock valuation and capital budgeting. Therefore, it will pay big dividends to learn how to use your calculator early in the course, like right now. BASIC CALCULATOR FUNCTIONS The HP10BII performs all the basic arithmetic functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponents, and so on that can be done with any calculator. But it can also solve TVM problems and do certain statistical and math calculations that simple calculators cannot do. The GOLD and PURPLE shift keys Most of the keys have white numbers or lettering on top, then gold lettering on the sloped front side. There is also purple lettering on the case just above the six middle keys. The white, gold, and purple colors are used because some keys can perform multiple functions. The two shift keys with no lettering but a gold (looks orange) and a purple swatch allow the user to activate the gold and purple function keys. If neither key is pressed, then the keys perform the function indicated by the white lettering. Also, note that pressing the gold shift key GOLD places the word “SHIFT” in the lower left corner of Hewlett-Packard 10BII Tutorial Page 2 the LCD display. Press the GOLD key again and SHIFT goes away. Likewise, pressing the PURPLE key places the word “STATS” in the lower left area of the display.
