Unformatted text preview: Hewlett-Packard 10BII Tutorial This tutorial has been developed to be used in conjunction with Brigham and Houstons Fundamentals of Financial Management 11 th edition and Fundamentals of Financial Management: Concise 3 rd Edition . In particular, the tutorial was developed in conjunction with Chapter 2: The Time Value of Money and Chapter 8: Risk and Return. Today, most financial analysis is performed with computer spreadsheet programs, but most educational institutions are constrained to using financial calculators. While the tools may be different, the underlying financial principles remain the same. To begin, look at the face of the calculator. Every key (except two, the gold shift key and the purple shift key) on the 10BII has at least two functions, and some have three functions. Each key's primary function is noted in white on the key itself, while a secondary function may be noted in gold on the bottom half of the key or in purple above the key. To use the primary function in white on the key, simply press the key. To access the gold function at the bottom of each key, first press the key with the solid gold face, which we will call the "gold shift" key, and then press the desired function key. Likewise, to access the purple function above some of the keys, first press the key with the solid purple face, which we will call the "purple shift" key, and then press the desired function key. (Note that the gold and purple shift keys are located on the left side of the calculator keyboard.) BASIC CALCULATOR FUNCTIONS First, it is important to review how some elementary calculator functions are performed using the HP10BII. This calculator peforms all the basic arithmetic functions, such as addition, multiplication and exponents. The numeric keypad and command keys operate just like any other calculator. Hewlett-Packard 10BII Tutorial Page 2 The GOLD and PURPLE shift keys The two shift keys allow the user to access specific functions the calculator can perform. Also, note that pressing the gold shift key places a little "SHIFT" symbol in the lower left corner of the LCD display. Press the gold shift key again and the symbol goes away. Likewise, pressing the purple shift key places a STATS symbol in the lower left area of the display. The key is a toggle key that switches back and forth between the regular and the gold functions. Likewise, the purple shift key is a toggle between regular and STATS functions. The and keys can be likened to typewriter regular and STATS functions....
