When solving for FV, the calculator uses the unrounded value for PMT. 22 Chapter 2: Using the TVM and Amortization Worksheets Entering, Recalling, and Computing TVM Values
You enter a TVM value by keying in a value and pressing the appropriate
TVM key (,,
, or 0).
You recall a TVM value to the display by pressing and the TVM key. When you enter or recall a value for any of the five TVM variables (N, I/Y,

By entering the number of years (for example, 30) and pressing
you can calculate the number of payments required to pay off an annuity.
Then press , to enter that value as the number of payments in a TVM
calculation. Entering Inflows and Outflows
The calculator follows the established convention of treating inflows of
cash (cash received) as positive and outflows of cash (cash paid out) as
You must enter inflows as positive values and outflows as negative
The calculator displays computed inflows as positive values and
computed outflows as negative values.
Enter inflows as positive
