Question about HP 10bII Calculator

101.26 is what you'd get for 5% APR compounded monthly for three months. 115.76 is what you'd get for 5% APR compounded yearly for three years. Make sure that the compounding interval and the interest rate are consistent.

Hi there,

First make sure all previous amounts stored are cleared by pressing 2nd F MODE.

Then type in the original value 20 000 and press PV.

Type in the interest 13 and press I/Y.

(If i assume that the interest is compounded yearly my calculation is more simple)

press 5 and N

Press COMP FV and your answer will be - 36 848.70

(If I assume that the interest is compounded monthly, i need to input a little bit more data into my calculator)

Press 2nd F I/Y (to get to payments per year) and press 12 and ENT. Press ON.

Then press 5 and 2nd F N and then press N again.

Now calculate FV by pressing COMP FV which should give you - 38 177.13.

Take this value and subtract the PV from it to get the amount of interest earned.

The 107,186.37 is what the future value would be if the interest per month is 0.58%, which is 6.96% per year. Try the following:

2nd [CLR TVM] 1 2 N 7 I/YR 1 0 0 0 0 0 PV CPT FV

As for rounding, you can change the calculator display to any number of digits (up to a limit, of course) by pressing 2nd [FORMAT] and then a number specifying the number of desired digits after the decimal point or 9 for floating decimal.

Did you fix this? I am having the same problem.

What you've done is calculate the future value after 3 months, not 3 years.

Press 1 SHIFT [P/YR] to set the payments per year to one. Now the FV key should give you 115.76

The I/YR key on the top row, with or without the shift key.

Typing 1 2 5 0 PV 1 5 2 0 +/- FV 4 N I/YR should give you 5.01

Typing 1 2 5 0 PV 1 5 2 0 +/- FV 4 N I/YR should give you 5.01

2nd [CLR TVM] (clear old data)

6 2 5 PV (present value)

8 I/Y (annual interest)

1 2 8 4 +/- FV (future value)

CPT N / 1 2 = (compute number of months, divide by 12 to get number of years)

Hey,

Just found out the answer!

Apparently you can't have both FV and PV positive. Try the calculation with one of them being negative.

You have the payments-per-year set to 12. For this pair of problems, it needs to be set to 1.

Press 2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER.

Press 2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER.

PV=1,077,202 while FV=1,000,000 ? I wonder somebody will lent me $1,077,202 and accept to get back $1,000,000 in 10 years later.

Your example's got prob, guy !
