Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

I was wondering if there is a way to calculate the number of time periods, N, if the PV, FV and I/Y are entered? It doesn't seem to work for me.

For e.g. I/Y = 5/12 %, PV = 35,000, FV = 100,000, PMT = 0 (not applicable)

But when I press CPT and then press N it doesn't work (it gives an Error 5 message). I even tried P/Y = 12, I/Y = 5%, PV = 35,000, FV = 100,000 and PMT = 0 (not applicable) and it still gives me an error message.

If you could help, that would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Error 5 indicates that no solution exists. In this particular case, you're asking for the interest rate on a savings account that pays you 10,000 now and an additional 20,000 10 years later. (Or a loan where you pay 10,000 now and an additional 20,000 10 years later.)

Either PV or FV should be negative. For example, if you deposit 10,000 in a savings account and withdraw 20,000 10 years later, use -10,000 for FV.

take you sales for the last year and put it into a calculator, then press plus + and then 6 and then the per cent key %

Or

Take your sales from last year, multiply by 6 and then divide by 100. That is the amount you will increase. Add it to last years sales.

Sorry there is no "reset" for your printing calculator.

volume is calculated by finding the area multiplied by the length or height . That is Pi X radius squared X length

example --tube 6"dia 12"long what is the volume?

Example 3.1417 X radius 3" Squared =3.1417X9sq " = 28.2740sq" X length 12" =338.688 cubic"

If you want the volume of an engine cylinder , it is the same formula and the length is the stroke of the piston ( distance from TDC to BDC )

Circumference of a Circle: 2 x pi x radius - OR - pi x diameter,

or if you need some sphere calculations?

Sphere Surface Area: 4 X pi X radius squared OR

pi X diameter squared Sphere Volume: 4/3 X pi X radius cubed OR

( pi X diameter cubed ) / 6

By the way.......... "pi" = 3.1415926536

Use the words: decimal part, not decimal fractin

**Any number whose decimal part is periodic (has a recurring pattern that repeats indefinitely) is equivalent to a rational number, IS a rational number**

0.345 345 345 ... =345/999=115/333

In the following screen captures, discard the last digit if it does not belong to a period. It is the effect of rounding up of the calculator

**Period is 345**

**Period is 1**

Period is**09**

Period is** 79**

In general, if you have a decimal part of the form 0.d_1 d_2 d_3....d_n d_1 d_2 d_3 ...d_n ... where d_1 is the first digit of the period, d_2 is the 2nd digit of the period, ..., d_n is the n-th digit (and the last one) of the period, then the fraction representation of

0.**d_1d_2...d_n** d_1d_2... d_n ...=(**d_1d_2...d_n**)/(99...9) where the number of 9's in the denominator is equal to the number of digits in the period.

Once the fraction is found, one should reduce it to its simplest form.

454 grammes to a pound ,use the calculator in the computer but roughly that 1cwt or 100 pounds divided by 14 ,which is 14 pounds to one stone ,wow this takes me back to pre decimalisation

The circumference of a circle is C=2 * pi * r or C= pi * d.

What do we know? C=47.1 and pi.

What are we trying to calculate? d

Put what we know in the equation and solve for d.

47.1 = pi * d

To isolate d, we have to divide both sides by pi.

47.1

------ = d

pi

I get 14.99' or approximately 15' as the diameter.

Good luck,

Paul

Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?

I have the same issue when trying to calculate I/Y, when everything elese given. Same Error 5 message.

I was wondering if there is something wrong with it or it's just a wrong value somewhere in it's memory?
