Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

2 Answers



I have a BA II Plus Professional calculator from Texas Instruments.

I need to calculate the resultant rate (given the interest rate and escalation rate) for an annuity with an annual escalation.

The manual is extremely user unfriendly and I can not get it right. What I can do is to calculate the effective rate (if nominal rate and term is given). Can not however find a way to calculate resultant rate.

I also need an easy explanation to calculate the interest and capital components of a certain payment for amoritisation - the manual is also not very clear in this regard.

THank you so much

You can't use the calcuator for that you need to use the formula (1+interest/1+escalation) - 1. You then insert the follwoing on the calculator:
1) Number of compounding periods = shift P/YR,
2) Number of Years = Shift xP/YR
3) Number of Years = N
4) -1st cashflow = PMT
5) Resultant rate = I
6) 0 = FV

I need to use the EE button on my BA II plus professional finanacial caluclator. I need to calculate 2.06 * 10^23 divided by 3.78 * 10^28...Help?

If you do not have the Enter Exponent key (EE) you can use the general power key marked [Y^x], the one above the [9] key. Use parentheses to enclose the (10^23) and (10^28).
Frankly, if you have to do many calculations of this kind, better buy yourself a scientific calculator.

I have two BA real estate calculator with the same problem. Each one is slightly off in the calculation. Example. $100,000 loan 6% rate 30 year term should have a 599.99 payment and when I input this...

$596.57 is what I get with payments occurring at the beginning of the month. Set it to handle payments at the end of the month. My calculator gives $599.55 for this case.

I'm not sure about the BA RE, but on the BA-II Plus you change the Begin/End setting by pressing 2nd [BGN] and 2nd [SET].

Pressing 2 0 0 LN = will give you the natural logarithm of 200. If you need the common (base 10) logarithm, divide the result by the log of 10.

Hi is there a function for finding the cubed root/custom root on the Texas Instruments ba-ii Plus Calculator

You can calculate any root by raising to the reciprocal. For example, to calculate the cube root of 125, press 1 2 5 y^x 3 1/x =

To calculate the fourth root of 16, press 1 6 y^x 4 1/x =

The y^x key is just above the 9 key. The 1/x key is just above that.
