I've got a manual in the original box I got 30 yrs ago. The calculator's dial is getting to the unreadable state and I'm just about to turf it all out. Is there any particular function you want to know about?

• Enter in the order of month, day and year, then press to complete the entry.

• Use to separate month, day, and year.

• When is pressed, the number entered is evaluated and displayed as “date” if the

value is within the following range; “Error” is displayed otherwise, and the previously set

date is restored.

Month: 1 - 12; day: 1 - 31; Year: 2000 - 2099 (in 4 digits) or 00 - 99 (in 2 digits)

(There is no entry available for the seconds value. The clock starts at zero second.)

• If the hour/minute digit is less than 10, it is not necessary to enter the first digit “0”.

• Use to separate hour and minute values.

• When is pressed, the number entered is evaluated and displayed as “time” if the

SOURCE: how to calculate

It's very simple: the calculators have a default base 10 so that log x it's log x base 10 so here is some logs:

log x base y = log x / log y

log (x*y) = log x + log y

log (x/y) = log x - log y

Hope it's helped

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.

You need to select the number of decimal places you would like, or if you would like the calculator to behave as normal. Press SET UP and select FSE (press 1) . You now have 5 options.

0: FIX means you can choose a fixed number of decimal places for every calculation.

1: SCI means scientific notation and choose the number of significant values you would like to deal with.

2: ENG means engineering and the power goes up in multiples of 3.

3: NORM1 and 4: NORM2 are the usual or normal settings on the calculator. Most school calculations will use NORM1 mode.

Hi there,

Firstly, can i recommend resetting the calculator (There is a reset button on the back). (Or in general press 2ndF MODE to clear all the saved data).

Set your MODE to BEGIN by pressing 2ndF FV.

press 180 N

press 9 i/y

press 2ndF I/Y - press 12 ENT (this puts in your compounding intervals).

Press on

press +/- 35 000 PV

press 446 659 FV

Press COMP PMT.

This should give you the answer of -819.23 as expected :)
