Rounding up


By default the BA-II Plus displays two digits to the right of the decimal point, for dollars and cents. To change the number of digits, press 2nd [FORMAT] and a digit from 0-8. Use 9 for floating decimal display.

How to you chage from 2 decimals to 4 on the ba ii plus


By default the BAII Plus displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press the 2nd key, then the decimal point key, and, when prompted, enter the number of digits you would like to see displayed. You must then press the Enter key to lock in your choice. I would press 2nd, ., 5, Enter to display 5 decimal places. Now press 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

One other adjustment is important. The BAII Plus comes from the factory set to assume monthly compounding. That's fine, I suppose, but its better to set it to assume annual compounding and then make manual adjustments when you enter numbers. Why? Well, the compounding assumption is hidden from view and in my experience people tend to forget to set it to the correct assumption. Of course, most people don't recognize a wrong answer when they get one, so they blithely forge ahead. To fix this problem press 2nd then I/Y and enter 1 when prompted. Now press Enter and then 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

No decimal display on TI BA-II calculator


Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

SETTING UP THE DECIMAL ON NEW 210 TM


Set the +43210F switch to + (or 2).
On some models it is A43210F, then use A (or 2).
+ mode will let you enter numbers (monetary) without the decimal point and assumes cents; 2 mode will just round to 2 decimals, but you must enter the decimal.
