Calculations Easy Before you begin to read through this handbook, let’s take a look at how easy financial calculations can be with your hp 12c. While working through the examples below, don’t be concerned about learning how to use the calculator;...
Page 12
Making Financial Calculations Easy Note: A battery symbol ( ) shown in the lower-left corner of the display when the calculator is on signifies that the available battery power is nearly exhausted. To install new batteries, refer to Appendix E. The calendar functions and nearly all of the financial functions take some time to produce an answer.

Annual interest rate. This is only a small sampling of the many financial calculations that can now be done easily with your hp 12c. To begin learning about this powerful financial tool, just turn the page. File name: hp 12c_user's guide_English_HDPMBF12E44...
Appendix E. The Keyboard Many keys on the hp 12c perform two or even three functions. The primary function of a key is indicated by the characters printed in white on the upper face of the key. The alternate function(s) of a key are indicated by the characters printed in gold above the key and the characters printed in blue on the lower face of the key.
Section 1: Getting Started Throughout this handbook, references to the operation of an alternate function appear as only the function name in a box (for example, “The L function …”). References to the selection of an alternate function appear preceded by the appropriate prefix key (for example, “Pressing fL …”).
The CLEAR Keys Clearing a register or the display replaces the number in it with zero. Clearing program memory replaces the instructions there with gi00. There are several clearing operations on the hp 12c, as shown in the table below: Key(s) Clears: Display and X-register.
Any simple arithmetic calculation involves two numbers and an operation — addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. To do such a calculation on your hp 12c, you first tell the calculator the two numbers, then tell the calculator the operation to be performed. The answer is calculated when the operation key (+,-,§, or z) is pressed.
The hp 12c is designed so that each time you press a function key in RPN mode, the calculator performs the operation then — not later — so that you see the results of all intermediate calculations, as well as the “bottom line.”...
Page 21
The preceding example demonstrates how the hp 12c calculates just as you would using pencil and paper (except a lot faster!): Let’s see this happening in a different type of calculation — one that involves multiplying groups of two numbers and then adding the results.
Page 22
5 and the 6 in step 2, the calculator was holding two numbers (12 and 5) inside for you, in addition to the 6 in the display. (The hp 12c can hold a total of three numbers inside, in addition to the number in the display.) After step 2, the calculator was still holding the 12 inside for you, in addition to the 30 in the display.
Section 1: Getting Started Storage Registers Numbers (data) in the hp 12c are stored in memories called “storage registers” or simply “registers.” (The singular term “ memory” is sometimes used in this handbook to refer to the entire collection of storage registers.) Four special registers are used for storing numbers during calculations (these “stack registers”...
Suppose you wanted to perform an arithmetic operation with the number in the display and the number in a storage register, then store the result back into the same register without altering the number in the display. The hp 12c enables you to do all this in a single operation: 1.
Page 25
Section 1: Getting Started Storage register arithmetic is possible with only registers R through R Example: In the example on page 20, we updated the balance in your checkbook. Let’s suppose that because data is stored indefinitely in your calculator’s Continuous Memory, you keep track of your checking account balance in the calculator.
Functions Percentage Functions The hp 12c includes three keys for solving percentage problems: b, à, and Z. You don’t need to convert percentages to their decimal equivalents; this is done automatically when you press any of these keys. Thus, 4% need not be changed to 0.04;...
A net amount — that is, the base amount plus or minus the percentage amount — can be calculated easily with your hp 12c, since the calculator holds the base amount inside after you calculate a percentage amount. To calculate a net amount, simply calculate the percentage amount, then press = or -.
Europe had nearly 30% of the total sales. The hp 12c holds the total amount inside after a percent of total is calculated. Therefore, to calculate what percentage another amount is of the total: 1. Clear the display by pressing O.
Europe had nearly 30% of the total sales. Calendar Functions The calendar functions provided by the hp 12c — D and Ò — can handle dates from October 15, 1582 through November 25, 4046. Date Format For each of the calendar functions —...

(the extra days occurring in leap years), if any. In addition, the hp 12c also calculates the number of days between the two dates on the basis of a 30-day month. This answer is held inside the calculator; to display it, press ~.
Basic Financial Functions The Financial Registers In addition to the data storage registers discussed on page 23, the hp 12c has five special registers in which numbers are stored for financial calculations. These registers are designated n, i, PV, PMT, and FV. The first five keys on the top row of...
Continuous Memory is reset (as described on page 70). Simple Interest Calculations The hp 12c simultaneously calculates simple interest on both a 360-day basis and a 365-day basis. You can display either one, as described below. Furthermore, with the accrued interest in the display, you can calculate the total amount (principal plus accrued interest) by pressing +.
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Keystrokes Display 7.00 7¼ Stores the annual interest rate. –450.00 450Þ$ Stores the principal. fÏ 5.25 Accrued interest, 360-day basis. 455.25 Total amount: principal plus accrued interest. Example 2: Your friend agrees to the 7% interest on the loan from the preceding example, but asks that you compute it on a 365-day basis rather than a 360-day basis.
Page 35
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions The exchange of money in a problem is depicted by vertical arrows. Money you receive is represented by an arrow pointing up from the point in the time line when the transaction occurs; money you pay out is represented by an arrow pointing down.
Analysis: NPV and IRR. Procedures for calculating the balance in a savings account after a series of irregular and/or unequal deposits are included in the hp 12c Solutions Handbook.) FV — the future value — is the final cash flow or the compounded value of a series of prior cash flows.
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions The Payment Mode One more bit of information must be specified before you can solve a problem involving periodic payments. Such payments can be made either at the beginning of a compounding period (payments in advance, or annuities due) or at the end of the period (payments in arrears, or ordinary annuities).

Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Compound Interest Calculations Specifying the Number of Compounding Periods and the Periodic Interest Rate Interest rates are usually quoted at the annual rate (also called the nominal rate): that is, the interest rate per year. However, in compound interest problems, the interest rate entered into i must always be expressed in terms of the basic compounding period, which may be years, months, days, or any other time unit.
Page 40
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions If the answer calculated is not an integer (that is, there would be nonzero digits to the right of the decimal point), the calculator rounds the answer up to the next higher integer before storing it in the n register and displaying it. For example, if n were calculated as 318.15, 319.00 would be the displayed answer.
Page 41
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Keystrokes Display 27.33 Twenty-seven years and four months. Because the calculator rounds the calculated value of n up to the next higher integer, in the preceding example it is likely that — while 328 payments will be required to pay off the loan —...
Page 42
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Example 2: You’re opening a savings account today (the middle of the month) with a $775 deposit. The account pays 6 % interest compounded semimonthly. If you make semimonthly deposits of $50 beginning next month, how long will it take for your account to reach $4000 ? Keystrokes Display...
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Keystrokes Display 4,027.27 Calculates FV – which equals the balance in the account if 58 full deposits were made. –50.00 Recalls amount of deposits. 3,977.27 Calculates the balance in the account if 57 full deposits were made and interest accrued during the 58 month.

Page 51
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions You can calculate i, PV, PMT, and FV for transactions involving an odd period simply by entering a noninteger n. (A noninteger is a number with at least one nonzero digit to the right of the decimal point.) This places the calculator in Odd-Period mode.
Page 52
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Example 1: A 36-month loan for $4,500 accrues interest at a 15% annual percentage rate (APR), with the payments made at the end of each month. If interest begins accruing on this loan on February 15, 2004 (so that the first period begins on March 1, 2004), calculate the monthly payment, with the odd days counted on the basis of a 30-day month and compound interest used for the odd period.
Page 53
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Example 2: A 42-month car loan for $3,950 began accruing interest on July 19, 2004, so that the first period began on August 1, 2004. Payments of $120 are made at the end of each month. Calculate the annual percentage rate (APR), using the actual number of odd days and simple interest for the odd period.
This rounding affects the number inside the calculator as well as how the number appears in the display. The amounts calculated on your hp 12c may differ from those on the statements of lending institutions by a few cents, since different rounding techniques are sometimes used.
Page 55
The number of payments keyed in just before f! is pressed is taken to be the payments following any that have already been amortized. Thus, if you now press 12f!, your hp 12c will calculate the amounts applied to interest and to the principal from the second year’s payments (that is, the second 12 months):...
Page 56
Section 3: Basic Financial Functions Keystrokes Display –552.08 Portion of first payment applied to interest. –21.27 Portion of first payment applied to principal. –551.85 Portion of second payment applied to interest. –21.50 Portion of second payment applied to principal. 2.00 Total number of payments amortized.
Functions Discounted Cash Flow Analysis: NPV and IRR The hp 12c provides functions for the two most widely-used methods of discounted cash flow analysis: l (net present value) and L (internal rate of return). These functions enable you to analyze financial problems involving cash flows (money paid out or received) occurring at regular intervals.
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions If NPV is positive, the financial value of the investor’s assets would be increased: the investment is financially attractive. If NPV is zero, the financial value of the investor’s assets would not change: the investor is indifferent toward the investment. If NPV is negative, the financial value of the investor’s assets would be decreased: the investment is not financially attractive.
Page 59
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions The amounts of the subsequent cash flows are stored – in the order they occur – in the remaining storage registers: CF thru CF in R thru R , and CF thru CF in R thru R , respectively.
Page 60
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions Example: An investor has an opportunity to buy a duplex for $80,000 and would like a return of at least 13%. He expects to keep the duplex 5 years and then sell it for $130,000; and he anticipates the cash flows shown in the diagram below.
Page 61
Grouped Cash Flows. A maximum of 20 cash flow amounts (in addition to the initial investment CF ) can be stored in the hp 12c. However, problems involving more than 20 cash flows can be handled if among the cash flows there are equal consecutive cash flows. For such problems, you merely enter along with the amounts of the cash flows the number of times —...

Section 4: Additional Financial Functions Example: An investor has an opportunity to purchase a piece of property for $79,000; and he would like a 13 % return. He expects to be able to sell it after 10 years for $100,000 and anticipates the yearly cash flows shown in the table below: Year Cash Flow...
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions Calculating Internal Rate of Return (IRR) 1. Enter the cash flows using either of the methods described above under Calculating Net Present Value. 2. Press fL. The calculated value of IRR appears in the display and also is automatically stored in the i register.
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions The complex mathematical characteristics of the IRR computation have an additional ramification: Depending on the magnitudes and signs of the cash flows, the computation of IRR may have a single answer, multiple answers, a negative answer or no answer.

Section 4: Additional Financial Functions To calculate bond price and yield for a 30/360 bond (that is, using the basis of a 30day month and a 360-day year — such as for municipal bonds, corporate bonds, and state and local government bonds), and to calculate bond price for bonds with an annual coupon payment, refer to Section 16: Bonds.
4.28 4.282004\ Enters settlement (purchase) date. 6.042018 6.042018 Enters maturity (redemption) date. 8.15 Bond yield. Depreciation Calculations The hp 12c enables you to calculate depreciation and the remaining depreciable value (book value minus salvage value) using straight-line, sum-of-the-years-digits, and declining-balance methods. To do so with any of these methods: 1.
Page 69
Section 4: Additional Financial Functions Example: A metalworking machine, purchased for $10,000, is depreciated over 5 years. Its salvage value is estimated at $500. Find the depreciation and remaining depreciable value for the first 3 years of the machine’s life using the declining-balance method at double the straight-line rate (200 percent declining-balance).
Section 5 Additional Operating Features Continuous Memory The calculator’s Continuous Memory contains the data storage registers, the financial registers, the stack and LAST X registers, program memory, and status information such as display format, date format, and payment mode. All information in Continuous Memory is preserved even while the calculator is turned off.

Section 7 Mathematics and Number-Alteration Functions The hp 12c provides several keys for mathematical functions and for altering, numbers. These functions are useful for specialized financial calculations as well as for general mathematics calculations. One-Number Functions Most of the mathematics functions require that only one number be in the calculator (that is, the number in the display) before the function key is pressed.
Section 7: Mathematics and Number-Alteration Functions Fractional. Pressing gT replaces the number in the display by its fractional portion — that is, it replaces all digits to the left of the decimal point by 0. Like Ñ, T changes the number inside the calculator as well as its displayed version.
Section 7: Mathematics and Number-Alteration Functions The Power Function Pressing q calculates a power of a number — that is, y . Like the arithmetic function +, q requires two numbers: 1. Key in the base number (which is designated by the y on the key). 2.
Section 8 Programming Basics Why Use Programs? A program is simply a sequence of keystrokes that is stored in the calculator. Whenever you have to calculate with the same sequence of keystrokes several times, you can save a great deal of time by incorporating these keystrokes in a program.
Section 8: Programming Basics Keystrokes Display 150.00 Price less discount. Handling charge. 155.00 Net cost (price less discount plus handling charge). Next, set the calculator to Program mode and erase any program(s) already stored: Keystrokes Display Sets calculator to Program mode. fCLEARÎ...
Section 8: Programming Basics Example: Run the program created above to calculate the net cost of a typewriter listing for $625 and an executive chair listing for $159. Keystrokes Display 155.00 Sets calculator to Run mode. Display shows number previously calculated. 625.
Section 8: Programming Basics Identifying Instructions in Program Lines Each key on the hp 12c keyboard — except for the digit keys 0 through 9 — is identified by a two-digit “keycode” that corresponds to the key’s position on the keyboard.
Occasionally you’ll want to check several or all of the instructions stored in program memory. The hp 12c enables you to review program instructions either forward or backward through program memory: Pressing Ê (single step) while the calculator is in Program mode advances the calculator to the next line in program memory, then displays that line number and the keycode of the instruction stored there.
Section 8: Programming Basics Program line 07 contains the last instruction you keyed into program memory. However, if you press Ê again, you’ll see that this is not the last line stored in program memory: Keystrokes Display 08- 43, 33 Ê...
Section 8: Programming Basics Expanding Program M emory If no instructions have been keyed into program memory, if Continuous Memory has been reset, or if fCLEARÎ has been pressed (in Program mode), program memory consists of 8 program lines, and there are 20 storage registers available for storage of data.
Section 8: Programming Basics Program memory is automatically expanded like this whenever another seven instructions have been keyed into program memory — that is, when you key an instruction into program line 16, 23, 30 etc. In each case, the additional program lines made available are converted, seven lines at a time, from the last available data storage register (whether or not data has been stored in that register;...
Section 8: Programming Basics With the calculator in Run mode, pressing gi followed by two digit keys sets the calculator to the program line specified by the digit keys. Since the calculator is not in Program mode, the line number and keycode are not displayed.
Interrupting Program Execution Occasionally you’ll want a program to stop executing so that you can see an intermediate result or enter new data. The hp 12c provides two functions for doing so: u (pause) and t (run/stop). Pausing During Program Execution When a running program executes a u instruction, program execution halts for about 1 second, then resumes.
Page 98
Section 8: Programming Basics Example: Create a program that calculates the entries in the AMOUNT, TAX, and TOTAL columns for each item on the jewelry distributor’s invoice shown on the next page, and also calculates the total in each of these columns for all items on the invoice.
Page 99
Section 8: Programming Basics Pressing the gu keys is not necessary when we do the calculations manually, since in Run mode the result of every intermediate calculation is displayed automatically; but we’ll include u instructions in the program so that the intermediate results AMOUNT and TAX are automatically displayed when the program is executed.

Section 9 Branching and Looping Although the instructions in a program normally are executed in order of their program line numbers, in some situations it is desirable to have program execution transfer or “branch” to a program line that is not the next line in program memory. Branching also makes it possible to automatically execute portions of a program more than once —...
104 Section 9: Branching and Looping Looping If a i instruction specifies a lower-numbered line in program memory, the instructions in the program lines between the specified line and the i instruction will be executed repeatedly. As can be seen in the illustration above under Simple Branching, once the program begins executing the “loop”...

The hp 12c provides two conditional test instructions that are used in programs for conditional branching: o tests whether the number in the X-register (represented by the x in the key symbol) is less than or equal to the number in the Y-register (represented by the y in the key symbol).
Page 108
108 Section 9: Branching and Looping The program line immediately following that containing the conditional test instruction can contain any instruction; however, the most commonly used instruction there is i. If a i instruction follows a conditional test instruction, program execution branches elsewhere in program memory if the condition is true and continues with the next line in program memory if the condition is false.

Section 9: Branching and Looping We’ll key the income into the display before running the program so that it will be in the X-register when the :0 instruction in program line 01 is executed. This instruction will place the test value 20,000 in the X-register and (as explained in Appendix A) move the income into the Y-register.

Section 10 Program Editing There are various reasons why you might want to modify a program you have stored in Program memory: to correct a program that turns out to have errors; to insert new instructions such as ? to store intermediate results or u to display intermediate results;...
Section 10: Program Editing Adding Instructions Within a Program If an instruction is to be added within a program, simply keying it in will replace the instruction previously stored in that program line, as described above; the contents of all higher-numbered program lines remain unchanged. To add instructions within a program, you could simply key in the new instructions, beginning at the proper program line, followed by the original instructions from that program line through the end of the program.
116 Section 10: Program Editing Example: Assuming you have added a - instruction at the end of program memory as in the preceding example, suppose you now wanted to insert an t instruction before the - instruction so that the program will display the amount of the tax before displaying the net income after tax.

Section 11 Multiple Programs You can store multiple programs in program memory, provided that you separate them by instructions that will halt program execution after each program is run and return to the beginning of the program if it is run again. You can run programs after the first one stored in program memory by setting the calculator to the first line of the program using i before pressing t.
Page 121
Section 11: Multiple Programs Example 1: Assuming that program memory still contains the last program from the preceding section (which consisted of 17 program lines), store after that program the office-supplies program from Section 8 (page 88). Since this is the second program to be stored in program memory, we’ll ensure that a i00 instruction separates it from the first program by doing step 3 in the procedure above.
122 Section 11: Multiple Programs Example 2: With the two programs now stored in program memory from the preceding examples (occupying 27 program lines), store the amortization program from Section 9(page 103). Since there are already two programs stored in program memory, we’ll skip step 3 in the procedure above.
Section 12 Real Estate and Lending Annual Percentage Rate Calculations With Fees Borrowers are usually charged fees in connection with the issuance of a mortgage, which effectively raises the interest rate. The actual amount received by the borrower (PV) is reduced, while the periodic payments remain the same. Given the life or term of the mortgage, the interest rate, the mortgage amount, and the basis of the fee charge (how the fee is calculated), the true Annual Percentage Rate (APR) may be calculated.
Page 125
Section 12: Real Estate and Lending Example 1: A borrower is charged 2 points for the issuance of his mortgage.

When calculating declining-balance depreciation it is often advantageous for tax purposes to switch from declining balance to straight-line depreciation at some point. This hp 12c program calculates the optimum crossover point and automatically switches to straight-line depreciation at the appropriate time. The crossover point is the end of the year in which the declining-balance depreciation last exceeds or equals the amount of straight-line depreciation.
