Choosing Menus and Reading Menu Maps Below is a menu map illustrating one possible path through three levels of menus: from the MAIN menu to the BUS menu to the MU%C (markup as a percent of cost) menu. There are no menus that branch from the MU%C menu because the MU%C menu is a final destination—you use it to do calculations, rather than to choose another menu.

Notice that the two calculations use the same three variables; each variable can be used both to store and calculate values. These are called built-in variables, because they are permanently built into the calculator. File name : English-M02-1-040308(Print).doc Store 4.60 Store 4.10...
For example, To transfer a value to another menu, do nothing if it is displayed (that is, it is in the calculator line). A number in the calculator line remains there when you switch menus. To transfer more than one value from a menu, use storage registers.
This chapter has introduced some of the built-in menus the calculator offers. But if the solution to a problem is not built into hp 17bII+ , you can turn to the most versatile feature of all: the Equation Solver. Here you define your own solution in terms of an equation.

Time Value of Money The phrase time value of money describes calculations based on money earning interest over a period of time. The TVM menu performs compound-interest calculations and calculates (and prints) amortization schedules. In compound interest calculations, interest is added to the principal at specified compounding periods, thereby also earning interest.
Page 62
The time value of money (TVM) menu does many compound-interest calculations. Specifically, you can use the TVM menu for a series of cash flows (money received or money paid) when: The dollar amount is the same for each payment. The payments occur at regular intervals. The payment periods coincide with the compounding periods.

2) finding the present value (capitalized value) of a lease. Leasing calculations typically use “advance payments”. For the calculator, this means Begin mode because all payments will be made at the beginning of the period. If there are two payments in advance, then one payment must be combined with the present value.
Page 75
13500 & 7500 Example: Present Value of a Lease with Advance Payments and Option to Buy. Your company is leasing a machine for 4 years. Monthly payments are $2,400 with two payments in advance. You have an option to buy the machine for $15,000 at the end of the leasing period.

Interest Rate Conversions The interest conversion (ICNV) menu converts between nominal and effective interest rates. To compare investments with different compounding periods, their nominal interest rates are converted to effective interest rates. This allows you, for example, to compare a savings account that pays interest quarterly with a bond that pays interest semiannually.
The ICNV Menu NOM% EFF% The ICNV menu converts between nominal and effective interest rates, using either: Periodic compounding; for example, quarterly, monthly, or daily compounding. Continuous compounding. Converting Interest Rates To convert between a nominal annual interest rate and an effective annual interest rate that is compounded 1.

Doing Other Calculations with CFLO Data If you would like to do other calculations with cash flows besides those in the CALC menu, you can do so by writing your own Solver equations. There are Solver functions that can access data stored in CFLO lists, and there is a summation function that can combine all or part of the values stored in specific lists.
Bonds The BOND menu calculates the yield to maturity or price of a bond. It also calculates yield to call on a coupon date and accrued interest. You can specify the: Calendar basis: 30/360 or actual/actual (days per month/days per year).

Calculates the interest accrued from the last coupon-payment date until the settlement date, per $100 face value. The calculator retains the values of the BOND variables until you clear them by pressing Clearing sets CALL to 100 and all other variables to zero.
Doing Bond Calculations Remember that values in the BOND menu are expressed per $100 face value or as a percentage. A CALL value of 102 means that the bond will be worth $102 for every $100 of face value when called. Some corporate bonds in the United States use the convention that the price of the bond is set to 100 if the coupon rate equals the yield, whether or not the settlement date is a coupon date.

Page 117
Example: Declining-Balance Depreciation. A metalworking machine, purchased for $10,000, is to be depreciated over 5 years. Its salvage value is estimated at $500. Find the depreciation and remaining depreciable value for each of the first 3 years of the machine’s life using the double-declining-balance method (200% of the straight-line rate).
The ACRS Method To calculate the amount of tax deduction under the U.S. Accelerated Cost Recovery System: 1. Display the DEPRC menu: press 2. Enter the cost basis of the asset and press 3. The Internal Revenue Service publishes tables that list the percentage of an asset’s basis that can be deducted each year of its prescribed life.
Partial-Year Depreciation When the acquisition date of an asset does not coincide with the start of the tax or fiscal year, then the amounts of depreciation in the first and last years are computed as fractions of a full year’s depreciation. Except in SL, the intermediate years are computed as sums of fractions.

In most cases, the calculator finds the desired answer, since there is usually only one solution to the calculation. However, calculating IRR% for certain sets of cash flows is more complex. There may be more than one mathematical solution to the problem, or there may be no solution.
To continue the calculation, you must store a guess. Case 5: The calculator displays: There is no answer. This situation might be the result of an error, such as a mistake in keying in the cash flows.
may be additional positive or negative answers, or no true solution at all. You can continue searching for other solutions by halting the calculation and entering a different guess. One way to obtain a good guess for IRR% is to calculate NPV for various interest rates ( I% ).

Except for the RPN appendixes, the examples and keystrokes in this manual are written entirely using Algebraic (ALG) mode. About RPN on the hp 17bII+ This appendix replaces much of chapter 2, “Arithmetic.” It assumes that you already understand calculator operation as covered in chapter 1, “Getting Started.”...
It identifies keystrokes that are shown in ALG mode and must be performed differently in RPN mode. Appendixes D, E, and F explain how to use your calculator in RPN mode. The mode affects only arithmetic calculations － all other operations, including the Solver, work the same in RPN and ALG modes.
Where the RPN Functions Are Function Name ENTER Enters and separates one number from the next. LASTX Recalls last number in X-register. R ↓ Rolls down stack contents. R ↑ Rolls up stack contents. X < > Y X-register exchanges with Y-register.
The LAST X function ( RPN mode does not affect the MATH menu, recalling and storing numbers, arithmetic done inside registers, scientific notation, numeric precision, or the range of numbers available on the calculator, all of which are covered in chapter 2. Simple Arithmetic Here are some examples of simple arithmetic.

To select RPN mode, press To Calculate: 12 + 3 12 – 3 12 x 3 12 ÷ 3 1/12 You do not need to use keyed-in numbers. Key in both numbers (separated by pressing the operator key. The Power Function (Exponentiation). The power function uses the keys.
RPN Mode 27% of 200 200 less 27% Calculations with STO and RCL The store ( ) and recall ( and RPN modes (see “Storing and Recalling Numbers” and “Doing Arithmetic Inside Registers and Variables” in chapter 2). The keystrokes are the same for simple storing and recalling and for doing arithmetic inside registers and variables.
Page 267
The cube root example and the percentage addition example (previous topics) are two simple examples of chain calculations. For another example, calculate Start the calculation inside the parentheses by finding 12 + 3. Notice that you don’t need to press before proceeding.
RPN: The Stack This appendix explains how calculations take place in the automatic memory stack and how this method minimizes keystrokes in complicated calculations. What the Stack Is Automatic storage of intermediate results is the reason that RPN mode easily processes complicated calculations － without using parentheses. The key to automatic storage is the automatic RPN memory stack.
, the value in the X-register rotates around into the T-register. Notice that the contents of the registers are rolled, while the registers themselves maintain their positions. The calculator displays only the X-register. Variable Stack Size. Clearing the stack by pressing the stack to one register (X) with a zero in it.
function is used primarily to swap the order of numbers in a calculation. For example, an easy way to calculate 9 ÷ (13x8) is to press 13 Arithmetic－How the Stack Does It The contents of the stack move up and down automatically as new numbers enter the X-register (lifting the stack), and as operators combine two numbers to produce one new number in the X-register (dropping the stack).
How ENTER Works You know that other. In terms of the stack, how does it do this ? Suppose the stack is filled with a, b, c, and d. Now enter and add two new numbers: a (lost) replicates the contents of the X-register into the Y-register. The next number you key in (or recall) writes over (instead of lifting) the copy of the first number left in the X-register.
Calculate future sales by pressing Sales for the next 3 years are projected to be $168,000; $336,000; and $672,000. Clearing Numbers Clearing One Number. Clearing the X-register puts a zero in it. The next number you key in (or recall) writes over this zero. There are two ways to clear the number in the X-register: Press <...
Because of the automatic movement of the stack, it is not necessary to clear the stack before starting a calculation. Note that if an application menu is currently displayed, pressing application’s variables. The LAST X Register Retrieving Numbers from LAST X The LAST X register is a companion to the stack: It stores the number that had been in the X-register just before the last numeric operation (such as operation).
This is an advantage the RPN stack has over algebraic calculator logic. Other features of RPN include the following: You never work with more than two numbers at a time.
Exercises Here are some extra problems that you can do to practice using RPN. Calculate: (14 + 12) x (18 – 12) ÷ (9 – 7) ＝ 78.00 A Solution: 14 Calculate: 23 – (13 x 9) + A Solution: 23 ×...
