Changing the Calculation Mode After viewing the default settings, suppose you want to change the calculation mode from Chain to RPN. See Table 1-2. Table 1-2 Changing the Calculation Mode Keys Display Description :u Opens the Mode menu, starting with first setting option, FIX, the number of digits displayed to the right of the decimal point. <<< << Scrolls to the current setting for the calculation mode, Chain. (Press five times) II Selects RPN as the active setting. Note the RPN annunciator to the right. (Press two times) O Exits the Mode menu and returns you to the default calculator screen. Key Presses, the Shift Key, Secondary, and Tertiary Functions* To execute the function associated with a key, press and release the desired key. However, most of the calculators’ keys have more than one function: the first, or primary function, the shifted, or secondary function, and, in some cases, a third, or tertiary function (see Figure 2). * Tertiary functions do not apply to the HP 20b. 4 Basic Features • The primary function is printed on the top of the key. • The secondary function is printed on the bevel of the key. To activate the secondary function of a key, press and release • : followed by the key with the secondary function printed on the bevel. The third, or tertiary functions are printed above specific keys on the keyboard. To activate the tertiary function of a key, press and hold : and simultaneously press the key below the printed function. Release both keys. Black S Tertiary function: (press SHIFT and the function key simultaneously) B Primary Function Shifted (secondary) Function Figure 2 Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Key Functions In this manual, key symbols of the commands are provided throughout the manual so you can follow along with the examples. • • The primary functions are represented by the key symbol with the primary function. :, followed by the key with the secondary function. For example, to execute sine, press :p. Note how the SIN The secondary key functions are represented by the shift key symbol, portion of the key is highlighted, while the 7 is grayed out. This highlighting focuses on the function of the key that will be activated in a given command. • Commands with a tertiary function are represented by the shift key symbol, :, followed by the term (HOLD), followed by the key with the tertiary function. For example, to activate the Black-Scholes feature shown above, press When :(HOLD) B*. : is active, the down arrow annunciator appears on screen, indicating that the next key pressed will execute the secondary function of the key. To cancel an accidental press of :, simply press : a second time. Key commands for example problems are provided throughout the text and in tables. Key symbols are placed in the order they are to be pressed, from left to right. * Does not apply to the HP 20b. Basic Features 5 Annunciators Annunciators are symbols that appear in the display as messages, or after certain keys or key combinations have been pressed. Annunciators are special symbols indicating a specific status in the calculator. Figure 3 illustrates the annunciator symbols in the display. Secondary function active Valid item for the Valid item for Input key the Equals key Low batteries Number recall active Assigned value RPN mode active Begin mode active Radians active 360 day-count calendar active Number storage active Figure 3 Annunciator Symbols in the Screen Display The Input Key I key is used to input values for variables and execute menu items. The I key is also used in Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) mode to enter a number on The the stack or duplicate it. The Equals Key = key is used at the end of a mathematical operation to calculate the final result. For example, 1+2= returns a final result of 3. The = key, when pressed outside of a mathematical operation, also allows you to request The a calculation for the value of an item. This request only applies to items that can be calculated. Using the Input and Equals Keys Suppose you wanted to calculate the effective interest rate for a 12% nominal interest rate with 12 payments per year in the Interest Conversion (IConv) menu. To open the IConv menu, press :&. Nom %= displays on the top line, and the current value assigned to the nominal 6 Basic Features interest rate is displayed on the bottom line. With this screen displayed, press 12I to input a new value for the nominal rate. Press < followed by = to calculate the value for the effective rate. See Figure 4. Figure 4 = When an item for which the key is valid displays, the small annunciator (=) is displayed on the top line at the right of the screen. Do not confuse this small annunciator (=) with the larger annunciator (=) found to the right of a variable. I When an item for which the key is valid displays, the INPUT annunciator is displayed on the top line at the right of the screen. Editing and Clearing Entries The On/CE Key O Pressing one time cancels current number entries, mathematical operations, or a menu selection, in that order. O Pressing repeatedly when performing multiple operations cancels one operation at a time, from the latest to the earliest. The Reset Menu The Reset menu allows you to reset some, or all, of the menu items, variables, and registers to their default values. :x < > . TVM displays on the top line. Press or To open the Reset menu, press repeatedly to scroll to a specific item. To validate a choice and reset the selected items, press I. Press O to cancel. If you select the command to reset the cash flow (Cash Flow), statistics (Stats ), programs (Prgm)* or all values (All ) items, you will be prompted to confirm your choice. At the Del. All?, Del. Data?, Del. Prgm?*, and Del. CF? prompts, press again to confirm the reset, or I O to cancel. While working within a specific menu, pressing :x takes you directly to the item of the Reset menu that allows you to reset that specific menu. For example, if you are working in the Bond menu and you wish to reset all your entries in the Bond menu, with any item of the Bond menu displayed, press :x. Bond displays I on screen. At this prompt, pressing resets the Bond menu and returns you to the last item you were working with in the Bond menu. * Only applies to the HP 30b. Basic Features 7 Notes about Special Menus The Mode, Memory, Math and Reset menus are unique menus; they allow you to work in another menu simultaneously without having to exit. For example, if you were working in the Bond menu prior to entering one of these menus, pressing O to exit returns you to your previous work in the Bond menu. Memory and the Memory Menu The Memory menu contains the following items: memories 1–9 (Mem 1–9) and 0 (Mem 0), Cash Flow, Statistics (Stats), programs (Prgm)*, and Memory. To enter the menu, press :t. Press < or > repeatedly to scroll through the items starting with memory 1 (Mem 1). When a memory item is displayed, you can key in a new number and modify the value of the memory by pressing I. For more information about storing and recalling numbers, refer to the section titled, Storing and Recalling Numbers in Chapter 2. The Cash Flow and Statistics data share the same memory and are limited to a combined total of 50 memory slots. The number displayed with Memory refers to the number of remaining memory slots. When the cash flow or statistics items are displayed, a number also appears on the bottom line. This number indicates the number of memory slots used by the cash flow or statistical data. 290 bytes are available for programs. The Prgm* menu item displays the number of bytes used. I on the Cash Flow, Statistic, or Prgm* menu item to erase the associated data. Press Since entering data in these menus can represent a significant amount of work, you will be asked to confirm your choice. At the Del.Data?, Del. Prgm?*, or Del.CF? prompts, press I to confirm, or O to cancel. Accessing Menus and Menu Maps Many of the calculator's functions are located within menus. To access a menu, press the key, or secondary-function, key combination for the menu in which you wish to work. To exit a menu, press O. For example, to access the Break-even menu, press * Only applies to the HP 30b. 8 Basic Features : . < or > repeatedly. In most menus, when you arrive at the last item in a menu, pressing < returns you to the first item. Similarly, pressing > once on the first menu item scrolls to the last Once opened, you can scroll through the items in the menu by pressing item in the menu. Most items consist of two parts: a name and an associated number. For example, the Fixed item in the Break-even menu (Figure 7) is displayed in Figure 5. Figure 5 The large (=) annunciator shows that the value assigned to Fixed is 120,000. For example, if you perform a calculation with the operating mode set to RPN with this item displayed by pressing 1I2+, Fixed is still selected as the current item, but the large (=) annunciator is now turned off, indicating that the 3 is not the value assigned to Fixed (see Figure 6). Figure 6 At this point, to return to the display of the Fixed menu item shown in Figure 5, press O. I with that menu item displayed opens the sub-menu. Once the menu sub-menu is open, use > and < to navigate through the items of the sub-menu, unless otherwise directed. Some menus have sub-menus. If an item represents a sub-menu, pressing In this manual, diagrams called Menu Maps are included at the beginning of each section to assist you with navigating through the menus described in that section. For an example of a menu map, see Figure 7 below. Once opened, use the > and < keys to navigate through the menu items of the Break-even menu. The downward arrows in the map indicate you press < to scroll to the next item. If a press of the I key is required to open a sub-menu, the word INPUT appears in the arrow(s). For examples of menu maps with submenus, see chapters 10-12. The return arrows direct you to the next item displayed after the last item in a menu. For example, in Figure 7, pressing < on the last item in the menu returns you to the FIXED item. Basic Features 9 :P Fixed Cost Price DWN Profit Quantity Figure 7 Menu Map of the Break-even menu There are four types of menu items: 1. Read/write. Read/write menu items, such as Fixed in the Break-even menu shown above, are easily recognizable, because when they are selected, both the INPUT and small (=) annunciators are lit. When lit, these annunciators indicate that keying in a number and pressing = I will store the entered number in the displayed menu item. Pressing (outside of a mathematical operation) calculates the value for that item based on available data. 2. Read-only. Read-only items such as Internal Rate of Return (IRR% ) in the IRR menu are display-only; they are values computed internally by the calculator. 3. Write-only. Write-only items, such as investment interest rate (Inv. I% ) in the Net Present Value (NPV) menu, are similar to read/write items in that the INPUT annunciator is lit when these items are selected, indicating that keying in a number and pressing I stores that number in that menu item. However, the = key does not calculate a value for that item. 4. Special items. Special items, such as the Degree/Radian option in the Mode menu, the items of the Reset menu, and the items of the Percent Calculation (%calc ) menu perform an action when I is pressed. Depending on the menu, this action can be the selection of a sub-menu (%calc), changing a mode or setting (Mode menu), or erasing data (Reset menu) 10 Basic Features 2 Mathematical Calculations Mathematical Functions Mathematical functions are located: • • • +-*/, etc. On shifted, or secondary functions, such as, :p In the Math menu, :s On keys, such as, Number Entry and Display Numbers are entered by pressing: • • • • 0–9 The decimal point . The } key The :w keys Numbered keys, To correct a number entry, press the backspace key, digit or symbol you entered. {. Each press of { erases the last To enter a number in the display, press the number digits successively. A number can have up to 12 digits. To change the sign of a number from positive to negative, press }. Use scientific notation to enter very large and very small numbers. For example, to enter the number 1.23x 10127 in scientific notation, first enter the mantissa (1.23) and then press :w and enter the number (127) representing the exponent. The exponent must have a value between –499 and +499. If an expression has more than 12 digits, or if an operation returns a result with more than 12 digits, the calculator automatically displays scientific notation. Figure 1 Scientific Notation in FIX=2 Mode Mathematical Calculations 11 Chain Mode Calculations in Chain mode are interpreted in the order in which they are entered. For example, entering the following numbers and operations as written from left to right, 1+2*3=, returns 9. See Figure 2. Figure 2 Calculation in Chain Mode +-*/, after =, the calculation is NOTE: if you press an operator key, continued using the currently displayed value. In Chain mode, if you wish to override the left to right order of entry, use parentheses (D to prioritize operations. For example, to calculate 1 + (2 x 3), you may enter the problem as written from left to right, with parentheses to prioritize the multiplication operation. See Table 2-1 below. Table 2-1 Simple Arithmetic Calculations in Chain Mode Keys Display Description Sets operational priority, inputs numbers, and multiplies 2 and 3. 1+ (2*3D Adds 1 to 6 and returns 7.00 on the bottom line as the final result. = Algebraic Mode To set the calculator in Algebraic mode, refer to the section titled, The Mode Menu: Setting Preferences in Chapter 1. In Algebraic mode, multiplication and division have a higher priority than addition and subtraction. For example, in Algebraic mode, pressing 1+2*3= returns a result of 7.00. In Chain mode, the same key presses return a result of 9.00. In Algebraic mode, operations between two numbers have the following priority: y x) • Highest priority: the power function ( • Second priority: combinations and permutations • Third priority: multiplication and division • Lowest priority: addition and subtraction 12 Mathematical Calculations For example, key in 1 + 2 x 5 nPr 22 in Algebraic mode by pressing: 1+2*5:b2:m=. The result is 241. NOTE: the calculator is limited to 12 pending operations. An operation is pending when it is waiting for the input of a number or the result of an operation of higher priority. Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) Mode To set the calculator in RPN mode, refer to the section titled, The Mode Menu: Setting Preferences in Chapter 1. In RPN mode, numbers are keyed in first, separated by pressing I or =, followed by an operation key. NOTE: pressing I or = is optional after keying in a number, if the next key pressed is an operation. Each time you press an operation or function key in RPN, the answer is calculated immediately and displayed. For example, suppose you wanted to add two numbers in RPN, 1 and 2. Press 1I2+. The result, 3.00, is calculated and displayed immediately on the bottom line along with the (+) symbol on the top line. I = NOTE: in RPN mode, when you are in a menu for which or are valid, pressing these keys enters the number, but it also performs the action associated with the key for the menu item, which is generally saving the number in the variable or calculating the item's value. The RPN Stack RPN works by placing numbers in storage registers called the stack. The RPN stack has four levels numbered 1– 4. The levels are stacked on top of one another. See Figure 3. Stack Level 4 -15 Stack Level 3 12 Stack Level 2 41 Stack Level 1 23 Figure 3 The RPN Stack Mathematical Calculations 13 In Figure 3, the stack contains four numbers, 23, 41, 12, and –15. Each level (1– 4) contains one number. When a number is typed and entered into the stack by pressing I, this new number is "pushed" into level one of the stack, and each number already in the stack moves up one level. The number in Level 4, –15, is pushed out and is lost. + ) for instance, the calculator When an operation is performed on the stack, addition ( "pops" or moves the two numbers from the bottom levels (Levels 1 and 2) out of the stack, performs the operation, and "pushes" the results back into the stack. + With the numbers entered into the stack as shown in Figure 3, pressing changes the stack as shown in Figure 4. Note that when the numbers are "popped" out to add 23 and 41, Level 4 of the stack remains unchanged. -15 -15 12 64 Figure 4 The RPN Stack of Figure 3 Shown After the Addition Operation Last Number Each time you perform a mathematical operation, the content of Level 1 of the stack is saved. Pressing :d recalls that number. This functionality can be used to undo an erroneous key press, or if you want to reuse a number, such as 56.123 in the expression: ( 1.23 + 56.123 ) -------------------------------------( 56.123 ) See Table 2-2 for an example using the last number function. 14 Mathematical Calculations Table 2-2 Last Number Keys Display Description Sets FIX= to 3.000 :u3I Selects RPN as the operating mode. <<<< < II Inputs 1.23 and 56.123 O1c23 I56c 1 23 Adds 1.23 and 56.123, then divides the sum by the last number, 56.123. Returns results in the selected display format. +:d/ For more complex problems requiring two or more operations, you do not need to enter parentheses to set operational priority. Key in numbers and operations inside the parentheses first, followed by those outside of the parentheses. If a problem has more than one set of parentheses, start by working with the operations and numbers in the innermost parentheses and work out. For example, calculate: (3 + 4) x (5 + 6) One way to calculate this problem is to key in the numbers and operations within the parentheses first, followed by the operation outside of the parentheses. See Table 2-3. Mathematical Calculations 15 Table 2-3 Simple Arithmetic Calculations in RPN Mode Keys Display Description Inputs the numbers and the operation in the first set of parentheses. Intermediate results are displayed. Note the (+) and (RPN) annunciators. 3I4 + RPN Stack Previous Value Previous Value Previous Value 7 Inputs the numbers and the operation in the second set of parentheses. Intermediate results are displayed. Note the (+) annunciator. 5I6 + Previous Value Previous Value 7 11 Finishes the operation and displays the results. * Previous Value Previous Value Previous Value 77 Pressing I or = when you are not entering a number duplicates the number on Level 1. That is, the number on Level 1 is pushed on the stack, making Levels 1 and 2 equal. In the example above, pressing I after * duplicates 77 on the stack, making Levels 1 and 2 equal. See Figure 5. 16 Mathematical Calculations Previous Value Previous Value 77 77 Figure 5 Duplicating a Number on the Stack (D ( In RPN, the parentheses keys manipulate the stack.

The Probability Sub-menu Lower Tail Normal Distribution (LTND) calculates the probability for a normally distributed, random variable to be less than the input. Inverse Lower Tail Normal Distribution (LTND-1) is the inverse function for LTND; it calculates the value (V) for which the probability of a normally distributed, random variable to be less than V is the given input. Student, Inverse Student, Chi2 ( χ 2), Inverse Chi 2, F-Distribution and Inverse F-Distribution perform similar operations for Student, Chi2, and F-Distributions. Student, Chi2, and F-Distribution and their inverse operations are special cases, as they require more than one number as input. Student and Chi2 require (N), the number of degrees of freedom, and F-Distribution requires (N1) and (N2), two degrees of freedom. To perform Student and Chi2 operations or their inverse: 1.

These memories are :$, followed by the key representing the memory number. To recall a number stored in a memory, press L numbered from 1–9 and 0. To store a number in a memory, press followed by the key representing the memory number. You can use the store and recall functions for these memories any time a number is displayed, or when you wish to enter a number. 15:$1. To recall the number in memory 1, press L1. For example, to store 15 in memory 1, press You can also perform operations to numbers stored in memories. For example, press 5:$2 to store 5 in memory 2. To add 12 to the value of memory 2, press 12:$+2. Later on, during a calculation, you can press L2 to recall memory 2. Note how the current value now stored in memory 2 is 17, (5 +12). +-* and / are valid mathematical operations for memories. To view the stored values in memories 1–9 and 0, press :t, followed by < > or repeatedly to scroll through each memory starting with memory 1 (Mem 1). Note that in the Memory menu, you can change the value of any memory by selecting the memory and typing a number followed by the t key. Recall Arithmetic L+2 In RPN, typing adds the value of memory 2 to the first level of the stack, but it will not modify the stored value of memory 2. This is useful, as it "saves" one stack level. You can also use -* and / after L. Storing and Recalling with Time Value of Money (TVM) Keys To store the current number in the Time Value of Money (TVM) variables, press followed by the desired TVM key. To recall the stored value of a TVM variable, press TVM variable. Note: pressing :$ L followed by the key of the desired L does not calculate the variable; it recalls the current value. 24 Mathematical Calculations Recalling a Menu Item Value in a Menu In a menu, you can recall the current value of a menu item. For example, open the Interest Conversion menu (IConv) by pressing :&. With Nom.% displayed, pressing 2*L== calculates 2 times the nominal rate. This feature is useful when you need to insert the contents of a menu item into an algebraic operation. Recalling and Storing Values in the Data and Cash Flow Menus If you store an index (i) from 0 to 99 in the variable 0, you can then use the store/recall features to store a number in the Data and Cash Flow menus. Press either followed by the CashFlow key :$ or L, C, to either store or recall a number, as desired, in the CF(i/2) (if i is even) or #CF((i-1)/2) if i is odd. In addition, you can store or recall x(i/2+1) if i is even, or y((i+1)/2) if i is odd, as desired, by pressing the Data key :y instead of the CashFlow key, C, as shown above. Rounding Numbers All calculations are performed internally with 15-digit precision and are rounded to 12 digits when returning the results. In certain instances, calculations are performed internally with greater than 15-digit precision. When displayed, a number is further rounded to the number of digits after the decimal point set by the FIX item in the Mode menu. The default setting is two digits to the right of the decimal point. For more information, refer to the section titled, The Mode Menu: Setting Preferences in Chapter 1. NOTE: the FIX setting only affects the display; it does not affect the actual numbers. Percentages In Algebraic or Chain modes, pressing % divides a number by 100. For example, pressing 25% returns 0.25. To find a percentage of a given number, key in the number and multiply it by the desired =. For example, to find 25% of 200, press 200*25%= to return a result of 50. percentage, followed by To add or subtract a percentage of a number, key in the first number, followed by + or - and the percentage followed by %. Finish your calculation with =. For example, to add 10% to 50, press 50+10%= to return a result of 55. Mathematical Calculations 25 % In RPN mode, the key calculates x % of the number on Level 2 of the stack, when x is the number on Level 1 of the stack. It does not modify the number on Level 2 of the stack, and thus allows you to perform addition or subtraction after pressing from the number. % to add or subtract x % 200I25% returns 50, but 200 is still on Level 2 of the stack, and pressing - returns 150, or 200-25%. For example, 26 Mathematical Calculations 3 Time Value of Money The examples in the following sections are calculated with the Mode menu preferences in their default settings, unless otherwise noted. For more information about basic features and setting preferences, see Chapter 1, Basic Features. Time Value of Money (TVM) Keys Cash flow diagrams are useful tools for analyzing financial situations, as they help you identify the TVM functions needed to resolve your problem. A cash flow diagram is a drawing with a set of vertical arrows arranged on a horizontal line. The horizontal line represents the period of time from the beginning of the financing to the end. The vertical arrows represent the money or cash flows at certain times throughout the period. The arrows' length is proportional to the cash flow amount each arrow represents; a longer arrow indicates a larger amount, a shorter arrow, a smaller amount. Each arrow's position on the line represents the time at which the cash flow occurs. The orientation of the arrow, up or down, represents the "direction" of the cash flow: up for money received, down for money paid out. See Figure 1. (PV) Loan amountmoney received is positive (Beg) (End) For payments occurring at the beginning or end of the compounding period Q (P/YR) Payments per year PMT 1 PMT 2 (PMT) Amount paid out in equal payments at regular intervals PMT 3 PMT 4 PMT 5 PMT 6 (N) Number of payments or compounding periods (FV) Final loan value (if any) Figure 1 Cash Flow Diagram Example with Corresponding TVM Keys The TVM functions of the calculator can solve problems with at least one cash flow, and problems in which all the cash flows, except the first and last, are of the same value. To solve other types of cash flows, refer to Chapter 4, Canadian Mortgages: TVM Canada, or Chapter 5, Cash Flows. Time Value of Money 27 Figure 1 illustrates a cash flow diagram and how the data in the diagram corresponds to the TVM keys.

Table 3-6 Interest Rate Conversion Example Keys Display Description :& Opens the IConv menu, starting with the current value of the nominal percentage rate 36. 5I Inputs 36.5 as the nominal percentage rate. > Scrolls to compounding periods per year, C/YR. Default value is 12. 360 I Inputs 360 as the value for the number of compounding periods per year. >= Scrolls to the variable for the effective rate and calculates it. A 36.5% nominal rate compounded daily equals an effective rate of 44.02%. Note: in TVM Standard, C/YR is the same number as P/YR in TVM calculations, since most interest calculations are based on the same number of payments and compounding periods per year, and interest rate conversions are commonly linked to a subsequent TVM calculation. This feature is provided for your convenience, but this means modifying one number also modifies the other when you are calculating in TVM Standard. The IConv menu permits you to solve for C/YR, but the result is not always a positive integer. TVM calculations, however, require C/YR to be an integer larger than zero. If you attempt to perform a TVM calculation without a valid value for C/YR or P/YR, an invalid P/YR error (ER: Invalid P/YR) will occur. If you set C/YR to 0, the resulting interest conversions are calculated assuming a continuous compounding. As stated above, 0 is not a valid value for P/YR or C/YR when used in TVM calculations, and you will have to reset it to a valid value before performing TVM calculations.

To exit the menu, press O once again. displayed press 34 Time Value of Money 4 Canadian Mortgages: TVM Canada :[ P/YR DWN C/YR Figure 1 The Menu Map for the P/YR Menu In Canada, interest rates for mortgages are, by law, given as a nominal interest rate, compounded twice yearly. This means that the compounding period for the per-period interest rate calculation differs from the compounding period when payments are made. By default, the calculator performs calculations assuming that the number of compounding periods always equals the number of payments per year. You can, however, enable the TVM Canada option in the Mode menu, which enables you to select the number of compounding periods per year. For more information, refer to Chapter 1, Basic Features. To open the P/YR menu, press Canada enabled: :[. Note the following change in features with TVM 1. The P/YR key opens a menu with two items: P/YR and C/YR in which you can specify the number of payments and compounding periods per year. See Figure 1. 2. In the Interest Conversion menu, the C/YR item is the same value as the C/YR item in the P/YR menu, and it no longer affects P/YR. However, note how if you now change the value of P/YR, the calculator automatically sets C/YR so it equals your new value assigned to P/YR. This means that if you modify P/YR, you also need to modify C/YR, if P/YR and C/YR are different values in your TVM problem. Canadian Mortgages: TVM Canada 35 Canadian Mortgage Example Calculate the monthly payment for a 25-year (N=300) Canadian mortgage valued at 350,000.00, if the nominal interest rate is 6.0%, compounded twice yearly (C/YR=2) with 12 payments per year (P/YR).

Each pair represents one or more cash flows in a cash flow diagram. As with TVM problems, it helps to sketch a cash flow diagram as a first step in solving cash flow problems. For some examples of cash flow diagrams, see Figure 3 at the end of this chapter. CF(n) represents the monetary value of the cash flow; #CF(n) is the number of consecutive occurrences of that cash flow. By default, #CF(n) is equal to 1, as most cash flows occur only once. However, in cases where a cash flow is repeated multiple times, using #CF(n) instead of entering the cash flow value multiple times saves calculation time and memory space in the calculator. To enter a cash flow list, press C to open the cash flow menu. For each cash flow item, first enter the monetary value followed by number of occurrences followed by I. If a cash flow occurs once, you do not need to type or I, then enter the 1I. Simply press I < as 1 is the default. Cash Flows 37 To erase a cash flow list, with any cash flow displayed press :x. The number of cash flows in the list is displayed on the bottom line, along with Cash Flow=. At this prompt, press I. You will be asked to confirm your choice. Either press I to confirm the reset, or O to cancel. Table 5-1 lists the keys used for cash flow problems. For a cash flow example, see Table 5-2.

Press < or > repeatedly to scroll to view the items. To change the value of the displayed item, key in a number and press An option is a contract between two parties giving party A the option to buy or sell an asset from/to party B at a given price. The Black-Scholes model is used to calculate an estimated fair market price for that option, meaning that it calculates the fair price that someone would pay to buy or sell the option to later buy or sell an asset at a given price! The asset or stock that the option refers to is often called the “underlying asset.” The Black-Scholes calculation is based on the contract terms (i.e., the price and date at which the underlying asset can be sold or bought), the quality of the asset itself, its price, volatility and return on investment, and the other available alternatives, such as storing your asset in a safe investment account, for example. Intuitively, if the option is to buy a stock at 10, and the stock is already worth 30 and has little volatility, the value of the option is close to 30-10=20, plus or minus other risk factors. Table 71 lists the Black-Scholes menu items along with their descriptions. 52 Black-Scholes Calculation Menu* Table 7-1 Item Description Stock price (input) Current underlying asset price Strike price (input) Predetermined price at which the option agrees to buy or sell the underlying asset at maturity. Time to maturity (input) Time remaining until expiration of the option in years. Risk free% (input) Current risk-free interest rate (for example, the current US Treasury Bond rate). Volatility % (input) Degree of unpredictable change of the stock price. This is usually approximated by the standard deviation of the variation of the stock price. Dividend % (input) Estimation of the average dividend yield of the stock as a percentage of its price. Call price (output) Estimated fair market value for a call option at expiration (a call option is the right to purchase the asset at a given price). Put price (output) Estimated fair market value for a put option at expiration (a put option is the right to sell the asset at a given price).

Brief descriptions of the methods used to calculate depreciation are provided in Table 11-1. Table 11-2 describes the items found in the depreciation sub-menus. For an example calculating depreciation using the straight-line method, see Table 11-3. Table 11-1 Depreciation Methods Depreciation Method Description Sline Straight line is a method of calculating depreciation presuming an asset loses a certain percentage of its value annually at an amount evenly distributed throughout its useful life. SOYD Sum-of-the-years' digits is an accelerated depreciation method. In SOYD, the depreciation in year y is (Life-y +1)/SOY of the asset, where SOY is the sum-of-the-years for the asset, or, for an asset with a 5-year life, 5+4+3+2+1=15. DecBal Declining balance is an accelerated depreciation method that presumes an asset will lose the majority of its value during the first few years of its useful life. DBXover Declining balance crossover is an accelerated depreciation method that presumes an asset will lose the majority of its value in the first few years of its useful life, but that it will revert to a consistent depreciation during the latter part of its life, which is then calculated using the straight line method. French SL Straight line French. This method of depreciation is similar to the Straight line method, except an actual calendar date in mm.dd format is entered in for Start= to indicate when the asset was first placed into service. Amort F French amortization. This method is an accelerated depreciation method with a crossover to the French Straight Line method. 66 Depreciation Table 11-2 Depreciation Menu Items Item Description Life The expected useful life of the asset in years. Start Start refers to the date or month in which the asset is first placed into service. Depending on the type of depreciation, this can be the month (1-12), or, in the case of French Straight-line and Amort F, the actual date in the selected format. Note: for non-French depreciations, if the asset was placed into service in the middle of March, for example, enter 3.5 for Start. Cost The depreciable cost of the asset at acquisition. Salvage The salvage value of the asset at the end of its useful life. Factor The declining balance factor as a percentage. This is used for declining balance and declining balance crossover methods only. Year Year for which you want to calculate the depreciation. Depreciation Depreciation in the given year. R.Book Value Remaining book value at the end of the given year. R.Depreciable Value Remaining depreciable value at the end of the given year. Depreciation Example A metalworking machine, purchased for 10,000.00, is to be depreciated over five years. Its salvage value is estimated at 500.00. Using the straight-line method, find the depreciation and remaining depreciable value for each of the first two years of the machine's life. See Table 11-3.

If you are unfamiliar with the basics of programming, you may have trouble understanding some of the following information. Reviewing the material and practicing the concepts illustrated below will help you understand how this feature works on the HP30b. The HP 30b Business Professional is a powerful business calculator, but it may lack a function important to you. The HP 30b programming functions allow you to create up to ten programs to fulfill your needs. In order to keep the calculator keyboard clear and consistent, the programming functions are not written on the keyboard. However, included in the calculator package, you should find an overlay which shows the programming functions. This is designed to be placed on the top surface of the calculator and left in place for the life of the calculator. If you are interested in programming the calculator, you will need to place the overlay on your keyboard before getting started. Key Presses for Program Instructions : followed by E. The instructions specific to programming (illustrated on the overlay) are inserted by pressing : and simultaneously Enter the Program menu by pressing pressing the key with the desired programming instruction. Then release both keys before pressing any additional keys for your program. In the following chapter, this combination is represented in the following manner: (HOLD) This sequence is identical to using the shift key on a computer keyboard to invoke the shiftedfunction. For reference, the table on the following page lists the keys along with their associated programming instructions. Programming 75 Table 13-1 Programming Key Instructions (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) Equal to Not equal to Less than Less than or equal to Greater than or equal to Greater than (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) GOTO GOTO if True GOTO if False Label Stop (HOLD) (HOLD) Display Run/Stop (HOLD) (HOLD) Decrement, Increment, skip if skip if : >or< (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) Debug Call Return Message Solve All programming key combinations listed in the above table require you to press the key and (HOLD) it while simultaneously pressing the desired program instruction. The instructions are described in more detail in the following pages. Almost any function you perform with the calculator can be programmed. A program allows you to repeat an algorithm or sequence of commands without having to retype all the keys each time you want to use that particular function. 76 Programming Programming Example The following programming example, and all examples in this chapter, were written with Chain or Algebraic set as the operating mode. Since a program executes the keys exactly as if you were manually pressing them, the current operating mode affects how the program executes. If you normally operate in RPN, verify your operating mode is set to either Chain or Algebraic before proceeding so you can follow along with the examples below. For more information about setting the operating mode, refer to the section titled, The Mode Menu: Setting Preferences in Chapter 1, Basic Features. 4 3 The volume of a sphere is represented by the equation, --- πr . We will create a program that 3 can calculate the volume of a sphere without having to retype all the keys each time you wish to calculate the volume of a given sphere. Verify your FIX setting is set for three digits to the right of the decimal point. For more information on the FIX setting, refer to the section titled, The Mode Menu: Setting Preferences in Chapter 1, Basic Features. Table 13-2 Keys Display Description :E Enters program mode. The first program is selected. I Starts editing program 0. Note the counter shows your current position in the program. :h3* 4/3* :sI I= :(HOLD) We have entered a program that takes the currently displayed number, raises it to the 3rd power, and multiplies it by 4/3 of PI. The STOP instruction tells the calculator that the program is ending. Note that to enter that special instruction, you need to press and hold the shift key, then press the L key (STOP) before releasing both keys. Programming 77 Keys Display Description Quits program editing mode. Note that program 0 uses 13 bytes and has a checksum of 104. Checksum is a number that verifies the program data is correct. You must be set in FIX 3 or higher to see the full checksum. If your number does not match that shown, verify your FIX setting is set for 3 or higher. If three digits are showing and the number differs from that shown, the program has been keyed in incorrectly. :E Enters the number 5 (the sphere radius) and executes program 0. The result, the volume of the sphere, is 523.6. We press 5== = twice: the first press completes the entry of the 5 (after all, we could have been in the process of entering an equation, such as 5*2). The second press runs the program. Program Step 0 Programs start at step 1, however, if you edit a program by pressing program displayed and press the up key I with the >, you will find there is a step 0. Press any key with step 0 displayed and that key becomes a shortcut for the program. You may also assign any : (HOLD) key combination as well. For example, with the sphere example shown in Table 13-2, after your program has calculated the solution, press :E to open the program menu once again. Prgm 0 is displayed, Figure 1 the program used for the sphere example (Figure 1). Press I, followed by > to :followed by k(assuming you are not interested in using the k key). Exit the program by pressing O, key in a number, 5, and then press :k and you will see the your program was executed with the same results as shown select step 0. Press in the table! 78 Programming :(HOLD) function on that key, the standard function will be executed by pressing the :(HOLD) option of that key. This way If you assign a program to a shift key and there is no you still have the option of using the standard shifted function of the key should you need it. Press O to clear your screen before the next section. Reassigning Menu Functions Often, the best use for a program is to bring a function you use frequently out onto the keyboard. For example, if you use SIN frequently, you may want to have ASIN available directly on the keyboard as well. Having the ability to assign keys permits you to do this easily. Table 13-3 below illustrates how to reassign a menu function to the keyboard. Table 13-3 Reassigning Menu Functions Keys :E >I :sI :(HOLD) < = Display Description Opens Program menu. Scrolls to step 1 of Program 9. Press the keys to enter the steps of the program. Note: to enter the scroll down command as an instruction, you must press and hold : and the < key as shown. :(HOLD) <> :(HOLD) O.5 Scroll to step 0. The ASIN function is now assigned to the SIN key. Exits the program menu, keys in .5, executes the program and returns results for ASIN. :(HOLD) Programming 79 The Program Menu and Program Editing Now that we have been through some short examples, let us look at some of the programming details. The Program menu displays a list of the ten programs that are in the calculator. Use the > < keys to scroll through the program menu. For each program, the number displayed and at the bottom is the memory space used/occupied by the program and a checksum value of that program. For example, program 0 for the sphere uses 13 bytes and has a checksum of 104 (see Figure 2). Figure 2 There are 290 bytes of program space available. :x ) from outside of program To erase all the programs, open the Reset menu (press mode. In the reset menu, select Prgm. The number at the bottom of the display represents the amount of programming steps in use. Press I twice to erase all programs. To erase a specific program, go to the program menu, select the program with the < or > keys, and press :xI to erase that specific program. To execute a program, select the program in the program menu and press =. To edit or modify an existing program, select the program in the program menu and press I: 1. 2. 3. < or > keys. Delete the currently displayed instruction by pressing {. Exit the program by pressing O or :E. Review your program by pressing the 4. Any other key that you press will be inserted as an instruction in the program. >, <,O, or { instruction by pressing : (HOLD) and >, <,O, or {. 5. Insert an Note: you can to a specific label. 80 Programming (HOLD) (HOLD) followed by a label number to go Tests and Jump Functions When creating a program, there is often a need for the conditional execution of an instruction based on a specific condition, as well as the repetition of a set of instructions. This is handled on the HP 30b using the GOTO, LBL (label) and Test instructions. LBL is an instruction that does not do anything by itself, but it acts as a marker for Jump instructions. : and simultaneously press the To enter a label or GOTO instruction, press and hold GOTO, GOTOT, or GOTOF key, then release both keys. 2. Type a number between 00 and 99 (for numbers smaller than 10, you must type the 0 first, such as 03). 1. 3. For example, (HOLD) creates label 03 in your program. You can then use a GOTO 03 instruction to jump to that label from any location in your program to the position of the label. GOTOT (Go To If True) and GOTOF (Go To If False) will only jump if the current displayed number is non-0 (true) for GOTOT or 0 (false) for GOTOF. Used together, these instructions allow you to create programs like the following: 8= LBL 01 DISP 5 - 1= GOTOT 01 STOP Use the following keystrokes to enter the program: (HOLD) 1. 2. (HOLD) (HOLD) 3. 4. (HOLD) . This program has 13 bytes, and the checksum is 234. This program counts from eight to zero displaying each number 1 second. Programming 81 Note: • • • Label numbers must be unique. Only one label with a given number can exist in the calculator. You can jump from one program to another if you know that there is a specific label number in another program. Use the tests ? , ? , ? , ? , ? and ? (the top row of keys) to verify if two numbers are equal, different, and strictly, or not strictly, greater or smaller. These are dual operator-operands and are used in the same way as addition or multiplication ( in Algebraic and Chain modes, number1 ?= number2 =, and in RPN mode, number1 I number2 ?= ) are used, in that they return 0 if false, and 1 if true. Note that in RPN mode, the tests do not remove the arguments from the stack, but do push a 0 or 1. Long Programs and Battery Life Although it is possible to create programs on the HP 30b that can run for a long period of time (calculating PI to 700 decimal places, for example) this is not something that we advise, as it will drain the batteries in less than a day. Programming on the HP 30b was designed to create small programs to perform a function not present in the calculator, or to automate a task requiring many keystrokes and then run relatively quickly. If a program takes more than one second to run, the CPU speed will be reduced in order to preserve battery life. Sub-Function Call It is often useful in a program to have the option to reuse a sub-program from various locations. To avoid having to retype these sub-programs each time they are necessary, you can use the (HOLD) and (HOLD) functions. CALL, followed by a label number, will jump to the specified label, in the same way a GOTO instruction does, but, when the RETURN instruction is encountered, the program will continue execution just after the CALL function. This is equivalent to you temporarily pausing in an activity to answer a phone call, and then returning to your prior activity after the call. Up to four calls can be nested at the same time. Another way to picture this might be going to turn off your stove, while you are answering the doorbell that rang while you were answering your phone, while you were writing an email… it's hard for us, but computers are good at stacking tasks in this way. Enter a call function the same way you enter a GOTO function. 82 Programming Other Programming Functions (HOLD) DISP: takes a number that represents 1/5 of a second. DISP5 is thus one second. (HOLD) STOP: Stops the execution of the program. This instruction should be placed at the end of every program. (HOLD) R/S: Pauses the program execution and returns to the normal system. You can then resume program execution by pressing again. This can be used, for example, when you need to enter a number. (HOLD) DSE ( ) and (HOLD) ISG ( ), followed by 1 digit (0 to 9): Loop control function. Place a number of the form ccccc.eeeii where cccc is the counter, eee is the end value for the counter and ii is the increment in variable 1. For example, DSE 1 will decrement the counter part of the variable by ii (if ii is 0, it decrements by 1) and, if cccc is less or equal to eee, it will skip the next instruction (usually a GOTO). For example, to loop from 0 to 50, incrementing by 3 each loop, use 0.05003 as start the value and the ISG instruction. The following program will loop from 0-50, incrementing by 3 each loop and pause shortly at each loop to show the counter. At the end, it will leave 12 with a blinking cursor. Once in Program mode, select an unused program number and press: .05003:$1 (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) (HOLD) This program has 22 bytes, and the Checksum is 146. Programming 83 Messages The MSG function is used to display messages on screen; it is especially useful when used before halting the program with (HOLD) , as it allows you to display messages on the screen for the user. To enter a message while creating a program: Press :(HOLD) . Release both keys. You can now enter messages. In this mode, you may press > or < to select a character and : (HOLD) > < to jump 10 characters at a time. Once you have found the desired character, press t to validate and move to the next character. Press { to remove the last character. or There are also shortcuts for commonly used characters: • 0-9 selects the corresponding numeric character • . selects ? • = selects = • /*+- are shortcuts for the corresponding mathematical operator signs • } selects space Once the character appears, press t to validate. Press O to exit message entry. If you want to modify a message that has been entered in a program, select the message and press :(HOLD) message mode. As an example using the message mode, let’s return to our sphere calculation program: 1. :EI opens the Program menu, and you are now at step 1 of Program 0. To insert a message at step 1 and push everything else down, simply begin editing at step 1. If you want to delete the current step, press 2. Press 84 Programming :(HOLD) . {. > 3. Press until the letter R appears, and then press screen should display a ?. 4. Press Oto exit. 5. Press : (HOLD) . Then press I. Press . and the Oto exit. 6. Now enter program mode again by pressing :E. The display will show R? in video inverse. Since program 0 has a message as the first command, it is now named R?. The video inverse signifies that it is assigned to a key, in this case 7. k. Press Oto exit. Now press :k. Notice R? appears, and the program pauses to wait for input. 5= Type and press calculates the volume. : (HOLD) to resume. The program continues and Debugging a Program At times, programs do not work as expected. You can debug your programs by pressing the : (HOLD) > or : (HOLD) < keys as follows: Open the Program menu and select the program you want to debug. To execute the first : (HOLD) <. Press this key combination repeatedly to execute your program one instruction at a time. The current instruction is displayed as long as the < instruction, press key is pressed. If you want to see the next instruction without executing it, press : (HOLD) > in the same manner. If you want to let the program continue by itself, press : (HOLD) . If you want to start debugging a program in the middle, place a run/stop (R/S) instruction where you want to start debugging the program, run the program and start debugging using : (HOLD) > or < when the program stops due to the R/S. Programming 85 Saving, Restoring, and Modifying Mode Settings Often, programs are designed to run in a specific mode (for example, FIX 4 or RPN). You can L:u to recall the current mode, save it, modify the settings, either by going in the menu, or using the $:u function and then restoring it. For example: use 1. 2. 3. L:u$1 recalls and stores the current mode settings in Memory 1. :u4IO selects FIX=4. Your program: L1:$:u restores the mode settings to what they were at the beginning of the program. 4. Lu returns a 12 digit number: CactdmrvAOff. See Table 13-4 for a description of each digit. Table 13-4 Digit Description A is “1” for radian mode, “2” for degree mode. a is “1” in Semi-annual mode, “2” in Annual mode. C is “1” in Standard TVM mode, “2” in Canadian TVM mode. c is “1” in Actual day count mode, “2” in 360 day count mode. d is “1” if the decimal separator is “.”, 2 for “,” ff is “00” to “11” or “13” and indicates the FIX setting (13 is for FIX=-1). m is “1” for “mm.ddyyyy” mode, “2” for “dd.mmyyyy” mode. O r is “1” for Chain mode, “2” for Algebraic mode, and “3” for RPN mode. defines the regression line type. “1” for a*x+b, “2” for a*ln(x)+b, “3” for b*e(ax), “4” for b*xa, “5” for b*ax, “6” for a/x+b and “7” for ax2+bx+c. t is “1” if thousands separators are not visible, “2” if they are visible. v is “1” for 2 variable statistics, “2” for 1 variable, and “3” for 1 variable frequency. :$:u, any illegal value is ignored and this setting will not When using change. For example: 314:$:u will switch to RPN mode. No other setting will change. 86 Programming Solve The solve key is not programmable, but it is a powerful addition to the calculator functionality. The solve function utilizes HP Solve, a feature unique to HP calculators, which allows you to find a number for a variable that will cause a program to return a 0. This can be used to solve complex equations. For example, if you want to solve xx-y=0. 1. :E<<I (select and edit program 2) 2. L1:hL1-L2= (HOLD) (enter program var1var1 -var2=) O to exit. Store 3 into variable 2 by pressing 3:$1. Press :E and note that Prgrm 2 is selected, as the calculator displays the program 3. Press that was last edited. For verification, this program has 11 bytes, and the checksum, 199. : 2 4. Press (HOLD) to solve for variable 2. The calculator will attempt to find what value in variable 2 would cause the program to result in 0. In this case, the result is 27. 10:$2 5. Now store 10 into variable 2: . Since Prgrm 2 was the last program selected in the program menu, you can use the SOLVE feature directly. Press :(HOLD) 1 to solve for variable 1, such that the result of the program is 0. The result this time is 2.506184..., since you stored 10 into variable 2. 6. You can verify this is correct by pressing see that 10 is returned.
