    Hey, I am trying calculate amortization for mortgage loans, all the steps seem right as I go along but my answers always come out short between 2-12 dollars short. (I have tried the test & resetting the calculator, and the max amount of decimals are set to avoid rounding)
    HERE'S AN EXAMPLE:
    $55,000 mortgage / interest rate/ 11%; amortization 25 years with monthly payments
    Here is what I am inputting..should the interest be put in differently I am wondering?
    12 then orange shift then P/YR
    25 then orange shift then xP/YR
    11 then L/YR
    55 000 then PV
    0 then FV
    PMT

    FV? Answer: $1100 correct.
    ex 2)Same ques. as above...Ans: 1,008.33 ??

    Where is the CPT button or how to get CPT? - I am dealing with simple discount rate, number of periods problems and need this button for calculations.

      CPT is not a button. If you're calculating a rate, it will probably tell you to press "CPT I/YR", and this means press I/YR to get your answer

    Hi all, May someone tell me how i can set the HP 10bII+ calc to calculate to the exact decimals. It converts all decimal interests to whole numbers which is making the comparison of interests so difficult.

      Orange shift key, = (button), n (where "n" is 0..9). If you entered 5, it would display 5 positions to the right of the decimal.
