irutschka My calculator somehow gives 8 as an answer. Anybody has the same?
irutschka Sorry, everything is fine with 10 ;))
cptp I got 9.68, hence 10 is correct.
airborne the answer is 10.0001 everything is OK
Bevin Don't forget to put END in your calculator. I forgot the first time and got 9.68. Once I changed, I got 10.
swinter44 If you're having trouble coming up with the correct answer, check to ensure that you don't have P/Y set to a number other than 1 from a previous question.
uhupong Good reminding Bevin.

Those who set cal with BEG and got 9.68 just got lucky this time.
