Nathan I find it's easiest and fastest to work these problems by first entering 1.06<sup>5</sup>. On the TI BAII+ that's 1.06 [<i>y<sup>x</sup></i>] 5 . Then I multiply by 125 to get the final answer. It's faster than using the TVM registers and you should memorize these TVM formulae.
Indira Using TI BAII
1.06 {yX} 5 * 125.
Metalpro I am using TA BA II calculator. I am getting the negative answer whenever i calculate the answer. Dose any one knows why this happen?
Kaloyan To Metalpro: This is because you input the PV of 125 with a positive sign. Try with -125 instead. It is the logic of the calculator. Remember: money you pay (savings, retirement...) are written with a -. Money you get (loan, salary..) come with a +.
