To use the program simply enter the interest rate, it's compounding periods, and the compounding periods you want to convert to and press R/S. If you are converting from or to a discount rate, enter the compounding period as a negative number. If you are coverting from or to a continous rate, enter 0 as the compounding periods.

Example 1: 10% interest rate, compounded monthly to the equivalent rate compounded semi-anually.

10 ENTER
12 ENTER
2 R/S
