Super accurate Free42 « Next Oldest | Next Newest »

 ▼ Tommi Unregistered Posts: 10 Threads: 4 Joined: Sep 2006 09-03-2006, 03:56 AM I tried my old TVM equation in Thomas Okken's Free42 (decimal version) and was surprised it's now more accurate than my real HP42S. Example 1: n=63 i=0.00000161 PV=0 PMT=-1,000,000 END Mode (set B/E=0 in Solver) Solving for FV: HP 42S: 63,000,031.4434 Free42: 63,000,031.4433 (correct is 63,000,031.4433) Example 2: n=31536000 i=10/n PV=0 PMT=-0.01 END Mode Solving for FV: HP 42S: 331,667.006689 Free42: 331,667.006691 (correct is 331,667.006691) The TVM Solver can be found here: TVM Solver for HP42S ▼ Paul Dale Unregistered Posts: 3,229 Threads: 42 Joined: Jul 2006 09-03-2006, 07:07 AM Free42 carries 25 digits in its reals so it would be disappointing to not gain some accuracy. - Pauli Miguel Toro Unregistered Posts: 239 Threads: 55 Joined: Sep 2006 09-03-2006, 09:51 PM Hi Tommi, I am new here and I wanted to thank you for this excellent version of the TVM. This is the one I will always use from now on. I made a modest contribution to the program, just because I do not have enough memory left in my beloved 42s. Here it is : ```00 {78-Byte Prgm } 01 LBL "TVM" 02 MVAR "N" 03 MVAR "I%" 04 MVAR "PV" 05 MVAR "PMT" 06 MVAR "FV" 07 MVAR "B/E" 08 1 09 RCL "I%" 10 % 11 ENTER 12 ENTER 13 ENTER 14 LN1+X 15 RCL* "N" 16 E^X-1 17 RCL* "PMT" 18 RCL ST T 19 1/X 20 RCL+ "B/E" 21 * 22 RCL "PV" 23 RCL ST T 24 LN1+X 25 RCL* "N" 26 E^X 27 * 28 + 29 RCL+ "FV" 30 END ``` And this is another version if you want to take account of the payments per year (à la 10B): ```00 {88-Byte Prgm } 01 LBL "TVM" 02 MVAR "N" 03 MVAR "I%" 04 MVAR "PV" 05 MVAR "PMT" 06 MVAR "FV" 07 MVAR "P/Y" 08 MVAR "B/E" 09 1 10 RCL "I%" 11 % 12 RCL÷ "P/Y" 13 ENTER 14 ENTER 15 ENTER 16 LN1+X 17 RCL* "N" 18 E^X-1 19 RCL* "PMT" 20 RCL ST T 21 1/X 22 RCL+ "B/E" 23 * 24 RCL "PV" 25 RCL ST T 26 LN1+X 27 RCL* "N" 28 E^X 29 * 30 + 31 RCL+ "FV" 32 END ``` Please try it and tell me if there are "bugs".
