How do we solve for x using Algebraic notation on HP 12c? This is to calculate EAR /suppliers’ trade credit.

Or is it not so probabilistic to do that kind of problem-solving in Level 1?

From first principles:

x = (100/99)^(365/16) - 1 = 0.25769

On the BA II (should be similar to HP12C):

P/Y=C/Y=1

N 0.04384 PV -99 FV 100 CPT I/Y 25.76857
