monroe 8125 A calculator like no other From the first name in calculators
monroe 8125 Hands On
monroe 8125 Be prepared to be amazed. Be prepared to see what no other printing calculator made can do. Be prepared to feel your jaw drop.
monroe 8125 Lets add two columns of figures. One entry in the first column needs correction. Find the total of both columns Find the correct item count for both columns. Find the average of all entries made.
The Problem Simple Invoice Solve for extensions and total invoice. ItemsCost (credit) 6.00 (freight)
The Problem The local tax rate is 7.5% All items sold must have tax added. Store the tax rate and find the selling price after tax for an item which costs $
The Problem The company requires a tape to be attached to all work product, i.e. checked invoices etc. Each tape must show the date and time the work was done. Store automatic date/time, then time stamp work.
The Problem Add two columns of figures Find total for each column Invoice Tax
The Problem Now that basic 2 column addition has been mastered, it’s time to expand the feature. Right ColumnLeft Column Total both columns, then find combined total
The Problem Three items are sold with a sales tax of 8.25%. Item Cost Find amount of tax for each item, total cost of all items, total taxes and the total of both.
The Problem You are auditing 3 receipts. Shown is the total amount with tax added. Receipt Find the total cost of the items including tax, the amount of tax and total cost of the items before tax was added.
The Problem Two errors were made while listing a column of figures. 11 should have been 12 and 6 was left out. Correct the listing and find the new total, then print a corrected tape. Original Listing
The Problem Throughout the day, I provide financial planning advice to my clients. Show me how to calculate Payments on a loan Amount to borrow with a fixed payment How to find a rate if payment and amount are known How to find a different term How to find the future value of my savings
The Problem The hotel I work for has numerous foreign visitors. As a service we provide currency conversion for Euro, GBP and JPY. I need to be able to convert these currencies. I’d be willing to load new rates each day if they change.
The Problem Where I live, there are several tax rates. Most calculators only have the ability to calculate one rate. Show me what you can do!
The Problem I work in retail and often apply multiple discounts to sale items. There is also a tax rate here in this city. Show me a way to make my life easier and cut down on the mistakes I make.
The Problem I’m a payroll clerk and I have to find the number of hours and minutes worked from our employee time cards. Also, there are times when I need to calculate the days between two dates, figure out a future or past date. Help!
The Problem I’m the sales manager for my company. My job is to establish selling prices, calculate and maintain margins. As a management tool, I regularly review changes in sales period over period. Show me a simple way to do my job.
The Problem I like having a second memory on my calculator. I admit I probably don’t use the features that would eliminate my need for the second memory, but for me, it’s just what I’m used to. Show me what you’ve got.
The Problem I want to find a calculator that will provide a total for both the columns and rows, you know a spreadsheet. If you were as old as I am, you’d call it crossfooting. After I have those totals, I’d like to analyze the data in different ways. No one has been able to solve my problem, can you?
The Problem I work with hours and minutes frequently. Show me a good calculator to make this task a breeze.
Okay, I’m sold. Now dazzle me!!!!!!!!!!!!! ∑m Sigma M stores results obtained from the = key, % key, elapsed time key and any of the five definable tax keys into memory I automatically. Let’s put it to work on our payroll problem, then the tax problem.
Thank You The Monroe 8125 is remarkable, and you’ve seen only a snap shot of the many tasks it’s designed to perform. It is unique and unmatched within the calculator market.
