None of the HP financial calc's with which I am familiar (I own the 12C, 10B, and 17Bii) have trigs -- maybe the 19B/ii?
Yes, the HP19BII not only has a complete TRIGS set with DEG/RAD selection (no GRAD angle mode), but also hyperbolics and inverses, polar<->rectangular conversions, nCk and nPk, ex-1 and ln(1+x).
Is there any practical application of trigonometric functions for business/finance?
This I cannot answer, but HP offered other SciFi calculators (Scientific & Financial, not Science Fiction :), being HP27 (woodstock) and HP27S (Pioneer), both with trigs and the like amongst financial resources. What for? I don't guess, but I'd like to know as well.
