(42S) Interest Rate Conversion
This program acts like the interest rate conversion menu in the 17BII, but simplified into a single menu that does both periodic and continuous compounding.

The program displays five menu items:

NOM% - Enter or compute nominal interest rate.
EFF% - Enter or compute effective interest rate.
P/YR - Enter or view number of compounding periods per year, and switch to periodic compounding.
PER - Switch to periodic compounding.
CON - Switch to continuous compounding (P/YR is ignored in this mode).

To use:

Enter a nominal or effective interest rate and press the appropriate NOM% or EFF% key to store the value. Enter the number of compounding periods per year, and press P/YR, or press CON for continuous compounding. (These two steps can be performed in either order).

Press NOM% or EFF% to calculate the corresponding interest rate.

Example:

What is the effective interest rate for a Canadian mortgage with a nominal APR of 3.8%?

3.8 [NOM%]
2 [P/YR]
[EFF%] = 3.8361

What is the nominal rate of a US mortgage that is equivalent to this effective rate of 3.8361%?

Continuing from the previous example:

12 [P/YR]
[NOM%] = 3.7703
