Question about Sharp EL-738 Scientific Calculator

# Multiple IRR Using the Sharp EL738 how do I find the IRR (25% and 400%) for the following cash flows CF(0) -800; CF(1) 5000; CF(2) -5000. I have tried the following steps but can not get the second rate (400%). ie -800 [ENT] 5000 [ENT] -5000 [ENT] 395 [I/Y] [2ndF] [CFi] [COMP] I always get the first rate of 25%. Help

Hmmm, I don't think the problem is with your calculator. I'd be checking the accounting question again as I don't think you've got your annuity question structured right.

4 Year Annuity
14% Annual Interest Rate
Your contributing \$4,000 per year over the next 4 years
and you already know the future value is \$50,069?

You'd have to make annual payments of \$11,878.93 (4 of them) at that annual interest rate to get to a future value of \$50,069 (which has a present value of \$43,632.24).

Are you sure that the FV isn't the trade in value at the end of the 4 years?

I belive this will fix the problem i was sitting here having the same deal waiting and waiting..then bam error 7 then i fixed it so thought i would put what i did.

go into your CF and delete all the unused CO times..for instance if your using 3 periods...delete all CF05 and F05 the last one should be C04=0 and F04=0 make sure your NPV is the same after messing around..then try to compute IRR popped up in 2 seconds for me.

word hope this helps u all ***420*** :0

### Casio te 2400 How to download Z tape to Compact Flash Card

Found this on another website. I have not tried it to verify, but it sounds reasonable:
http://www.baystatepos.com/CasioTE-2400spec.html

Insert a CF FLASH CARD into the front of the register before taking a "Z" report. Turn the manager's key to Z1 and press CASH AMOUNT TENDER to issue a BATCH report of all sales activity, which prints from the register's receipt printer. This report information is also automatically written to the CF Flash Card capturing the register's terminal number and date of the report. This data is formatted as a "TXT" file and can be open with Microsoft EXCEL. Use EXCEL to combine multiple register totals. Create historical report data and e-mail the reports to corporate or to district managers. Saves time and reduces transposition errors.

Use the CF Flash Card to save the entire register program before moving the register to a new venue where it can be reprogrammed in a flash with the new menu.

For statistics, use [2nd][DATA], or [2nd][STAT].
There are other worksheets [2nd][Delta%], [2nd][DATE], [2nd][PROFIT], [2nd][BRKEVN],[2nd][MEMory].

These shortcuts will not get you anywhere if you do not consult the manual.

### How to Calculate IRR?

To calculate IRR and NPVEnter the cash flows as follows, remembering the sign convention:
• Clear previous data by pressing fXY and fCLX.
• Enter the cash flow at time zero using # gPV [# CF0].
• Enter subsequent cash flows using # gPMT [# CFj].
• If a cash flow is repeated, enter the number of times it is repeated (including the first time you just entered) using # gFV [# Nj]. For example, three equal flows in a row would be entered as3 Nj.
• When you have entered your last cash flow:
• If you are calculating an NPV, enter your interest rate as # i (consistent with interval between cash flows) followed by fPV [NPV].

• If you are calculating an IRR, enter fFV [IRR].

I did not come up with this solution. Just found it for you.

### Why do i get error 5 when trying to compute IRR

Error 5 indicates that no solution exists. In an IRR problem, the most likely cause is that there was not at least one sign change in the cash flow list.

### Calculating out npv and irr

Are you using the finance app?

[APPS] [1] [ENTER]

For NPV, choose "7:npv("
Then use:
npv(interest rate, cost {cash flows}, {frequencies of cash flows})

For IRR, choose "8:irr("
Then use:
irr(interest rate, cost {cash flows}, {frequencies of cash flows})

### Calculating out npv and irr

Use the "FINANCE" app:

[APPS] [1] [ENTER]

for npv: select "7:NPV"
now you should get "npv(" on your screen.
use: npv(interest rate, cost {cash flows}, {frequencies of cash flows})

for irr: select "8: irr"
"irr(" will come up.
use: irr(interest rate, cost {cash flows}, {frequencies of cash flows})
