Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

NPV stands for Net Present Value. Using this scientific calculator, you must utilize a formula to calculate net present value.

For example, if we want to find out what the net present value of $10,000 is using a 4% annual interest rate for 10 years. In other words, what amount do we have to invest today for 10 years assuming we get a 4% annual interest rate.

NPV=10,000(1+0.04)^-10

To do the exponent, use the ^ key.

Good luck.

That question is much more complicated than you think - are you charging interest percentage daily? Weekly? Monthly? Anually? Once you have the period figured, you begin at some start point of your choosing. Exactly one "period" later, you multiply the basis (the outstanding balance) by the percentage rate (5%, for example, would mean you multiply by 0.05), then add that number to the basis - that's your new basis, your new outstanding balance.

But... if you charge an annual interest rate, and you compound daily or weekly or monthly, you have to take payments into account and adjust for them - it's fair to charge interest up to the moment of payment, but not beyond that moment; you can rightly only charge interest on the remaining unpaid balance beyond that date.

If you charge an annual interest rate but compound monthly, then every month you'd charge 1/12 of your annual interest rate. If weekly, 1/52. If daily, 1/365. The smaller the compounding period, the easier it is to calculate interest around payments, but the more paperwork is involved.

With simple interest, there is no compounding. To earn 2200.50 interest in six years, you need to earn 2200.50/6 = 366.75 each year. In order to earn 366.75 at 10.5%, you need a principal of 366.75/10.5% = 3492.86.

If the interest is compounded annually then you only need to invest 2682.13.

A=P(1+i)^n, where P is the Principal, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

A=10,000(1+0.075)^3, assuming the interest is compounded annually

For 30 years, we would replace the number of period 3 with a 30.

Good luck,

To get $500,00 four years from now, how much must you invest today, assuming an annual interest rate of 4%?

A=P(1+i)^n, where A is the amount, P is the principal or initial investment, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

500,000 = P (1+0.04)^4

500,000/(1.04^4) = P

P = $427,402.10

Good luck,

But how often is the interest applied, yearly or monthly? If yearly, then the last 3 months don't earn anything at the 29 mo point. So $27624.

If applied monthly the usual trick is to simply divide the yearly rate by 12 = 1.32% per mo. So after 29 mo, $30132

Invest R10000 in a bank investing at 14% compounded twice a year.

A = P(1+i)^n, where A is the amount, P is the principal or initial investment, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

If the annual rate is 14%, the semi-annual rate is 7%. One year is now composed of 2 6-month periods.

So after one year, we have A = 10 000 (1.07)^2 or 11,449.

Good luck,

A = P(1 + r/q)nq is the formula you use. first write it all out, where P is the principle or $5000, r is the rate of 6%, q is the times per year so it would be 12 if done monthly, and n is how many years which would be 10. hope this helps.

Press APPS and select the Finance app. Select the TVM Solver.

Enter -4000 for PV, 0 for PMT, 6000 for FV. Be sure you use the (-) key for PV, not the - key. P/V and C/Y should both be 1 and PMT should be END.

If you want 5% annual interest compounded month, enter 5/12 for I%. If you simply want 5% annual interest, enter 5 for I%. Go to N and press ALPHA ENTER to see the number of periods (months or years according to what you entered earlier in this paragraph).
