Question about Texas Instruments BA II PLUS Financial Calculator

# Hi, I am using my BA I Plus to do the following cal.: N = 6 I=7 PMT = -42000 FV = -700000 this is a problem about bond. Couple days ago, when I entered the above input, I get the same as the textbook PV = 666,634. However, when I used the cal. today, the output is 922,926.52. I tried many times and I cleared TVM and CLR work, still getting 922,926.52. I do not know what is going on with the cal. could you please help me? thanks!

Check the number of payments per year. With one payment per year the present value is 666,634, while with twelve payments per year the present value is 922,926.

You probably changed it while working out another problem.

Were you also clearing the financial memory with 2nd [CLR TVM], or just the storage memory? If you don't, it's going to keep using whatever value you last used for PMT.

### Haveing trouble getting the IRR using the BA II plus advanced business analyst. i am punching in the pv, fv, plus/minus pmt, and n. them computing the I. keeps giving me the wrong figure. The pv is 0, fv=...

I get 6.085%. Make sure the fv and pmt are of opposite signs. You're either making annual payments and getting a lump sum back at the end, or receiving annual payments and then paying it all back in a lump at the end. Either way, the money is moving in opposite directions.

### Mortgage payment

what numbers are you putting in? For example, I just plugged in
N=360 (12m/30y)
I/Y = .5833 (7/12m)
PV = 200000
FV = 0 (it will be paid off)
PMT = 1,330.6050
The only thing I could offer is that perhaps you forgot to enter one of the variables...?
