Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

### How to calculate the cost of equity

final value = principal value x (1+I)^n
I= interest rate for n say 10% it would be 0.10
if n= 1 year then interest rate if
one year interest rate so if 5 years n= 5
if interest rate is monthly then divide year int rate by 12
and increase n by 12 so 5 years equals 60 terms of interest calculation.
cost of equity would be pv + pv * CPI
if CPi was 2.5% as an example
cost of equity for year one= PV + (PV * 2.5/100)
fv = pv*(1+2.5/100)^1
if cpi is different each year then
fv= pv1(1+2.5/100)^1 + pv1(1+cpi2/100)^1 + pv1(1+cpi3/100)^1
If CPI is same for each year then FV = PV (1+0.025)^number of years.
^ 2 is like squared

### How do i calculate interest on a R20000.00 loan at 13% for 5 years on teh sharp el738f calculator

Hi there,

First make sure all previous amounts stored are cleared by pressing 2nd F MODE.
Then type in the original value 20 000 and press PV.
Type in the interest 13 and press I/Y.
(If i assume that the interest is compounded yearly my calculation is more simple)
press 5 and N

(If I assume that the interest is compounded monthly, i need to input a little bit more data into my calculator)
Press 2nd F I/Y (to get to payments per year) and press 12 and ENT. Press ON.
Then press 5 and 2nd F N and then press N again.
Now calculate FV by pressing COMP FV which should give you - 38 177.13.

Take this value and subtract the PV from it to get the amount of interest earned.

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.

### We are not obtaining the correct answer when computing the I/Y. The problem is N=30, PV=-500, PMT = 0, FV = 10000. We are getting 126.01

Since you didn't specify what result you were expecting, I can only guess at what you want.

The answer is correct assuming 12 periods per year. To have 500 increase to 10000 in 30 months, you need an annual interest rate of 126%. For a more realistic result, set the number of periods per year to one by pressing 1 SHIFT [P/YR] then repeat the calculation. This will produce 10.5% for the annual interest rate.

Alternatively, if the interest is compounded monthly, specify 360 for N. This will give a value closer to 10% annually, compounded monthly.

### What buttons do I push in what order to figure compound interset. if I start with\$15,000.00 at 6% interset for 25 years. I am on a texas instrument ba 2 plus

If the interest is compounded monthly:

2nd [CLR TVM] (clear any existing results)
1 5 0 0 0 _/- PV (present value, negative because you're paying it out)
6 I/Y (annual interest rate)
25 2nd [*P/Y] N (25 years)
CPT FV (compute future value, see 66,974.55)

If the interest is compounded annually:

2nd [CLR TVM] (clear any existing results)
1 5 0 0 0 _/- PV (present value, negative because you're paying it out)
6 I/Y (annual interest rate)
2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER 2nd [QUIT] (one compounding period per year)
25 N (25 years)
CPT FV (compute future value, see 64,378.96)

### How long will it take wendys \$4000 investment,

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).

### Tvm_I%

I'm going to make up an example so this is easier to answer.

Ex: You have a bond with a price of \$987, with a coupon of 1.5%, which matures in 10 years.
To do this problem:

[APPS] [1] [1]

What comes up on screen:

N=
I%=
PV=
PMT=
FV=
This is all the stuff that you really care about.

Now, add in the info you know from the equation. Put in a 0 if you don't know the number for that part.

This is what it should look like:
N=10
I%=0
PV=-987
PMT=15
FV=1000

Now, cursor back up to the I%=0 part.
Highlight the '0' that you had in there from before.
[ALPHA] [ENTER] ----> notice above the enter button it says in green lettering "solve", this is what you are trying to do.

Yay! Your caluculator has now figured out the interest rate!
it should say:
I%=1.642027191

Notes:
1. Make sure your payment is set at the end of the period (this is just the standard so you probably don't want to mess with it.) Scroll down to the PMT: END BEGIN part and make sure the END is highlighted.

2. This example used annual coupon payments. The p/y and c/y business is used for when you have semi-annual payments or semi-annual compounding (or daily, or hourly etc). You can use this feature, or you can just adjust the payment and periods
(ie: if this were a semi-annual coupon bond, the N would be 20 and the pmt would be 7.5)

### PV and FV problem, result not like in manual

You have the payments-per-year set to 12. For this pair of problems, it needs to be set to 1.
Press 2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER.
