TVM calculations work better when using the lists in that state mode and using L# (# meaning the number of lists to link the command) as described on page 251.
A complete manual is available at the website education.ti.com under the TI-84 support section.
Before using any TI-84 series manuals, make sure that you have the correct manual that applies to your operating system. Some manuals (and textbooks) have been modified for mathprint use and some have not. It is advised to use the TI-Connect software to update your calculator to the current operating system that supports mathprint whenever possible.

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})

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.

### When I try to graph a negative quadratic function I get ERR:SYNTAX what to do

Could you post the function you're trying to plot? Please give the exact sequence of keys you used to enter the function.

If I had to guess, I'd say you're using the "-" key when you should be using the "(-)" key.

### 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'm receiving the message ERR: DATA TYPE 1:Quit 2:Goto I'm receiving this when I try to do stat in L1, L2, L3, and L4

Hi,
If you want to know exactly where there is an error press the 2:Goto and the cursor will take you there. The message is clear: Some data you input is not of the right type.
Since you do not say much about what it is you are trying to do statistics on, I for one cannot guess. I suggest you press the STAT key and select 5:SetUpEditor then press ENTER.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

### I can't open any progrmas on my TI-84Plus , it only gives : Error and 1:QUIT can you experts help me?THNX

Hello,
You should give the whole error message.
I created a bogus program and archived it.
Then I tried to execute it. I got the messages: ERR Archived 1:Quit 2:Goto. When I tried to edit it I got ERR:Archived 1:Quit.

Your program is archived. You must unarchive it.

To Unarchive. Press [2nd] [MEM][2:Mem Mgmt/Del] [ENTER]
Scroll down to [7:Pgrm]. Archived programs will have a star at the left. Highlight the program you want to unarchive and press [ENTER]. The asterisk disappears. Press [2nd][QUIT]. Your program is ready to run or to be edited.

Hope it helps.
