### How to calculate npv

Hi there,

To calculate present value you need to type in all the other missing values and then press COMP and PV.
For example: if the future value is R5000, the interest is 12% p.a. compounded monthly and it paid over 3 years.
Type in 5000 and press FV
type in 12 and I/Y
Press 2nd F and I/Y and make sure P/Y says 12 (for 12 payments per year).
Press ON
press 3 press 2nd F N and then press N again (for 36 payments in total). Make sure your screen says ANS -> N otherwise the calculation will not work.
Now if if your payments are 0 (in other words you are not making monthly payments) then press 0 and PMT,
Otherwise, if you are making monthly payments for e.g. R200 a month, type in +/- 200 PMT.
Now calculate your original amount by pressing COMP PV.
And if you chose to add payments your original amount should be
2 526.88.

### What is CPT on TI Calculator

"ComPuTe". On TI financial calculators you have to press the CPT button before pressing the button for the value you're solving for. (N, I, PV, PMT, or FV). On an HP calculator, you just press the N-I-PV-PMT-FV button without making any entry in order to solve for the desired value.

### Hello I bought the Texas Instruments BA 2 plus,how to change 2 fin mode?there is no mode button.

The calculator has different worksheets.
To access TVM worksheet, press [2nd] and any TVM key : N, I/Y, PV, PMT or FV
To enter Amortization worksheet, press [2nd][AMORT]
To access Cash Flow (problem with unequal cash flows) Press CF, or NPV, or CPT or IRR
To access BOND worksheets press [2nd][BND]
For depreciation worksheets press [2nd][DPR]
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.

### Err:no sign chng

If you were trying to find the roots (zeros) of an algebraic equation with the solve( command or the interactive solver you might have supplied an interval where the function is always positive or always negative. If the expression is always of the same sign on an interval, the interval does not contain a root.
• If you extend the interval, the procedure may not converge fast enough and the calculator may not find the solution.
• Abetter way to do it is to sketch the graph of the function and use the graph to choose a reasonable interval that extends on both sides of the root, and a better initial guess.
If you were doing some financial calculations,
• You attempted to calculate the I% variable when FV, N*PMT, and PV are all positive, or all negative.
• You tried to calculate Irr( when neither CFlist, nor CFO is positive
• You tried to calculate Irr( when neither CFlist, nor CFO is negative

### Sharp EL 738 Financial Calculator TMV calculation

Hi there,

Firstly, can i recommend resetting the calculator (There is a reset button on the back). (Or in general press 2ndF MODE to clear all the saved data).
Set your MODE to BEGIN by pressing 2ndF FV.
press 180 N
press 9 i/y
press 2ndF I/Y - press 12 ENT (this puts in your compounding intervals).
Press on
press +/- 35 000 PV
press 446 659 FV
Press COMP PMT.
This should give you the answer of -819.23 as expected :)

### 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.

### Computing N in a TVM calculation (receive Error 5 message)

Hey,
Apparently you can't have both FV and PV positive. Try the calculation with one of them being negative.

### Getting wrong PV

PV=1,077,202 while FV=1,000,000 ? I wonder somebody will lent me \$1,077,202 and accept to get back \$1,000,000 in 10 years later.
Your example's got prob, guy !

### Simple loan payment

Are you putting 30x12=360 for N? Since you have monthly payments, you have to compute it a little different. Also, you have to find the effective monthly interest rate. 1.0575^(1/12) = .4669839%.

Another way is to enter 30 for N and 5.57 for I/Y, and change P/Y to 12.

Hope this helps!

### I do not have the directions and need to figure out how to calculate mortgages.

Here is the link to a guide;

http://www.buec.udel.edu/bowersh/finc311_F04/Documents_f04/Quick%20Guide.pdf
Set PV=-\$100,000
[2nd] P/Y= 12.00
N= 12 x 30 = 360, (i assume it's 30 Y amortization)
I/Y = 5.75%
FV = 0
[CPT] PMT

Hope this helps
