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].

### How to use irr function in it?

As you can easily verify by reading the user's guide this calculator does not have a financial utility, so you cannot calculate the Internal Rate of Return (IRR). Sorry to disappoint you.

### Casio fx-991ES, how to calculate NPV and IRR

At a blank screen, enter your IRR formula in terms of the variables using ALPHA and ')' for variable X. For example: -1000 200/((1 X)^1) 200/((1 X)^2) ... rest of subsequent years. Then, press CALC. It will prompt you to enter values of your variable (X in this example). Don't worry if there's already a value displayed - this is just the most recent value that has been stored as that letter. Simply enter your value (in terms of your IRR guess) and then press [=]. You will have to repeat this for each IRR guess until you reach almost ZERO.

### Excel 2007

The IRR function is provided by Excel so you can calculate an internal rate of return for a series of values. The IRR is the interest rate accrued on an investment consisting of payments and income that occur at the same regular periods. In the values provided to the function, you enter payments you make as negative values and income you receive as positive values.
For instance, let's say you are investing in your daughter's business, and she will make payments back to you annually over the course of four years. You are planning to invest \$50,000, and you expect to receive \$10,000 in the first year, \$17,500 in the second year, \$25,000 in the third, and \$30,000 in the fourth.
Since the \$50,000 is money you are paying out, it is entered in Excel as a negative value. The other values are entered as positive values. For instance, you could enter –50000 in cell D4, 10000 in cell D5, 17500 in cell D6, 25000 in cell D7, and 30000 in cell D8. To calculate the internal rate of return, you would use the following formula:
=IRR(D4:D8)
The function returns an IRR of 19.49%.
The ranges you use with the IRR function must include at least one payment and one receipt. If you get a #NUM error, and you have included payments and receipts in the range, then Excel needs more information to calculate the IRR. Specifically, you need to provide a "starting guess" for Excel to work with. For example:
=IRR(D4:D8, -5%)
This usage means that the IRR function starts calculating at –5%, and then recursively attempts to resolve the IRR based on the values in the range.
