# Present Value calculation - TI BA II Plus Calculator

Posts: 4 Associate
edited March 2017
Hi
I'm studying for L1 in June and have the below questions

How do you calculate this on the BAII plus calculator. 2(1+g)^5=3. I.e. 2 by 1 plus g to the power of 5 is 3 - calculate g?

Also say if you have a bond that pays \$100 pa for 20 years and the discount rate is 10% is there a fast way to calculate the PV? Or do you actually have to do the calculation out manually or would those type of questions be unlike to appear in the exam?

Thanks very much

Sorry in terms of the bond question how would you solve for r the following on the calculator

98 = 10/(1+r) + 10/(1+r)^2 + 110/(1+r)^3

I cant see it in the BA11 manual however it is coming up a lot in my current readings

thanks!
