NPV/IRR Calculator Questions
Hey all, having some issues with my calculator (BA II Plus) with regards to NPV/IRR questions and my booklet isn't helping much with the right order for keystrokes. Here's an example question, can someone help walk me through the proper touch by touch por favor: The financial manager at Genesis Co is looking into the purchase of an aprtment complex for $550,000. Net after-tax cash flows are expected to be $65,000 for each of the next 5 years, then drop to $50,000 for four year. Genesis' required rate of return is 9% on projects of this nature. After nine years, Genesis Co. expects to sell the property for after tax proceeds of $300,000. What is the respective IRR and NPV on this project?-Thanks all

@CFA_redemption_12713 Do you by chance have a correct answer to the question so we can check our work?
I got IRR=6.66% NPV= -$65,169.64
I got these numbers by first using the Cash Flow register (CF) on your calculator immediately above the I/Y button.
CF0=-$550,000
C01=$65,000
F01= 5 (We will receive the identical $65,000 for 5 straight years)
C02= $50,000
F02= 4 (We will receive the $50,000 cash flow for 4 years)
C03= $300,000
F03= 1
Hit the "IRR" button (above payment) and hit 'CPT' to get the IRR of 6.66%.
Hit 'NPV' (above present value), put in 9% for the Interest. Down scroll to read NPV, then hit compute to get -$65,169.64
I hope that i did this correctly and got the answers that the book gave. If I didn't, post the correct answers and I'll try to help figure out where I went wrong. I hope that this helps.

F01= 5 (We will receive the identical $65,000 for 5 straight years)
C02= $50,000
F02= 3 (We will receive the $50,000 cash flow for 3 years)
C03= $350,000
F03= 1
The question mentioned that it will sell the property for $300k after the 9th year which is when it receives the last payment of $50k hence it should be $350k instead of $300k.
So the NPV should be -$53,765 and IRR should be 7.015%.
