BA Finance Pro
BA Finance Pro is an emulator of the TI BA II Plus. It is built with the same layout, functions and
algorithms of the original. If you are a student that is required to have one for class or if you are
a finance or real estate professional that is already familiar with the BA II Plus you will feel at
home with this calculator.
All time value of money variables are continuously displayed to give you confidence in your
problem setups. Results can be reviewed, annotated and forwarded to clients using the built in
electronic audit tape via mail. The display has been optimized for viewing on iPhones and
iPads.
The contents of the calculator and worksheets are preserved between computing sessions. If
you are interrupted by a phone call or leave to work in another application, the next time you
start BA Finance Pro it will be restored to the state where you left off.
Bonus Features
The iPhone and iPad have more processing power and memory than a hand held calculator so
several enhancements were added:
• Built in user manual with sample problems
• Converter mini application including up-dateable currency rates
• Electronic audit tape with mail capability
• LOG, 10ˣ, π, E
• Both iPhone and iPad versions in one application
• High resolution images for iPhone4

FAQ
Question: How do I change the number of decimal places?
Answer: Touch 2nd FORMAT then touch the number of decimal places 0 - 8 and touch ENTER.
To display floating decimal format, touch 9 ENTER. Finally, touch 2nd QUIT.
Question: I'm getting the wrong results.
Answer: Make sure you have set the BEG/END mode correctly. Also make sure you have set
the payments per year P/Y appropriately for your problem. P/Y must be set to 1 if payments are
made annually, 12 if monthly, 4 if quarterly, etc. For most problems the C/Y should be set the
same as the P/Y value. Please refer to the "Sample Problems" chapter for more details.
Question: Where can I find a .pdf manual?
Answer:
You can download a printable PDF version of this manual from the Acorn Aircraft website
http://web.mac.com/acornaircraft/AcornAircraftSite/Downloads.html
Manuals for the TI BAIIPlus are available in a variety of languages at

Sample Problems
Setting up the calculator
The following steps should be used before working any problem.
1. Reset the calculator
Touch 2ND RESET ENTER to clear memory and the calculator to the factory default settings. If
you are unsure of the current state of your calculator or are getting unexpected results, use this
function to return to the baseline calculator setup.
2. Set the number of decimal places
Touch 2ND FORMAT, enter the number of decimal places and then touch ENTER. For most
situations, set this to 2 decimal places. When you are done setting the number of decimal
places touch 2ND QUIT
3. Set the number of payments per year (P/Y)
Touch 2ND P/Y enter the number of payments per year then touch ENTER. The new value is
displayed in green next to the P/Y label so you can easily see what the current setting is. When
you change the P/Y value, the compounding periods per year (C/Y) is automatically set to the
same value. When you are done setting P/Y touch 2ND QUIT
4. Set the annuity due (BGN) or ordinary annuity (END) mode
If the mode is currently set to BGN, a green dot appears just to the left of the BGN label on the
keyboard. To change the mode, touch 2ND BGN, then touch 2ND SET The value will alternate
between BGN and END each time you touch 2ND SET. When you are done setting the mode,
touch 2ND QUIT.
5. Clear the time value of money registers
Touch 2ND CLR TVM This function clears N, I/Y, PV, PMT and FV, but leaves P/Y and C/Y at
their current settings.
Time Value of Money (TVM) Computations
Lump Sums
Lump sum computations take into consideration the change in value over time of a single sum
invested at a given rate of return. These type of problems involve the 4 basic variables:
N#
I/Y#
PV#
FV#
the life of the investment
the interest rate
the present or starting value of the investment
the future or ending value of the investment
Enter any three of the variables and then solve for the 4th variable.
1. Future Value (FV)
BA Calc Pro User Manual

Acorn Aircraft
If you have $5,000 to invest at 6.5% per year, how much would your investment be worth at the
end of 6 years?
If the calculator screen is not already displayed, touch the Calculator icon in the tool bar at the
top of the screen. Then touch the following keys:
2ND RESET ENTER! clear the calculator to defaults

I/Y=6.50
5000+/- PV!PV=-5000.00
CPT FV!
!
FV=6,850.43
The result is 6,850.43
2. Present Value (PV)
Your daughter will be attending college in 12 years and you have determined that she will need
$125,000 to pay for tuition, room and board and books. If you can earn an average annual rate
of return of 6% per year, how much money would you need to invest today as a lump sum?
Touch the following keys:
2ND RESET ENTER! clear the calculator to defaults
12 N! !
N=12.00
6 I/Y!!
I/Y=6.00
125000 FV! FV=125,000.00
CPT PV!
!
PV= -62,121.17
The result is -62,121.17. Note that the result is negative. Cash flows that are paid out are
generally specified as a negative value and cash returned as a positive value. In this case, you
pay some amount of money into an investment (negative amount) and receive an amount some
time in the future (a positive amount).
3. Number of Periods (N)
If your daughter were to attend a private college the expenses would be greater than the above
example. You estimate that she would need $200,000. If you have $60,000 to invest at 8%,
how many years before she attends college would you have to begin her college savings plan?

3. Interest Rate (I/YR)
You have financial commitments that prevent you from investing in your daughter's college fund
until 12 years before she will attend college. At that time you will be able to invest $70,000.
What interest rate will be required for her fund to grow to $125,000 in time for her to attend
college?
Touch the following keys:
2ND RESET ENTER! clear the calculator to defaults

125000 FV! FV=125,000.00
CPT I/Y!
!
I/Y=4.95
You will need to find an investment that returns 4.95% to attain your goal.
Regular Annuities
A regular annuity is a series of equal cash flows occurring at equally spaced time intervals. In a
regular annuity, the first cash flow occurs at the END of the first period. An annuity due is similar
to a regular annuity, except that the first cash flow occurs immediately (BGN).
Similar to the lump sum computations, the annuity calculations involve the N, I/Y, PV and FV
variables. In addition, they include the PMT variable. To compute an annuity problem, you must
enter 4 of the following 5 variables before solving for the 5th:
N#
I/Y#
PV#
FV#
PMT#
the life of the investment
the interest rate
the present or starting value of the investment
the future or ending value of the investment
the regular payment
1. Future Value (FV)
If you are making a regular payment and want to compute the sum of the payments with interest
some time in the future you need to solve for Future Value.
You can set aside $5,000 per year towards your daughter's college fund. If you establish her
fund 10 years before she attends college and receive an average annual rate of return of 5.6%,
how much money will she have for paying her expenses?
Touch the following keys:

She will have $64,678.99. Note that the payment is specified as a negative amount because it is
a cash outflow from your pocket to the savings plan.
Suppose you establish the savings plan the same as above, but make monthly contributions of
$420. How much money will be accumulated at the end of 10 years?
Touch the following keys:
2ND RESET ENTER! clear the calculator to defaults

She will have $67,355.42.
Note: the 2ND ×P/Y (the shift function of the N key) multiplies the value in the display by the
current P/Y value. You could have computed the value in your head and entered 120 N instead.
2. Payment (PMT)
Solving for an annuity payment is the process used for computing a home or car loan payment
or for determining the the amount you need to save each year to reach a financial goal.
You are about to purchase a new home. The selling price is $375,000 and the bank is willing to
loan you the money at an annual interest rate of 7.2%. What will your monthly payments be on a
15 year loan?

The investment returns 6.76% annually.
5. Annuity Due
Annuities due differ from ordinary annuities because the first payment is made at the beginning
of the year instead of the end. To solve annuity due problems, you must change the end/begin
computation mode to begin. You do this by touching 2ND BGN and then touch 2ND SET until the
display shows BGN. Then touch 2ND QUIT. A green dot will be displayed next to the BGN label
on the keyboard when the mode is set to begin.

Format
The format worksheet allows you to set up the numeric display and calculation modes of the
calculator.
Variables
DEC
#
the DEC variable stores the number of decimal places to display. Enter a number from 0
to 8 to set the number of decimals places. Enter 9 to specify floating decimal display.
Angle Mode: DEG or RAD
#
DEG specifies that trigonometric functions work in degrees
#
RAD specifies that trigonometric functions work in radians
Date Display Mode: US or EUR
#
US dates display month followed by day and year MM.DDYY
#
EUR dates display day followed by month and year DD.MMYY
Note: Dates can be entered for the time period Jan. 1, 1950 through Dec. 31, 2049. If you enter
the YY portion of a date with the value 50 thru 99, the year is interpreted as 1950 thru 1999. If
you enter the YY portion of a date with a value 00 thru 49, the year is interpreted as 2000 thru
2049.
Number Display Mode: US or EUR
#
US number formatting inserts commas between every 3 digits and separates the integer
and fractional part of the number with a decimal point
#
EUR number formatting inserts a decimal point between every 3 digits and separates the
integer and fractional part of the number with a comma
Calculation Mode: Chn or AOS
#
Chn calculation mode solves problems in the order that you enter them.

IRR
Use the IRR worksheet to compute the internal rate of return from a cash flow series previously
entered using the CF worksheet.
Variable
IRR
#
The internal rate of return
example:
You purchase an apartment for 450,000. The first year after improvements, you net
5,000. Over the next couple years you decrease the vacancy rate and increase the
rents. Year 2 you net 6,000, and in year 3 you net 7,000. The following 8 years you net
10,000. In year 12 you sell the apartment for 500,000. What is the internal rate of return?
