I figured it out, the amount in the deal is what you invested minus the down pmt from the seller. and the 13.3 is the interest. Thanks for all your help.

Depends on which kind of calculator you have, but here goes for mine, which is a BA 35, cheapy(20 buck special at Wally World).

Here we’ll take a Mobile deal as an example.

Bought for 6k, sold for 21k, with 1k down. That leaves
5k in the deal.

The numbers

enter 20,000 PV (present Value)
enter 13.3 2nd (yellow button, divides by 12)
enter %i (will get 1.1083 in display)
enter %i (push again to enter the number)
enter 144 N (number of months, note will run)
enter CPT (stands for compute)
enter PMT (to figure payment)

payment is 278.65

enter 5k PV (how much money left in the deal)
enter cpt (compute key again)
enter %i (interest rate)

this case you get 5.57 and some change, multiply by 12,
and you get 66.85%, a good yield, but not a typical Lonnie deal.

Good Luck
