You may find this way simpler:
b = beginning (65000)
e = ending (71000)
g = % growth (?)

g = e/b - 1 = 71000/65000 - 1 = 1.0923 - 1 = .0923 or 9.23%

Both the "12/12" and the "6/12" above cancel so have no effect.

Cleary 21000- 24000 is negative 3000. Divided by 25000, -3000/65000 is -12%, not 16%. Since that is for half a year, the "annualized" loss is -24%, 2 times -12%.

To combine the two, "weight" each by the time interval. The first was for one year, the second for 1/2 year. ((9.23)(1)+ (-24)(1/2))/(3/2)= (9.23- 12)/(3/2)= (-2.77)(2/3)= -5.54/3= -1.85... This is a 1.85% loss.
