Question about Sharp EL-2196BL Calculator

You need to put your tab where it says K*A and set that to A (it is the 3rd set of buttons) and then you need to go to the 5th set of buttons that show F 6 3 2 1 0 and set this to 2. Hope that works :o)

Got to program mode press keys, [1], [2], [R/A]. This sets the decimal point for 2-decimal places.

None of these solutions answer his question. When converting a fraction or any number with decimal places to Binary, the TI-89 gives "Error: Domain error." For example, entering .6875 [2ND][MATH][BASE][BIN] does not work. I haven't found a way to do it with built in functions. In order to do these types of conversions, I use the following method.

Convert: 0.6875 to Binary

- left of decimal is a 0, so write down a 0, then a decimal point: (0.)

- multiply .6875 x 2 = 1.375 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1)

- drop the 1 and multiply .375 x 2 = .75 left of decimal is 0. write a 0: (0.10)

- multiply .75 x 2 = 1.5 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.101)

- drop the 1, multiple .5 x 2 = 1. left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1011).

- since there is no more fraction, the final answer is (0.1011). Hope this helps.

Hello,

To make sure that results are always in decimal format, put a decimal mark (point) at the end of one integer.

ex:**1./2 or 1/2. **or** 1./2.** display as 0.5, so does **1. + 1/2**

To convert from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal press**a b/c**

To convert from proper to improper fractions use**[SHIFT][d/c] **

Hope it helps.

try this, press shift mode, then line 10. It will make it permanent. the answer will always be in decimals. if you are using a casio with ES models.

Set the +43210F switch to + (or 2).

On some models it is A43210F, then use A (or 2).

+ mode will let you enter numbers (monetary) without the decimal point and assumes cents; 2 mode will just round to 2 decimals, but you must enter the decimal.

You have to set how the calculator handles numbers. To do this follow these steps:
1. Press the 'MODE' button. This brings up the calculator's main settings page.
2. Scroll down until you reach a field titled 'Exact/Approx...'. This is the setting for how the calculator handles numbers, whether it will show the exact answer (which is usually in fraction format) or whether it will show an approximate number (which will be in decimal format).
3. Press the right arrow which will bring up the options for that setting. You must now choose between three ways of handling numbers:
-'1:AUTO' will determine which type of answer the calculator will give based on what numbers you want it to calculate (e.g. if you want an answer in decimal format just add a decimal somewhere in your problem).
-'2:EXACT' will automatically display all answers in either whole number format or in fraction format.
-'3:APPROXIMATE' will automatically display all answers in decimal format.
4. After you have selected one of those options press enter one more time to get out of the 'MODE' dialogue and return to the 'HOME' screen. Now try a problem and see what happens.
Personally I like using 'AUTO' because then I don't have to keep returning to 'MODE' when I want either or.
Hope this helped, I had the same problem when I first started using the TI-89.
