The number of decimal digits in your display is fixed to 0, so that all decimals are wiped out.

### How to find remainder as a solution in CASIO fx991ES

Finding the remainder from a division calculation is often referred to as using the MOD function, though this isn't available directly on the fx-991ES.
To obtain the remainder, for example when dividing 10 by 7, you can only divide 7 into 10 once, leaving a remainder of 3.
For larger numbers, eg when dividing 389487 by 31 (equivalent to 389487MOD31) the division gives an answer of 12564.09677 (on the display), however you only want the fractional part so subtract 12564 to give 0.0967741935 . This includes the lower value digits that were previously hidden. Then multiply this result by 31 which gives 2.999999999 on the display. Since the result of a MOD or remainder calculation involving integers has to be a whole number, the answer needs to be rounded to 3. If the answer doesn't easily round to a whole number, it is likely that you have gone beyond the calculator's working capacity.
An alternative method which avoids the rounding of the fractional part is to take the integer part of the first result (12564) and multiply it by 31 to get 389484, then subtract this from 389487, giving the answer of 3.

### VB 6.0 ROUNDING A NUMBER

Use the Math.Round() function. It takes two arguments, the first is your number or a variable holding your number and the second is the number of decimal places. This will only round to fractions of a whole number though and you need to round to the nearest 10. So divide your number by 10 before you round to shift the decimal place once to the left and multiply by 10 again afterwards to shift it back again.

answer = Math.Round(32.1 / 10, 0) * 10
