Hello,

I do not see why it should not work, but you can try TAB 3. You will have 3 decimal digits. Ignore the extra digit if it is less than 5 round it up if equal to or greater greater than.

Hope it helps.

Hi there,

To change the FSE code on your SHARP calculator press SETUP and choose 0. FIX means that it shows you all the decimal places. SCI is scientific notation, ENG changes the scientific notation in groups of 3's. NORM1 and NORM2 are your normal number ranges, however norm2 starts from zero and anything negative will be written in scientific notation.

This is because you have told the calculator to keep that many decimals on the screen. To change it back press SET UP choose 0 for FSE press the down arrow key and press 3 for NORM1. This will take you back to normal settings.

3: NORM1 and 4: NORM2 are the usual or normal settings on the calculator. Most school calculations will use NORM1 mode.
