Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

After working with calculator set at floating decimal, then moving it to 2 (or any other fixed decimal place) won't reset - it sticks on floating and forces me to enter the decimal.

If you want your calculator to display the results with 5 decimal digits:

- Open the [MODE] configuration screen.
- On first line highlight [NORMAL], if it is not already highlighted and press [ENTER] to validate.
- Use Down arrow key once to reach the line Float 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

- Press ENTER to validate your choice

If you want all entries and answers to have two numbers after the decimal, you should have a lever or slide that shows F,6,3,2,1,0. Some also show Add. Set the lever on the 2 or add. F means floating decimal. the others indicate how many numbers after the decimal.

You have set your calculator to work in Base-5 numeration (pental). You should change numeration to decimal . On most Sharps you press 2nd F and +. to switch to decimal.

You can select the A (K . A) and then the # of decimal places (F 6 3 2 1 0) you want. So if you want to enter 1234 & it calculates 12.34, this will work.

Hold (C.CE) then whilst holding it press (M+) for approximately a second and it will move one place along in the three settings (F, 2 and 0) F shows full decimals, 2 shows 2 decimal places and 0 as yours is set to now round to the nearest whole number. I have just been sat at my desk trying to work this out as my calculator was too set to '0'. Took me reading the 'DEC DET' text with lines pointing at 'M+' and 'C.CE' to finally crack it!

Hope this helps.

Hello

The floating point number display (FIX) is set to zero decimal digits. All your. numbers with decimal parts are rounded.

Look for a key that says [FIX]. Press it and enter a number say3 If I guessed right (Sharp makes numerous calculators) your numbers will show 3 decimal digits.

If there is no such key look for a [MODE] Button. Press the button. If you have a new screen with differents choices look for Format, Float,

On some older calculators there is a table below the display. At the left of the table one finds MODE--> or -->MODE

If it says there Mode DEG:4 that means to have angles in degrees you enter [MODE][4].

I think I exhausted all possibilities. Without you model number, I cannot do more.

Hope it helps.

From the manual:

Numbers of decimal digits of calculation results can be specified by pressing [C-CE] twice, then press [C-CE]and [M+] simultaneously.

The decimal digit assignment will appear as “F” (for “floating point”), “2” or “0” on the LCD. (The default is “F”.)
