Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

For some reason it is in a mode that changes a number like 1500 to 1.5. My math teacher said it is scientific abreviation. I don't understand it at all and my school math exam is coming up next Monday! What can I do to turn this off or reset it?

To find percentages on this calculator, or any calculator, you divide one number by the other, and multiply the result by 100.

For example, for 2 out of 5, we type in 2, hit the divide button, type in 5 and hit the equals sign and we will get 0.4. To make this into percentage, we then multiply the answer by 100 to get 40%.

Good luck,

Paul

On the Staples Scientific Calculator BD-107i, I can't find the fraction function. I don't think there is one.

Your calculator is giving you the correct answer, telling you that 0.77 to the 22nd is about 3.1827 times ten to the minus 3, or 0.0031827 . By default, the calculator will switch to scientific notation if the magnitude of the number is less than 10 to the minus 2, or 0.01. You can put the switch at 10 to the minus 9 by repeatedly pressing the MODE key until you reach the screen showing "Fix Sci Norm" on the top line. Press 3 to select Norm, then press 2 to select Norm2.

The calculator can only show ten digits. The only way it can show a number with ten or more leading zeroes is to switch to scientific notation.

I am not sure what you want because the mathIO mode IS THE ONE THAT DISPLAYS results as fractions.

You have two display modes: MthIO (with fractions, radicals) and LineIO (with decimals). Which one do you want?

To set MthIO press [Shift][MODE][1:MthIO]

To set LineIO, press [SHIFT][MODE][2:LineIO]

Concerning the scientific display mode.

Decimal numbers can be displayed in various formats, Fixed,Scientific, and Normal. If you do not want scientific display of results, just set the mode to Fix(ed) and specify the number of decimal digits. However if a number to be displayed (a result) is too small or too large IT WILL BE DISPLAYED in scientific format regardless of the mode you selected.

Press SHIFT MATH 2 to switch to the LineIO mode. You won't see fractions then. However, if magnitude of the number is too large or too small, the calculator will switch to scientific notation in order to fit into the display.

Hello,

Press [SHIFT][MODE][6:Fix] and press a numbetr between (0--9). The number you select will be the number of decimal places your results have.

However if a result is smaller than 0.001 it will be in scientific notation.

Hope it helps.
