Your calculator is set to display no digits after the decimal point. To change this, you have two options: press 2nd [SCI/ENG] then select "FLO" for floating decimal or press 2nd [FIX] then select the desired number of digits after the decimal point (or F for floating).

The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:

f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard

4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)

3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)

2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)

0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)

add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)

Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

Tap the TRIG tab at the bottom of soft keyboard. The trigonometric functions will become available to you.

To make sure you are using the correct angle units look at the bottom of screen where it says Alg Standard Real Rad. If you use degrees instead of Rad it should display Deg.

To set the correct angle unit, press the Setting icon at the lowest left of screen and choose radian or degree and select decimal calculation if you need evaluated decimal results. Tap the set button to validate your choices.

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 pres 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.
