# Decimal Problem I have a Sharp EL-1801P III. I want to make it so that it automatically puts the decimal in for me when I hit the add button. For example if I typed in 3569 it would make it 35.69. Is this possible??

On the front panel is a section that reads F63210A. Place the selector to 2 and you will get your deminal point

### How do I set the decimal to automatically enter for dollars and cents on my Sharp EL-1197PIII?

Set the Mode selector to "A"
Set the Decimal selector to "2"

In addition & subtraction you will automatically get 2 decimal places without entering the "." just enter 1250 and it will print 12.50

In multiplication/division, you must enter the "." (decimal point).
ie: 12.50 x 2 = 25.00

### How to change decimal point

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.

### SETTINGS

Check the Decimal / Add Selector. It shoul be set to "A" (Add mode), to permit addition and subtraction of numbers without entry of the decimal point.

Your calculator has a decimal counter (top center of calculator starting with the letter F654321A) for lack of a better name for it. Anyway mine is set at A. It puts the decimal in for me. I hope this helps you. if you haven't figured it out by now.

### I lost my decimal point

You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.
To change to add mode, make sure the 'K . A' switch is in the 'A' position. To get 2 decimal places in the answer, move the selector in the 'F 6 3 2 1 0' switch to the '2' position.

You can see the above described at

this Sharp.com page which shows the users manual. The manual shows examples.
