At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers.

If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to

Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.

There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE

Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.

To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.

<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page.

Upgrade the OS of the calculator to the 2.53 MP (Math Print) version. As you can see on the following screen capture of the MODE setting, you can choose to use the CLASSIC option (the old way) or the MathPrint version.

You should notice that the Answers AUTO DEC or FRAC options allow you to configure the calculator to work in DECimal, FRACtions or AUTO (the calculator chooses whats is appropriate).

The n/d is for improper fractions and Un/d for mixed fractions.

Enjoy your new found freedom.

Here is the link to the new OS 2.53MP

The calculator has two Input/Output modes, MthIO and LineIO. In MthIO the results are displayed as fractions or as radicals or a mixture of fractions and radicals. What it means, is that in MthIO the calculator does exact calculations. Radicals in denominators are gotten rid of by rationalization, fractions are reduced to the same denominators before addition or subtraction. Fractions are reduced to simplest form.

In LineIO all results are displayed as decimal numbers.

If a result is exact (fractions and radicals) it can be changed to decimal form by pressing the S To D key, the one above the DEL key.

MthIO is the default IO mode. To set it, press SHIFT MODE and select 1:MthIO. To set LineIO as the IO mode, press SHIFT MODE and select 2:LineIO

In LineIO all results are displayed as decimal numbers.

If a result is exact (fractions and radicals) it can be changed to decimal form by pressing the S To D key, the one above the DEL key.

MthIO is the default IO mode. To set it, press SHIFT MODE and select 1:MthIO. To set LineIO as the IO mode, press SHIFT MODE and select 2:LineIO

there is a A b/c button. This is the button use to enter fractions. so 4/3 would be entered as 4 |A b/c| 3

If you want to have the answers in fractions as well, then I believe you hit more a few times. And then there should be a display option, in the display option, there should be a b/c. This will show your answers in fractions. Hope it helps

1) Press the "SHIFT" button

2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button

3) Press the "2" button

This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)

Doing all of the above but pressing the "1" button instead of the "2" puts it back into MATHIO mode (Fraction)

Hope this Helps

(SHIFT)(MODE/SETUP)(2) to change to decimal

Struggled with this and found answer on about

just under "Note"
Trick is you must have calculator in "LineIO" mode
For setting MODE see "Calculation Modes & cal. Setup in paper instructions.
