When I times 500 by 5 for example I get the answer of 2.5k which is equivalent to 2500, how do I display the answer as 2500 instead of 2.5k?

SOURCE: when doing division only displays answer in fraction

- Press [S<=>D] key to toggle between fractions/radicals and decimal numbers.
- Alternatively, press [SHIFT][=] instead of [=] to force display to be in decimal format.
- More permanently, press [SHIFT] [MODE] to access (SETUP) screen, then select [ 2:LineIO]

If you mean it is not showing everything after the decimal point, you can change that by pressing the [f] key followed by the number of decimal places to display. For example, to restrict it to 2 places, press [f][2]. If you want to see 4 places, press [f][4].

To show all possible decimal places, use the sequence [f][9].

From the manual (http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00363319.pdf):

"To display a different number of decimal places, press f followed by a digit key (0 through 9) specifying the number of decimal places. In the following examples, notice how the displayed form of the number inside the calculator - 14.87456320 - is rounded to the specified number of digits."

"Although nine decimal places were

specified after f, only eight are

displayed since the display can

show a total of only 10 digits. "

The standard display format, plus the specified number of decimal places, remain in effect until you change them; they are not reset each time the calculator is turned on. However, if Continuous Memory is reset, when the calculator is next turned on numbers will be displayed in the standard display format with two decimal places

shown.

If a calculated answer is either too small or too large to be displayed in the standard display format, the display format automatically switches to scientific notation. The display returns to the standard display format for all numbers that can be displayed in that format.

If you wan to solve an equation using the SOLVE feature you enter it as follows (your example)

You should rewrite it as 5/4*X-18+3 (= 0). Implicitly, the calculator assumes that the right side is ZERO and you do not enter any right side nor an equal sign.

Type in

5/4 [*] [X,T,theta, n] -18 +3 [ALPHA] [ENTER] (SOLVE)

You should get an answer -780/47 or the decimal equivalent (depending on display mode.)

Let us first set the record straight: Your calculation is a division not an addition. Be it as it may, the result you obtain is correct the fraction is equivalent to the one you entered, the difference lie in the fact that the calculator reduces the (entered) fraction to its simplest form.

Both the numerator and the denomonator have been divided by 15.

If the result is already calculated and displayed, press the [S<=>D] key It will convert a fraction or radical to decimal. This is always possible. If the result is decimal it may be converted to a fraction or a radical (Not always possible).

If the expression to be evaluated is still in the command line and you have not pressed the [=] key, you can force the result to be displayed in decimal format by pressing [SHIFT][=] instead of just [=].

More permanently. If you do n o care for fractions and radicals, set the Input/Outpout mode to LineIO. To do do press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) screen and select [2:LineIO]

Hello,

You have several number display formats : Normal1, Normal2, Sci, ENG

If a number is too small or too large and the calculator cannot display it with the necessary number of digits (to satisfy your of decimal digits) the calculator uses Scientific notation

7.4E-14 =7.4x10^(-14)

If you were to use the norma1 or normal2 format you will have

.0000000000000074 but your calculator displays only the first 10 places

You should learn to use and interpret results in scientific format.

Hope it helps

Formatting such a large hard disk will take a long time, especially if you do a full format (not a quick format).

Just let the computer do its thing, don't turn it off.
