Question about Casio MS-80TV Scientific Calculator

3 Answers

Percentage button!! The percentage button on this calculator is automatically giving a 25% increase to whatever number I input. For example the following entry "12000 + 20%" should yield 14,440 but on this calculator the same entry yields 15,000. The only way I can get the correct number is to enter "12000 x (not +) 120%". I've never used any other calculator that gave this weird output. Thoughts?? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The Casio MS-80TV requires you to input percentage calculations differently than other calculators. To calculate percentage change addition for this example, you must input "12000X20%+", for subtraction, you must input "12000x20%-".

They call it hardware malfunction. try removing all batteries in it and wait for 30 seconds before reinserting the batteries. If the same problem still exist, the unit is permanently damaged.

What is formula to find percentage of females in my workplace?


      To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

3.In percentage terms, what is the approximate increase in participation from 2005 to 2008?


That depends on the number of participants in 2005.
If you don't give the full problem then we can't give you an answer. If, for example, 13,000 people commenced in 2005 then the percentage increase is 100%. If 130,000 people commenced in 2005 then the percentage increase is 10%.

How to convert percent to fraction

  1. Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
  2. Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
  3. Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer: f = 10 to power d
    Example:
    f = 10 power 2 = 100
  4. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f: x * f / f = y / f
    Example:
    2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100
  5. Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction. Example:
    gcd(256,100) = 4
  6. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value: Example:
    256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25
Example One percent is equal to one hundredth:
1% = 1/100
So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.
For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:
56% = 56/100 = 14/25

How do i use the percentage function?


If you want to find 25% of 500
ENTER....
500 X 25 [2ndF] % will display 125.

If you want to know what % a number is of another number like for instance...
What percentage is 120 of 400?
ENTER...
120 [DIV] 400 [2ndF] % will display 30.


If you want to increase a number by some percentage like
Increase 500 by 25%
ENTER...
500 + 25 [2ndF] % will display 625.

If you want to decrease a number by a percentage like
Decrease 400 by 30%
ENTER...
400 - 30 [2ndF] % will Display 280.

NOTE [2ndF] is the 2ndF button. Do not enter the brackets [ and ].
NOTE [DIV] is the divide button. The text editor would not let me enter the divide symbol

Wha is a percentage number of another of another


Hmmm. Could you give more details? Are you wanting to find a percentage? If so, here's an example - 10% of 100 is 10.
Multiply 100 by .10 = 10.

So to find the percentage of a number, multiply the number in question by the decimal version of the percentage. 8% is .08, 15% is .15, etc.

I hope that helps!

Casio fx-82ms calculator does not give me an answer when i use the percentage button . example if i type 0.25/ 100% i get 0.25 instead of the right answer 25


Here is a sample of the percentage calculations that the calculator can perform. You will not see among them the conversion from decimals to percentages.
To convert from decimals to percents move the decimal mark 2 places to the right and append the % sign.
To convert from percents to decimals, move the decimal mark 2 places to the left.

How to calculate the percentage using the excel



Hide All
Percentages are calculated by using the following equation:
amount/total = percentage
Where percentage is in decimal format.
What do you want to do?


Calculate the amount if you know the total and percentage For example, if you purchase a computer for $800 and there is an 8.9% sales tax, how much do you have to pay for the sales tax? In this example, you want to find 8.9% of 800.
Example The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

  1. Create a blank workbook or worksheet.
  2. Select the example in the Help topic. Note Do not select the row or column headers.
    Selecting an example from Help
  3. Press CTRL+C.
  4. In the worksheet, select cell A1, and press CTRL+V.
  5. To switch between viewing the results and viewing the formulas that return the results, press CTRL+` (grave accent), or on the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the Show Formulas button.

For example, the sales tax in this example (8.9) divided by 100 is .089.
Calculate the percentage if you know the total and amount For example, if you score 42 points correctly out of 50, what is the percentage of correct answers?

How to calcolate %


Inputting a value and pressing SHIFT [%] converts the input value to a percent. For example:
2 SHIFT [%] = produces .02

To determine 20% of 150:
150 * 20 SHIFT [%] = produces 30

To calculate what percentage of 880 is 660:
660 / 880 SHIFT [%] = produces 75

To increase 2500 by 15%:
2500 + 2500*15 SHIFT [%] = or
2500 * (1+15 SHIFT [%] ) = produces 2875

To discount 3500 by 25%:
3500 - 3500 * SHIFT [%] = or
3500 * (1-15 SHIFT [%]) = produces 2625

To calculate the percentage change from 40 to 46:
(46 - 40) / 40 SHIFT [%] produces 15
