Is it subtracting, multiplying, dividing? Check the way you are entering your numbers.

Why doesn't the equal button work when I do additions and subtractions?

Your calculator is fine. It is an adding machine first, so it uses adding machine logic and you hit the star button to print the total on the tape. The equals sign is only used when multiplying and dividing.

Adding machine logic is as follows:

5+ total 5
3- total 2
7+ total 9
* print out total

Good luck,

Paul

How can I get my sharp calculator to add and subtract correctly?

Could it be that it has adding machine logic and not calculator logic?

Let's do an experiment. 3+ 3+ 5-. Is the answer 1?

If so, it is working like an adding machine. Every number you enter is considered positive or negative and it keeps a running total.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck.

What does that mean adding? Displaying extra zeros? If that is the case Press [2nd][.] and limit the number of decimal you want.
You can put the calculator in FLOating mode: Press 2nd DRG and choose FLO.

PH

That would depend on how much water you're adding to. Adding 10ml of HCl to a thimble of water is not the same thing as adding 10ml of HCl to a swimming pool.

How do subtract on this calculator

To calculate 7-2=5 (for example) on a business calculator:
7 + (all positive entries are followed by the + key)
2 - (all negative entries are followed by the - key)
* (The Total key, marked with a star or a T finishes the calculation.)

It seems strange to people who use handheld calculators, but this is how adding machines have worked since the days of hand-cranked adding machines. The subtotal key (marked with S or a diamond) prints the running total without clearing it back to zero.

My calculator will add, but after my total and then I want to subtract, it subtracts by the number I added.

If your calculator is more of an adding machine it works a little bit differently than a calculator. For an example: 10 + 5 - 2 on your machine do the addition of 10 + 5, then to subtract the 2 press 2 then the minus sign to get the total of 13. I hope this is helpful.

When adding on My Sharp EL-1701C calculator it will stop adding and show a P. E

The P stands for power & usually means you need to change your battery

Problems with my calculator sharp el-1197p

If the top button, third from the left is set to K it acts like a calculator. If you push it over to A it acts like an adding machine.

For an adding machine: type the number first then hit the function (i.e. +, -, x,...)
