How can I round 0.4678476 to the nearest dollar?

When rounding, we always look at the number in the position directly to the right of the position we are interested in. In this case, the whole dollar is the number immediately to the left of the decimal, so we look at the number immediately to the right of the decimal. If this number is 5 or more, we add 1 to the number to the left of the decimal. If the number to the right of the decimal is 4 or less, we do not add 1 to the number to the left of the decimal.

In this case, the number is 4, so it rounds down to 0.

Good luck,

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.

What is the default setting for the f cut 5/4 and the 4320 add 2 I don't know what to have these options set at thanks EW Seattle

The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:
f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard
4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)
3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)
2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)
0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)
add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)
Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

I lost my decimal point

You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.
