Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

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.

When i type 1-.9909 it will give me scientific notation. then i tried changing the fix mode when it says 0~9 i changed it to 0 but that isnt giving me the correct answer. how do i fix this


"FIX" mode is the number of decimal places, When you say Fix-0 it will truncate the decimals.
Either set model FIX-4 or FIX-5 or better still, just regular COMP mode.
Shift-clr-2 (mode) should set it back to defaults.

How to you chage from 2 decimals to 4 on the ba ii plus


By default the BAII Plus displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press the 2nd key, then the decimal point key, and, when prompted, enter the number of digits you would like to see displayed. You must then press the Enter key to lock in your choice. I would press 2nd, ., 5, Enter to display 5 decimal places. Now press 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

One other adjustment is important. The BAII Plus comes from the factory set to assume monthly compounding. That's fine, I suppose, but its better to set it to assume annual compounding and then make manual adjustments when you enter numbers. Why? Well, the compounding assumption is hidden from view and in my experience people tend to forget to set it to the correct assumption. Of course, most people don't recognize a wrong answer when they get one, so they blithely forge ahead. To fix this problem press 2nd then I/Y and enter 1 when prompted. Now press Enter and then 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

Hi,
You need to change the display format.
Press the [MODE] key a certain number of times until the screen displays Fix, Sci, Norm on one line, and 1 2 3 on the next line, with 1 under Fix, 2 under Sci and 3 under Norm.

Press 1 (Fix) followed by a number (1,2,3, etc.) This second number will set the number of decimal digits. In other words, if you press 1 (Fix) 3 all your results will have 3 decimal digits. If you choose 0, your results will not show decimals.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for rating the solution.

From the manual:

SETTING THE NUMBER OF DECIMAL DIGITS
Numbers of decimal digits of calculation results can be specified by pressing [C-CE] twice, then press [C-CE]and [M+] simultaneously.
The decimal digit assignment will appear as “F” (for “floating point”), “2” or “0” on the LCD. (The default is “F”.)
Press and hold [C-CE] and [M+] until the symbol changes.

SETTING UP THE DECIMAL ON NEW 210 TM


Set the +43210F switch to + (or 2).
On some models it is A43210F, then use A (or 2).
+ mode will let you enter numbers (monetary) without the decimal point and assumes cents; 2 mode will just round to 2 decimals, but you must enter the decimal.

I lost my decimal point


You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.
To change to add mode, make sure the 'K . A' switch is in the 'A' position. To get 2 decimal places in the answer, move the selector in the 'F 6 3 2 1 0' switch to the '2' position.

You can see the above described at

this Sharp.com page which shows the users manual. The manual shows examples.
