It just started it

You round a number with several decimal places to a number with fewer decimal places.

1.14 rounded to 1 decimal place 1.1

What you are asking for can be done by putting a zero after 4 and write 1.140, BUT that is not rounding. In fact you can put as many zeros after 4 as you want.

Initial Setup

One adjustment is important before we get started. By default the 12C 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 **"F"** and then the number of decimal places you wish to display. I would press **"F 5 "** to display 5 decimal places. That's it, the calculator is ready to go.

You need to hold the "F" key.---------

Decimal is the base-10 notational system for representing real numbers. The expression of a number using the decimal
system is called its decimal expansion,
examples of which include 1, 13, 2028, 12.1, and 3.14159.

Each of the arabic numerals 0 to 9 is called a decimal digit, and the period placed to the right of the units place in a decimal number is called
the decimal point (or, in the
case that a comma is instead used for this purpose, the decimal comma).

The **decimal** is a way of managing numbers that has ten as a starting point, or base. It is sometimes called the **base ten** or **denary**
numeral system. The word "decimal" is also used instead of the word
"period" to point out the dot that is sometimes used separates the
positions of the numbers in this system. Almost everyone uses this nowadays and prefers the convenience of it probably because it shows up most often in calculations in nature and has "one" as another starting point for the system. The number one is usually the easiest to work with in calculations.

Say you have a repeating decimal number 0.714285 714285 714285 etc. You identify the period (the repeating part) and in this case it is 714285.

You count the number of decimal places in the period: here it is 6. Your equivalent fraction is

Fraction= period/(99...9) where the number of 9's in the denominator is equal to the number of decimal places in the period. For this case, that is 6.

Thus

0.714285 714285 714285 etc.= 714285 / 999999

Reduce the fraction and you will find 5/7

This technique works for a repeating decimal number where the period starts just after the decimal mark.

If the periodic part does not start right after the decimal mark there are modifications to be made.

You need to update this calculator. You can do that by clicking here! The previous model Sharp used a 10 digit accuracy and, 2 digit limit for exponents. Us young guys would watch the instructor crunch his math with out putting the zeros in. And then when he gave the answer he would just simply add the zeros back in. If you don't see any improvement after you update, I just may recommend you to do the same. You do know the 5 decimal places isn't your only problem, Right! You have a correct answer problem too. Unless it is a typo.

Step 1: Find a number you can multiply by **the bottom of the fraction** to make it 10, or 100, or 1000, or any 1 followed by 0s.
Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by that number.
Step 3. Then write down just the top number, putting the decimal place in the correct spot (one space
from the right for every zero in the bottom number)
Example 1: Express 3/4 as a Decimal
Step 1: We can mulitply 4 by 25 to become 100

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25:

**×25**
**3**
** = **
**75**

**4**
**100**
**×25**
Step 3: Write down 75 with the decimal place 2 spaces from the right (because 100 has 2 zeros);

Answer = 0.75

Example 2: Express 3/16 as a Decimal Step 1: We have to mulitply 16 by**625** to become 10,000

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 625:

**×625**
**3**
** = **
**1,875**

**16**
**10,000**
**×625**
Step 3: Write down 1875 with the decimal place 4 spaces from the right (because 10,000 has 4 zeros);

Answer = 0.1875

Example 2: Express 1/3 as a Decimal Step 1: There is no way to multiply 3 to become 10 or 100 or any power of 10, but we can calculate an**approximate** decimal by choosing
to multiply by, say, 333

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 333:

**×333**
**1**
** = **
**333**

**3**
**999**
**×333**
Step 3: Now, 999 is *nearly* 1,000, so let us write down 333 with the decimal place 3 spaces from the right (because 1,000 has 3 zeros):

Answer = 0.333 (accurate to only 3 decimal places !

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25:

Answer = 0.75

Example 2: Express 3/16 as a Decimal Step 1: We have to mulitply 16 by

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 625:

Answer = 0.1875

Example 2: Express 1/3 as a Decimal Step 1: There is no way to multiply 3 to become 10 or 100 or any power of 10, but we can calculate an

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 333:

Answer = 0.333 (accurate to only 3 decimal places !

I found this solution on the HP website. Turn it on, and do what it says. Then turn it off and back on again, and the extra decimal places should show.

- Press and release the gold PREFIX key (f).
- Press the number key for the desired number of decimal places (0 through 9).

Try pushing and releasing [f], then [4]. This will give you 4 decimal places. (It follows that if you want 5 decimal places, push 5 instead of 4, etc). If that doesn't work, you can try taking the batteries out and putting them back in which should reset it to 2 decimal places, then set it where you want it following the above.

If it continues to malfunction I suggest taking the batteries out for 24 hours to allow a static discharge. This will lose anything you stored in the calculator, setting it back to how it came from the factory.
