The [MODE] key can be used to select the modes described below.
Important! The following is a general explanation of Scientific Calculator modes. Note that your calculator may not include all of the modes described here.
1) Calculation Modes
Before performing a calculation, you first need to select the appropriate calculation mode.
COMP: Basic arithmetric calculations
(arithmetic operations, trigonometric functions, etc.)
COMPLEX: Complex number calculations
SD: Single-variable statistical calculations
(sample standard deviation, etc.)
LR or REG: Paired-variable statistical calculations
(linear regression statistical calculations, etc.)
BASE or BASE-n: Binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal number system calculations
MAT: Matrix calculations (determinants, etc.)
VCT: Vector calculations
EQU: nth degree equations, simultaneous equations
2) Display Settings
Use these settings to control how calculation results are displayed.
Note that changing the Fix and Sci settings does not affect internal calculation results.
Norm: Exponential display format and cancels the currently configured Fix and Sci settings.
Fix: Specifies a fixed number of digits to the right of the decimal place.
Sci: Specifies a fixed number of significant digits.
3) Angle Unit Setting
Deg: Degrees
4) Engineering Mode
Use this mode when you want to input and perform calculations using engineering symbols.

Increase the number of decimal digits in display.

1. Press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the {SETUP)
2. Enter the number (6) corresponding to option [6:FIX]
3. In screen that is displyaed, enter the number of decimal digits you want (2, 3, or 4). If you enter 0, all decimal numbers will be displayed as integers (rounded). If you enter 9, you will have long numbers but that is hardly ever necessary.

You can configure it as you wish. Press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) configuration screen, then select [8:Norm].

You will be prompted to choose Norm1 or Norm2. To help you find out which is more appropriate to meet your concerns, I am inserting a screen capture from the manual.

Press the [SET UP] key, followed by the 0 key to bring up the display menu. You can select "FIX" followed by the number of digits to the right of the decimal point, or press cursor-down and select one of the NORM modes. Press [ON/C] to exit the menu.

Be aware that some numbers cannot be displayed exactly. For example, 1/3 is a 0.3 followed by an infinite number of 3s.

### How i fad the one decimal place the answer of this question 0.7844 correct to 1 decimal place

You haven't made the purpose of the question very clear Miriam so I am only guessing that it is an exercise in rounding or shortening decimal fractions to make them easier to work with which is often convenient when approximations do not matter.

The general rule of rounding is to take the last figure and if it is less than 5 it is erased and if it is 5 or more it is erased but 1 is added to the next or the new last figure and the process is repeated until the fraction is shortened to the required length.

If you take the decimal fraction 0.8745, after the first stage of rounding it would become 0.875 and then after the second stage of rounding it would become 0.88 and then finally rounding to one decimal place the result would be 0.9.

I hope this helps you deal with your fraction. I apologise in advance if I have misunderstood the question.

### How do I round a decimal when you have a lot of numbers after the decimal point?

You first have to decide what accuracy, that is how many decimals, are needed in the answer. There is a rule of thumb which says you should not quote more decimals than the accuracy of the data used in the calculation. Money calcs of course would usually use just 2 decimals.

So when dropping decimals round up the last remaining of the dropped decimal is 5 or over, otherwise it is unaltered. So 2.2361 rounded off to 3 dec is 2.236, and rounded to 2 dec it is 2.24.

There are no decimal digits in this number. You can put a decimal mark in 8 537 000. and append two zeros, or more. But I would not call that rounding 8 537 000.00

### I don't know if maybe my calculator has a function turned on that rounds the answer to a whole number? But here is an example: 106 x 6.32 = 670 according to my calculator, which is wrong. The real answer...

Your calculator is set to display no digits after the decimal point. To change this, you have two options: press 2nd [SCI/ENG] then select "FLO" for floating decimal or press 2nd [FIX] then select the desired number of digits after the decimal point (or F for floating).
