How to reduce the decimal places on my calculator, It currently shows 6 decimal places i dont need them to be six

Press the MODE key a certain number of times until you get FIX. Select it. You will be asked to specify the number of decimal places (enter a number between 0 and 9). You can also choose the normal mode. However, if the result is too small or too large, it will be displayed in scientific notation.

SOURCE: calculator won't show decimal places

Haven't heard of it giving nearest whole numbers before. But have you tried pressing SHIFT and then SETUP (upper right hand corner next to ON button) and then pressing 2 (LineIO)? Or perhaps you're in different MODE?

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.

You can select the A (K . A) and then the # of decimal places (F 6 3 2 1 0) you want. So if you want to enter 1234 & it calculates 12.34, this will work.

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 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.
