<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors. <br /><br />At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers. <br />If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to <b>disable</b> <b>the WriteView display mode</b>. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.<br /><b>Disabling WriteView<br /></b><br />Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.<br /><br />There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE<br /><br />Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.<br /><br />To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.<br /><br /><b>NOTE</b>: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode. <br /></span>
