Why? If number is decimal the dot is needed. If the result is an integer, just ignore the dot.

I don't think you can change the display. I looked in the manual. Hopefully, some day, this will be available.

I am afraid there is a misunderstanding. The sequence you describe changes the decimal marker from a dot to a comma. It does not insert a thousands separator.

I don't know which particular calculator model you have, but for an HP-12C, the manual says the following:

**Digit Separators **

As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display. When the calculator is first turned on after coming from the factory - or after Continuous Memory is reset - the decimal point in displayed numbers is a dot, and the separator between each group of three digits is a comma. If you wish, you can set the calculator to display

a comma for the decimal point and a dot for the three-digit separator. To do so, turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the [.] key while you press [ON]. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

The dot (".") on the "Total ODO" display is not decimal point, it is thousands (digit grouping) separator. If you want to set e.g. 330.75 km, then you enter "00.331". If you want to set 1145 km, you enter "01.145". The decimal point on this Sigma computer is denoted using decimal comma "," (as used in German and other lagnuages/countries) even if you set the language of the computer to English. You can see decimal comma e.g. in "TRIP DIST" display.

Near the 0 key, the calculator has the markings **dot forward slash comma in BLUE.** Thus to change the decimal mark from dot to comma or from comma to dot, press the LEFT SHIFT Blue key, followed by 0. The radix mark will toggle from one to the other.

how do i increase decimal places on a sharp el735?

Jun 02, 2010 | Sharp EL-738 Scientific Calculator

Hello,

To convert from decimal to fraction and vice versa pess the [S<->D] key. Alternatively, if one of the whole numbers (integers) has decimal mark (dot) the result will be decimal.

Hope it helps.

The calculator has two digit-separation marks: The dot [.] and the comma [,].

By default the decimal (radix) mark is the dot, and the comma serves as a 3-digit separator. In European countries (especially France) the radix mark is the comma and the 3-digit separator is the dot.

To switch the marks:
