SOURCE: Hi, I have a Sharp

There is nothing to fix as what you describe is not a flaw, it is a feature. You calculator has a key marked CHANGE between (x,y) key and ) key. To change a result from fraction to decimal or from decimal to fraction, you press the CHANGE key.

If you have the manual for the calculator it should tell you there. If you dont have it you maybe able to download it for free that should tell you how to remove the decimal point.

Hi suebie50

Have a great day.

To change the output to decimal form, you can do the following:

Go to Math mode, then SHIFT, MODE (set-up), 2 (lineIO).

The answer will show in decimal format.

You can also use this website whenever you have further questions in using you calculator:

<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>

In MathIO mode the calculator tries to display answers as fractions whenever possible. You can convert a single result to decimal by pressing the SD key just above DEL. To have all results come out in decimal format, press SHIFT MODE 2 to select LineIO mode.

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][5][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

I bought a classpad 300 plus but I dont know how to operate it. I saw some books for classpad 300 and I really want to buy some. However everytime I try to buy, there is always a classpad that goes with the books . Can I buy books for classpad with out buying a calculator anymore?

You have to set how the calculator handles numbers. To do this follow these steps:
1. Press the 'MODE' button. This brings up the calculator's main settings page.
2. Scroll down until you reach a field titled 'Exact/Approx...'. This is the setting for how the calculator handles numbers, whether it will show the exact answer (which is usually in fraction format) or whether it will show an approximate number (which will be in decimal format).
3. Press the right arrow which will bring up the options for that setting. You must now choose between three ways of handling numbers:
-'1:AUTO' will determine which type of answer the calculator will give based on what numbers you want it to calculate (e.g. if you want an answer in decimal format just add a decimal somewhere in your problem).
-'2:EXACT' will automatically display all answers in either whole number format or in fraction format.
-'3:APPROXIMATE' will automatically display all answers in decimal format.
4. After you have selected one of those options pres enter one more time to get out of the 'MODE' dialogue and return to the 'HOME' screen. Now try a problem and see what happens.
Personally I like using 'AUTO' because then I don't have to keep returning to 'MODE' when I want either or.
Hope this helped, I had the same problem when I first started using the TI-89.

Values are displayed in decimal form automatically whenever the total number of digits of a fractional value exceed 10.
Otherwise you will have to press the d/c key each time to make it a decimal.
