My Casio fx-300ES calculator's output is in fraction form. How do I change the setting so that it gives me a normal decimal output without having to push the "eng" button

Re: How do I get decimal answers

I had the same problem. To change the output to decimals, do the following:

Go to Math mode, then SHIFT, MODE (set-up), 2 (lineIO). This will cause answers to show in decimal format. I hope this helps.

I was able to find a manual at: http://www.generalmanual.com/Calculators/Casio-FX-300ES-Scientific-Financial-Calculator.htm

To change a displayed result into a fraction, press the [S=D] key.

To force a result to be displayed as a decimal number before it is displayed, press [SHIF][=] instead of [=].

Set the Input Output Display mode to MathIO. In thsi mode answers are given in fraction-radical forms whenever possible. To toggle between Fraction/radical and decimal, press the S<=>D key.

To access the above screen press [SHIFT][MODE](SetUp).

Your problem is not with the scientific display, rather it is with decimal representation (approximate) or fraction/radical (exact). representation.

If your results are in fraction/radical form press the [S<>D] key to switch from one to the other.

The calculator is by default in the MATHIO t output mode: results are in fraction/radical form.

If you don't like to work with this mode just change the IO mode to LineIO. To do so, press [SHIFT][Mode](Setup) and selct** 2:LineIO**

To convert a single value between the symbolic and decimal formats, press the S--D key (above the DEL key). To have all results come out in symbolic form press SHIFT [MODE] 1 to select the MthIO mode.

Be aware that the calculator cannot display all values in symbolic form.

I understand your frustration, but believe me there is nothing wrong with your calculator. You just have to invest a minimum amount of time to familiarize yourself with its powerful capabilities.

No matter. Your calculator has to input output modes. MathIO and LineIO. MthIO is new and it allows you to enter expressions as if you were doing it by hand (like in textbooks). LineIO is the old way.

In MthIO your displayed results are fractions or radicals (roots) or a mixture of the two. BUT if the screen cannot fit the fraction or radical form, the calculator will use decimal to display the result.

In LineIO you only have decimals results.

To get fraction or radical results configure the calculator to use MthIO. In this mode, if you want a result converted to decimal, just press the SD key. It will toggle between the two.

To set MthIO, press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [1:MthIO]

To set LineIO, press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [2:LineIO]

Press SHIFT MODE 2 to select LineIO mode. Now all results will come out in decimal form.

To change from Fraction display to Decimal display on the Casio fx-300ES (and probably other calculators)

1) Press the "SHIFT" button

2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button

3) Press the "2" button

This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)

Doing all of the above but pressing the "1" button instead of the "2" puts it back into MATHIO mode (Fraction)

Hope this Helps

(SHIFT)(MODE/SETUP)(2) to change to decimal

1) Press the "SHIFT" button

2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button

3) Press the "2" button

This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)
