If you mean it is not showing everything after the decimal point, you can change that by pressing the [f] key followed by the number of decimal places to display. For example, to restrict it to 2 places, press [f][2]. If you want to see 4 places, press [f][4].

To show all possible decimal places, use the sequence [f][9].

From the manual (http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00363319.pdf):

"To display a different number of decimal places, press f followed by a digit key (0 through 9) specifying the number of decimal places. In the following examples, notice how the displayed form of the number inside the calculator - 14.87456320 - is rounded to the specified number of digits."

"Although nine decimal places were

specified after f, only eight are

displayed since the display can

show a total of only 10 digits. "

The standard display format, plus the specified number of decimal places, remain in effect until you change them; they are not reset each time the calculator is turned on. However, if Continuous Memory is reset, when the calculator is next turned on numbers will be displayed in the standard display format with two decimal places

shown.

If a calculated answer is either too small or too large to be displayed in the standard display format, the display format automatically switches to scientific notation. The display returns to the standard display format for all numbers that can be displayed in that format.

By default the calculator is set to display two digits after the decimal point (for dollars and cents). If you'd rather have no digits after the decimal point, press 2nd [FORMAT] 0 .

Alternatively, you can press 2nd [FORMAT] 9 for floating decimal.

Alternatively, you can press 2nd [FORMAT] 9 for floating decimal.

This could be a result of a rounding error. Make sure that the calculator is set to at least 5 decimal places.

In order to do this, press [2nd][Format].

Type in the number of decimals to be displayed (0-9) and push [Enter].

To specify a floating point decimal, enter '9'.

In order to do this, press [2nd][Format].

The calculator has several decimal display formats: FIX, SCI, NORM and ENG.

Here are examples of calculations with different formats and how to set them.

It may be a good idea for a user to get accustomed to the scientific display format, because it is the one most calculators adopt when the result to be displayed is too large or too small--when there are not enough places on the screen to display the result.

To help you with the power of 10 notation

1 billion =1000 000 000 =1 E 09 (9 zeros after 1 >> exponent 9)

1 million=1 000 000 = 1 E 06 (6 zeros after 1 >> exponent 6

1 thousand= 1000 =1 E03 (3 zeros after 1 >> exponent 3)

One= 1 = 1 E0

One tenth = 1/10 =0.1: the 1 is ONE position after the decimal mark>> exponent -01

One hundredth =1/100 =0.01 the 1 occupies the 2ND position to the right of the decimal point, exponent -02

etc.

1/1000 =0.001 = 1E-03

1/10000=0.0001=1E-04 (1 in 4th position to the right of decimal mark)

1/1000000=0.000001 = 1E-06 (1 in 6th position to the right of decimal mark)

1E-09 =0.000000001 : the 1 is in the 9th position to the right of decimal mark.

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][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

I found this solution on the HP website. Turn it on, and do what it says. Then turn it off and back on again, and the extra decimal places should show.

- Press and release the gold PREFIX key (f).
- Press the number key for the desired number of decimal places (0 through 9).
