Hi Jennifer,
This may be because of your settings. To change them press SET UP, then select 0 for FSE. Press the down arrow and choose 3 for NORM1 - the calculator should now stop rounding off your answers.

^Top What features do our calculators have?
The attached chart shows comparisons of the different calculator models. This includes graphing, scientific and printing calculators. download the chart here
^Top What is the [F CUT 5/4] switch or [DEC] F, 0, 2 button for?
The HR-8TE/HR-8TM have a [DEC] key with F, 0, 2, and 5/4 over it, while many other calculators models have a switch labeled [F CUT 5/4].
The button or switch can control rounding off to a certain number of decimal places. F is floating point (no F indicator on screen), 0 rounds off to 0 places after decimal point, and 2 rounds off to 2 places after decimal point.
The 5/4 applies to either the 0 or 2 modes, and describes the type of rounding off that is performed. The calculator will round down if the digit after the one you are rounding to is 4 or lower, and round up if the digit is 5 or higher.
^Top What is the [5,4,3,2,1,0 ADD (2)] switch used for?
This switch is used to determine how many decimal places your answer is displayed in.
ADD (2) is often used for monetary calculations, so that it is not necessary to enter the decimal point. It is automatically placed two decimal places from the end for cents. For example, entering 123 will display as 1.23.

^Top Why do I get the wrong answer when doing a percent calculation?

The calculator is rounding all of my results. I think this is a feature made active by the 5/4 button but I can't seem to turn it off.

You cannot. You must choose either round up, round down or round off (5/4) position, and then set the decimals switch. You would usually use round off (5/4) and decimal set to 2.

My calculator is rounding to nearest whole number. How do I fix this?

You should move the rounding switch on your calculator. It has three options: an up arrow on the left side (for rounding up) a 5/4 sign in the middle (for rounding off) and a down arrow on the right side (for rounding down). borbalint.png
You may also have to move the decimal point selector switch to set the decimal point position.

Whenever I try to add or subtract a number with a decimal in it, when I press the + or - key, it rounds the number I entered either up or down to the nearest whole number.

You have the calculator set to round everything in the display to zero digits after the decimal point. To change this, press SHIFT [DISP] and then a digit representing the number of digits you want to the right of the decimal point.

I must of hit a button, now my calculator rounds all my numbers how do i fix that?

There should be a switch that has 5/4 on it. This is the rounding switch. Place it in the Up position to round all numbers up, 5/4 to round down when the next digit is less than 5 and round up when 5 or greater, and the down position to always round down.
