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.

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.

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.

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).

You may also have to move the decimal point selector switch to set the decimal point position.

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.
