If I enter any combination of numbers such as 1.05, the decimal appears 15.00. The zero won't enter and the decimal always appears after the last number. Suggestions?

Yes, for this type of accounting calculator you need to specify how many decimal places you want to deal with using the function key.

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

In your situation you would do 1.05 (f) 2

This should do it!

Thanks

How to Use PadLock?


FOLLOW THIS STEPS
1.Spin the dial at least three times to the right (clockwise), all the way around.
This "clears" the lock of any previous numbers. If at any point in putting in your combination you mess up, do this again to start over.
2.Enter your combination. Turn the dial to the right and stop at your first number. Always start with a turn to the right!
  • For your second number, turn the dial to the left, going past zero and your first number. Then stop at your second number.
    • Some locks are a bit odd or finicky -- if your locker isn't opening after you put the three numbers in correctly, try turning left past your second number once and stopping on it on the next go around.
  • For your third number, turn the dial to the right and go directly to the last number. Leave your lock on this number. Always remember: right, left, right.

The words FIX DEG appear on the screen and I can't get rid of it. It doesn't calculate properly


DEG says that the angle unit is set to degrees. You can change it to RADians, or GRADs. However much you want to get rid of all of them you will always have one of them. Learn to live with them.
FIX says that the decimal displays will always show a fixed number of decimals. You can decide how many you keep. Apparently your calculator is configured not to show any decimal digits: the number of fixed digits is set to zero. Change it to some other number
There are other display formats : Engineering ENG, and Scientific (SCI)
There is another format (possibly 2) called Norm 1 or Norm 2.
Set you calculator to one of the Normal formats.
Press SHIFT MODE to enter (Setup) and configure.
Advice: Learn to use your calculator. The best way to achieve mastery is to look inside the manual whenever you do not understand something.

Significant figures


Press SHIFT MODE 6 then select the desired number of digits after the decimal point. Alternatively, press SHIFT MODE 7 then select the desired number of significant digits.

Convert to scientific notation 45,700


45 700 = 45700.00..... Notice the decimal mark inserted after the second 0.
In scientific notation you must have ONE digit before the decimal mark: 4.7500 (it is not finished).
By moving the decimal mark from its original place after the second zero to its new place after the 4, you have divided the number by 10000 (one zero for each position change). To recover the original number you must multiply 4.57 by 10000. This is compacted as *10^4.
Thus 45700=4.57*10^4 or as the calculator displays it 4.57E04
If you are entering a number in scientific notation do not use *10^04, but press the [SHIFT][,] for a TI83Plus, followed by the exponent.

Dividing decimals


What is the problem? Enter one number (decimal or otherwise) press the divide by key and enter the second number. As long as the second number is not equal to zero you get a meaningful result. Try it. No special handling is necessary.

While using Casio fx-300ES , I am unable to get answers in decimals. For eg. 3/10...should give 0.3, but the answer is again displayed as 3/10. any way to solve this issue?


The calculator has two Input/Output modes: MathIO and LineIO.

LineIO
LineIO is the old way of entering numbers in calculators and results are always displayed as decimal numbers. Some calculators have a fraction feature and would convert a fraction to a decimal number and back.

MathIO
In MathIO you enter expressions as you would by hand or as you see them written in textbooks.
In this mode, results are by default displayed as fraction or fractions/ radicals.
Conversion
To convert the fraction/radical to decimals you just press the [SD] key. If you press again you cycle through all the available display formats.
So you can (if you want) use the MathIO to manipulate expressions and convert only the last result to decimal. By the way, fractions and radicals are generally more accurate than their decimal representations.

SetUP
If however seeing fractions and radicals is too painful, just set the LineIO as your default mode. To do so press [SHIFT][MODE] to open (SETUP), then select [2:LineIO]

5/4x-18=-3 Ti 84 plus One: just press enter/solve Two: press 2nd Test (Math) then press enter Every time I put in and equation using the above method for the equal sign. it either takes me back to...


If you wan to solve an equation using the SOLVE feature you enter it as follows (your example)
You should rewrite it as 5/4*X-18+3 (= 0). Implicitly, the calculator assumes that the right side is ZERO and you do not enter any right side nor an equal sign.
Type in
5/4 [*] [X,T,theta, n] -18 +3 [ALPHA] [ENTER] (SOLVE)
You should get an answer -780/47 or the decimal equivalent (depending on display mode.)

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'm having problems programming radio frequencies on my scanner.


You didn't mention the make or model of your scanner, so I can't provide a response specific to your unit, but the trailing zero is meaningless, so there's no reason to enter it. Some bands on some scanners will only accept three decimal digits, but the scanner should round off your entry and still receive the intended frequency.

What is the serial number for this model


VX8500 does not have an ESN. The VX8500 has an MEID. The MEID is a 14 digit hexadecimal value with the following format:
The decimal representation is calculated as follows:

a). Separate the 14 digit hexadecimal MEID into two parts:
Part 1 – the first 8 digits representing the manufacturer code (digits RRXXXXXX in
the figure).
Part 2 – the last 6 digits representing the serial number. (digits ZZZZZZ in the figure).

b). Convert the hexadecimal value of each part into the decimal equivalent:
Part 1 – 10 decimal digits zero filled.
Part 2 – 8 decimal digits zero filled.
If the decimal equivalent of each part is less than the number of required digits, right align
and zero fill to create the required length.

c). Concatenate Part 1 and Part 2 to create an 18 digit decimal number.

Example:
Hex MEID = AF 01 23 45 0A BC DE
Part 1, manufacturer code is 0xAF012345 = 2936087365
Part 2, serial number is 0x0ABCDE = 00703710
Therefore, the decimal representation of the MEID is 29360 87365 0070 3710
