Re: FIX numbers

If you press the setup key then 1 under FSE it will say TAB (0-9)? enter the amount of decimal places you want and it will change that for you.

I cant figure out what is the shift key on my calculator. I have a Sharp EL-531W. I tried the 2NDF key and its not coming out right.

Regardless, that is the markings on the SHIFT key on Sharp Calculators. The 2ndF key accesses the functions that are marked on the face of the calculator, not on the top of the keys.

Why won't my sharp EL 531W give me the correct answer for SIN e.g SIN 30 should = 0.5 but my calculator gives me 0.453990

Your calculator is set for GRAD instead of DEG, it means that it takes your input in gradian instead of degrees. You should press the DRG button until it displays DEG instead of GRAD.

I have a Sharp EL-531W.All keys work except for sin cos tan hyp.

No solution, but I have the exact same problem with a Sharp EL-531W calculator. Doesn't matter whether mode is degrees, radians, etc., and resetting with button in back has no effect.

How do i display very small exponents on the sharp 531w calculator... for example: the screen simply shows 0.0000000 for the answer 7.4*10^-14 ...i can't get answers correctly on a test or working a...

You have several number display formats : Normal1, Normal2, Sci, ENG
If a number is too small or too large and the calculator cannot display it with the necessary number of digits (to satisfy your of decimal digits) the calculator uses Scientific notation
7.4E-14 =7.4x10^(-14)
If you were to use the norma1 or normal2 format you will have
.0000000000000074 but your calculator displays only the first 10 places

You should learn to use and interpret results in scientific format.

Hope it helps

for the mean, just add them together and divide answer by the amount of figures you put in. as for the others, i'm not sure a standard scientific calculator will do that

Sharp EL 531w . the calculator doesn't turn on.

Press the reset button on the back. If that does not work, batteries may be dead. Once you replace them press [ON/C].
Hope it helps.

Half-life exponential problem. Can't get the same answer as example

Here is how you enter it.
[+/-]0.693/8x4[2ndF][e^x][=] result is 0.7071588193 or as you wrote 0.7071
some calculators show an error message if you enter the [+/-] (the negative of a number before the number itself).
In that case enter 0.693 then press [+/-]. the calculator should put a small - sign before the 0.
You can try

Hope it clarifies things.
