    I should have included the model number in my comment but forgot. It is an Sharp EL-735. I might be missing something but I can't find the buttons that you are refering to. Thanks for all your help.

Hello
The floating point number display (FIX) is set to zero decimal digits. All your. numbers with decimal parts are rounded.
Look for a key that says [FIX]. Press it and enter a number say3 If I guessed right (Sharp makes numerous calculators) your numbers will show 3 decimal digits.

If there is no such key look for a [MODE] Button. Press the button. If you have a new screen with differents choices look for Format, Float,
On some older calculators there is a table below the display. At the left of the table one finds MODE--> or -->MODE
If it says there Mode DEG:4 that means to have angles in degrees you enter [MODE][4].

I think I exhausted all possibilities. Without you model number, I cannot do more.

Hope it helps.

    I could not find the manual for your calculator EL-735, but I found the one for the EL-738. In the EL-738 they use [SETUP] 0 0

    [SETUP] 0 1 , [SETUP] 0 2 and [SETUP 0 3. Each one of them fixes the number of decimal places. [SETUP] 0 1 is for scientific notation. If you activate the Scientific notation you must enter the number of decimal digits ( [SETUP] 0 1 2 . The last 2 fixes the number of decimals at 2.



    Sorry for the misuderstanding. I very much hope it works for you. Manufacturers use similar procedures for their machines.

HP 12 C display does not show entire numbers. How do I fix?


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."


25096057-rvrejqbjq4zuw4cbinsyjvsy-5-0.png "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.

How do I convert a decimal into a whole number?


You can do that only if the decimal part (the part after the decimal point) is exactly 0. Anything else will be a rational number { a fraction with integer numerator and denominator}

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.

HP12c seems to not have enough room for numbers BEFORE the decimal point. I try to enter the number "85" and all that will show up is the 8.000000000


Initial Setup

One adjustment is important before we get started. By default the 12C displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press "F" and then the number of decimal places you wish to display. I would press "F 5 " to display 5 decimal places. That's it, the calculator is ready to go.
You need to hold the "F" 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).

My casio fx-992s is showing fix and deg on the screen. I think the "fix" is causing me a problem but I can't get rid of it. All my decimals are being rounded up to whole numbers! Thanks


The DEG is merely indicating that the angular mode is set to degrees. If you want to change it to radians or grads, press SHIFT MODE and make your selection.

Likewise, the FIX is merely indicating that the calculator is displaying numbers in fixed decimal notation. If you're not seeing any digits to the right of the decimal point, then you're in FIX 0 mode. To change it, press SHIFT MODE. You can choose FIX and the calculator will prompt for the number of digits, or you can select NORM.

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 want to increase the number of decimal places

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.

Wrong format for numbers displayed in HP 12C


It's been awhile since I used one of these but there should be a decimal function on the keys. Make sure you put a 2 in there before pressing it and it should display the format using 200.00

My TI-89 cant do simple calculations.


You have to set how the calculator handles numbers. To do this follow these steps: 1. Press the 'MODE' button. This brings up the calculator's main settings page. 2. Scroll down until you reach a field titled 'Exact/Approx...'. This is the setting for how the calculator handles numbers, whether it will show the exact answer (which is usually in fraction format) or whether it will show an approximate number (which will be in decimal format). 3. Press the right arrow which will bring up the options for that setting. You must now choose between three ways of handling numbers: -'1:AUTO' will determine which type of answer the calculator will give based on what numbers you want it to calculate (e.g. if you want an answer in decimal format just add a decimal somewhere in your problem). -'2:EXACT' will automatically display all answers in either whole number format or in fraction format. -'3:APPROXIMATE' will automatically display all answers in decimal format. 4. After you have selected one of those options press enter one more time to get out of the 'MODE' dialogue and return to the 'HOME' screen. Now try a problem and see what happens. Personally I like using 'AUTO' because then I don't have to keep returning to 'MODE' when I want either or. Hope this helped, I had the same problem when I first started using the TI-89.
