There is a button that switches answers from fraction to decimal and decimal to fractions. It is hidden under the PRB(probability) button and is labeled F<>D. Push [2nd] PRB to get to it. For your example, you would enter .125 [2nd] PRB then enter and you get 1/8.
To get an improper fraction(27/2) to a mixed number and the other way around. Use the same process as above except you push use the button hidden under the A b/c button.So 27/2 would become 13 1/2.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The fraction button is usually marked [a b/c]. Its shifted function [d/c] converts a mixed number into an improper fraction.
To enter a mixed number, say 7 3/5
Enter 7, press the [a b/c] key, enter 3, press the [a b/c] key, enter 5. Press =/EXE
<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors. <br /><br />At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers. <br />If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to <b>disable</b> <b>the WriteView display mode</b>. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.<br /><b>Disabling WriteView<br /></b><br />Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.<br /><br />There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE<br /><br />Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.<br /><br />To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.<br /><br /><b>NOTE</b>: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode. <br /></span>
For such a sophisticated calculator (computer) a simple thing like entering a fraction seems too difficult to explain. There are a great number of scientific calculators that handle fractions easily. Anyway, to manipulate fraction without their being calculated numerically, you must use the CAS. Press MODE then F3 CAS. In the CAS screen, move cursor to the _numeric option. If it is cheked, uncheck it by pressing F3:Check. Press OK to exit the CAS configuration screen. Press OK again to exit the MODE screen. You can know enter fractions using the division key (Z) If you type 1/5 + 13/7 you will see 72/35
Now if you enter 1/5 then press the ENTER key you will see 1/5. But if you add to that 13/7 you will see 1/5+13/7 and the result will not be calculated. To calculate the resulting fraction you must press EVAL (Green Left Shift ANS) ENTER. As you can see, this is not the most efficient way to handle fractions.
If you are using a Sharp or Casio scientific calculator and you would like your answer to be shown as a fraction, simply hit the [ab/c] button after you have entered your calculation.
15/6 = 2.5
press [ab/c] and your screen will show 2/1/2 which means 2 and 1/2.
