Hello,
The numbers are not crazy: The calculator uses the Exponential Format if the number to be displayed is too small. What it means is as follows:
5.33... x10^(-3) = 0.0053333: Notice that the digit before the decimal point is at the third position after the decimal point.
in 5.333..x10^(-4) = 0.0005333 it is at the fourth position after the point.

Use the FIX display format and set the number of decimal digits to be displayed to be 2 o 3 or more depending on your needs. Instructions are on screen capture below.

Hope it helps.

How do I find out how much percentage of an increase from \$655.00 to \$1037.00?

The solution is a simple division problem. Divide the SMALLER number by the LARGER number (655.00 divided by 1037)

The answer is 0.6316297010607522 or simply put the percentage increase is 63.16 percent more (or you can say that 1037 is 163.16 percent of 655 - its a word game there).

How do you work out how to find a % of a number on a calculater

a simple way to go about finding a percent value is to divide the new number by the original number. this will in turn give a decimal value. the returned decimal value can easily be converted into a percent (out of 100) value by multiplying by 100.
ie: 2 divided by 3 = .666667, or around 67% 6 divided by 4 = 1.5 or 150%
as far as i know there is no direct function to calculate percentages built into many calculators, although a small few do in fact have that ability.
hope that helps :)

When I divided a problem EX. 3/2 the calculator will not answer in decimal

Hi,
You are not dividing problems, you are dividing number. This said, there is a simple way to ensure that the results of divisions are displayed in decimal form: It consists in putting a decimal mark (decimal point) at the end one integer (whole number)
ex:
3/2. gives 1.5
3./2 gives 1.5
3./2. gives 1.5

You can also configure your calculator to display all numerical results in decimal format. To do that press [MODE][F2]. Use the down arrow to select the ligne Exact/Approx, then use the right arrow to unfold the menu options 1:Auto
2:Exact
3:Approximate
Select 3:Approximate and press [ENTER]

Hope it helps.

Calculate Quarters between any two dates

not sure if this is what you are after entirely but should at least help you out some what

=DATEDIF(A3,C3,"m")/3

As you said you cant just divide by 3 but I have divided the formula by 3 to see how many 3 months will go into the output you could maybe have another formula to divide it by 2 to see if it will divide by 2 to see if you get a whole number or not, if you do then you can just return the first part before the dot ( using split function ) and if the value is less then 1 then obviously the 3 months has not passed between the 2 dates

Kenmore He3t soap dispenser divider missing

You can find a replacement divider at searspartdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Dispenser" heading on the next page for item number 24 (part number 8181730). There's an excellent exploded view parts diagram to refer to for ease of component identification. I hope this is what you were looking for.

Excel Formula

Yes you can and there are two choices. The simple solution is to label a cell "divide by" and put your number in that filed. Then, by changing only that, your answer (in a separate cell) will be available.
There are more complex solutions -assuming your divide by number had some rhyme and reason that could be put in place but.....try this first and at a later date go back and play. Learning to do that will give you more than a fair amount of Excel expertise....something you may find fairly valuable as you continue on using Excel. FYI...I have developed full blown applications on Excel....it is an excellent tool. Hope this helps....Tango.
