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.

When you are dividing two whole numbers but you need the answer to be in decimal form, how many numbers after the decimal need to remain especially when there many


It depends on what you need. If you divide 100 by 3 you'll get 33.333333333333333333333333333333 and a lot more 3's.
If you need it to be 2 decimals behind the comma your answer will be 33.33 if you want it to be 3 decimals you'll just end up with 33.333 etc. etc.

So it completely depends on what you need to calculate.

What function should it be on to get a whole number answer for division problems EX: 15 divided by 2


15 divided by 2 isn't a whole number.

If the calculator is showing a fraction and you want to see it as a number, press the S--D key to switch between symbolic and decimal values. To have all results appear in numeric form, press SHIFT MODE 2 to select the LineIO mode.

If you want to set the calculator to show only whole number, press SHIFT MODE 6 0 to select FIX 0 display mode.

My calculator will not divide numbers if they do not go into each other evenly, ex. 73/12.


If you mean the result shows up as 73/12, then it is dividing 73 by 12 and coming up with 73/12 as the result, which is perfectly correct. To convert a single result to decimal, press the S--D key. To have all results come out in decimal, press SHIFT MODE 2 to select the LineIO mode.

My calculator is returning an answer with a 7 for division


You need to set the number of decimal places to 1 or more.

• Press [2nd] [MODE] and scroll to FLOAT.
• Press the right arrow key until the number of decimal places needed is highlighted.
• Press the [ENTER] key.

For 2 decimal places, 2 should be highlighted. All answers will then be rounded to 2 decimal places.

• Press [2nd] [QUIT] to return to the home screen.

When I try to divide numbers that would leave a remainder like 1 divided by 6 which should give me an answer like 0.16666666666 instead all it says for an answer is 1/6. it does say in the manual to input...


Hello,
To convert from fractions to decimals, and from decimals to fractions use the [S<-->D] key. If you want your decimal results to have a fixed number of decimal places press [SHIFT][SETUP][6:Fix]. Screen shows Fix 0~9. Enter the number of decimal places exemple 3.
Dans ce cas 1/6 is displayes ase 0.167.
Hope it helps.

When I divide answers are always given in Fractions. Can I change it to come out in decimals?


To change from Fraction display to Decimal display on the Casio fx-300ES (and probably other calculators)

1) Press the "SHIFT" button
2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button
3) Press the "2" button
This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)

Doing all of the above but pressing the "1" button instead of the "2" puts it back into MATHIO mode (Fraction)

Hope this Helps
