Decimal selector problem??

Hey everyone,
I am having a problem with setting this calculator to put the decimal in place without actually having to put it in maually? Forgive me for my kindergarten-like language when talking about this, as I am far from a guru or wiz on calculators! All I know is when I want to enter $300.00, I want to be able to key it in without hitting the decimal manually like I have been able to with past calculators?
Any help is much appreciated!

Jenny

The decimal switch goes to +.
This is the setting for money, so 300.00 would be entered as 30000.
F=floating
2,3,4,5 just rounds to that many digits past the decimal, but the decimal must be entered in these settings

Why are totals rounding off


In the product details of this calculator, it states that there is a "decimal point selector." This is normally a slider starting with the letter F followed by the numbers 0123 etc. It is probably on 0. You can set the number of decimals to whatever you want, or use F for full numbers. For example, if you set this to 2, you should always get 2 decimals.

Good luck,

Paul

How do I stop calculator from rounding up?


Hi Carol,

There are switches at the top just under the screen called the "Rounding Switch" and the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

With the rounding switch you can select rounding up or down, but you may also want to use the second switch to show more digits after the decimal. Put it in the "F" position to show all decimal places. When it is in the 0, 1, 2 positions, it strips off and round the numbers.

Here is the link to the manual as well, look at the section detailing the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

(You will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader to look at the manual.)

Hope this will help you. http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/software/calculator/P23-DHV-(USA-HWB).pdf

I want to set the decimal place without using the decimal key--example: hit the 1234 keys and the shows $12.34


You can select the A (K . A) and then the # of decimal places (F 6 3 2 1 0) you want. So if you want to enter 1234 & it calculates 12.34, this will work.

What is the default setting for the f cut 5/4 and the 4320 add 2 I don't know what to have these options set at thanks EW Seattle


The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:
f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard
4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)
3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)
2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)
0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)
add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)
Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

Decimal placing


Above the feed button is an area for controlling the decimal placement. By leaving the slider on +, you have to manually put the decimal in.
0 - Means no decimal will be placed.
1 - Put it one place to the end. Ex: 4132.5
2 - Will make it read 413.25
3 - Will be 41.325

And so on.

SETTINGS


Check the Decimal / Add Selector. It shoul be set to "A" (Add mode), to permit addition and subtraction of numbers without entry of the decimal point.

I lost my decimal point


You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.
To change to add mode, make sure the 'K . A' switch is in the 'A' position. To get 2 decimal places in the answer, move the selector in the 'F 6 3 2 1 0' switch to the '2' position.

You can see the above described at

this Sharp.com page which shows the users manual. The manual shows examples.
