Conversion is not always possible. If a decimal result has just been found and displayed, pressing the [a b/c] fraction button may convert the result still in answer memory (ans) to a fraction. But if you alter the value of answer memory and type in the (approximate) decimal value that you copied from the screen, you may not get your correct fraction.

<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.

Press the S<-->D button to switch between decimal and fraction displays. Bear in mind that the calculator can not display all numbers as fractions.

The calculator has two Input/Output modes: MathIO and LineIO.

LineIO

LineIO is the old way of entering numbers in calculators and results are always displayed as decimal numbers. Some calculators have a fraction feature and would convert a fraction to a decimal number and back.

MathIO

In MathIO you enter expressions as you would by hand or as you see them written in textbooks.

In this mode, results are by default displayed as fraction or fractions/ radicals.

Conversion

To convert the fraction/radical to decimals you just press the [SD] key. If you press again you cycle through all the available display formats.

So you can (if you want) use the MathIO to manipulate expressions and convert only the last result to decimal. By the way, fractions and radicals are generally more accurate than their decimal representations.

SetUP

If however seeing fractions and radicals is too painful, just set the LineIO as your default mode. To do so press [SHIFT][MODE] to open (SETUP), then select [2:LineIO]

Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.

There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE

Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.

To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.

If result displayed is to be converted, press the S-D key. This will toggle display from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal.

To force a result to be in decimal format press SHIFT = instead of just =.

To configure calculator to display only decimals, press the SHIFT MODE key sequence to enter SETUP and seledct 2:LineIO.

If the result is already calculated and displayed, press the
[S<=>D] key It will convert a fraction or radical to decimal. This
is always possible. If the result is decimal it may be converted to a
fraction or a radical (Not always possible).

If the expression to be evaluated is still in the command line and you have not pressed the [=] key, you can force the result to be displayed in decimal format by pressing [SHIFT][=] instead of just [=].

More permanently. If you do n o care for fractions and radicals, set the Input/Outpout mode to LineIO. To do do press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) screen and select [2:LineIO]

Hello,

**Press [SHIFT][MODE][1:MathIO]**.

When in MathIO, you can obtain decimal results if you press [SHIFT][=] instead of just [=] to calculate.

Also, you can use the [S<=>D] key to toggle from one display format to the other ( Fraction <-> Decimals) or (Radicals<->Decimals).

Hope it helps.

Hello,

To convert fractions to decimals or decimals to fractions, you use the [S<->D] key. Each time you press the key the result is displayed in the other format.

Alternatively, If you multiply or divide two integer numbers put a decimal mark at the end of one of the numbers (any one). The result will be displayed in decimal format.

Hope it helps.

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

(SHIFT)(MODE/SETUP)(2) to change to decimal

1) Press the "SHIFT" button

2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button

3) Press the "2" button

This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)
