By default the BA-II Plus displays two digits to the right of the decimal point, for dollars and cents. To change the number of digits, press 2nd [FORMAT] and a digit from 0-8. Use 9 for floating decimal display.

### How do u get % on it

On calculators you do not usually get percents. Instead, you get values which can be converted to a percent. For example what percent is 245 out of 987. You divide 245/987=.248. This is essentially the same as saying 24.8 percent. You move the decimal over 2 values. You can also round to get a nice percent number such as 25 percent.
If you are trying to put in a percent lets say you have to find 47% of 80. You just multiply .47 * 80= 38.4

As I added on to the previous solution on the other problem.

"Okay, I did what the best solution did and worked with it.

"1. press 2nd F (left top corner)

3. press 0 (if you don't want calculator to round off any decimals)"

In order to get your exact value of pi, in step #3, instead of 0, press the decimal [ . ]
This should give you no decimals when entering a number and give you 3.141592654... when you input pi.
Hope that works/helps."
