Two separate issues here.

The C indicates the calculator is using compound interest for the odd period. To switch to simple interest, press STO EEX

To switch the radix mark, turn the calculator off, press and hold the . (decimal point) key, press the ON key, then release both keys.

Decimal is the base-10 notational system for representing real numbers. The expression of a number using the decimal
system is called its decimal expansion,
examples of which include 1, 13, 2028, 12.1, and 3.14159.

Each of the arabic numerals 0 to 9 is called a decimal digit, and the period placed to the right of the units place in a decimal number is called
the decimal point (or, in the
case that a comma is instead used for this purpose, the decimal comma).

The **decimal** is a way of managing numbers that has ten as a starting point, or base. It is sometimes called the **base ten** or **denary**
numeral system. The word "decimal" is also used instead of the word
"period" to point out the dot that is sometimes used separates the
positions of the numbers in this system. Almost everyone uses this nowadays and prefers the convenience of it probably because it shows up most often in calculations in nature and has "one" as another starting point for the system. The number one is usually the easiest to work with in calculations.

The calculator has two digit-separation marks: The dot [.] and the comma [,].

By default the decimal (radix) mark is the dot, and the comma serves as a 3-digit separator. In European countries (especially France) the radix mark is the comma and the 3-digit separator is the dot.

To switch the marks:

It's been awhile since I used one of these but there should be a decimal function on the keys. Make sure you put a 2 in there before pressing it and it should display the format using 200.00

Turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the .(decimal key) while you press the on button. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display
