(1/10)^2=0.01

To calculate the inverse just invert the fraction 1/10 becomes 10 and you calculate 10^2=100 =1/0.01.

On the Sharps, look for a key marked 1/x or x^-1. If the marking is on the key you just press it while the number whose reciprocal you want is displayed. If the marking is on the face of the calculator you will have to press 2nd F before the key.

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.

Hello,

To make sure that results are always in decimal format, put a decimal mark (point) at the end of one integer.

ex:**1./2 or 1/2. **or** 1./2.** display as 0.5, so does **1. + 1/2**

To convert from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal press**a b/c**

To convert from proper to improper fractions use**[SHIFT][d/c] **

Hope it helps.

2ND [FIX] 4

Try pressing the FSE button to switch between Fixed, Scientific, Engineering, and Normal displays. When in Fixed display, you can use <2ndF> < TAB > then enter a number from 0 to 9 to choose the number of decimal places in that display. To reset EVERYTHING to factory defaults: With the calculator off, press and hold these three keys: <2ndF> < ) > < ON/C > then release all three. The calculator will go through a series of tests (it takes a few seconds) and then be at its factory defaults. I have uploaded the manual for this calculator at www.theusermanualsite.com.
