TO GET ALWAYS DECIMAL NUMBERS PRESS MODE KEY; PRESS CAS (F3 KEY); USE THE4  SILVER BUTTONS TO GET TO THE NUMERIC OPTION--THEN PRESS F3 (the check mark).  Finally hit OK (f6) twice to get back.

You can press "rightshift" then "->Num" (enter) to convert a fraction to a decimal. To set it permanently, press "->Num" while holding down rightshift. You can also set this in the settings menu (Mode key)

It is showing fractions instead of Decimals when i do equations like (4 divided by 9) it gives 4/9 instead of the decimal.


Calculation results will be displayed using
fractions, r, and ?. When you press CHANGE, the display will cycle
through the following display styles:
• Mixed fractions (with or without ?) ? improper fractions (with
or without ?) ? decimal numbers
• Proper fractions (with or without ?) ? decimal numbers.

How do i convert fraction answers to decimals?


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.

How do I set the calculator to give me the decimal form of the answer?


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/Output mode to LineIO. To do do press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) screen and select [2:LineIO]

When doing division only displays answer in fractions, for example 8/9 gives me 8/9 rather than the decimal equivalent


  1. Press [S<=>D] key to toggle between fractions/radicals and decimal numbers.
  2. Alternatively, press [SHIFT][=] instead of [=] to force display to be in decimal format.
  3. More permanently, press [SHIFT] [MODE] to access (SETUP) screen, then select [ 2:LineIO]

How to get answer in decimals instead of fraction


if you do not want to change your settings There are two ways to foecr calculator to display a result in a decimal format.
  1. Before pressing the [=] sign to get the result press [SHIFT] key. thus [SHIFT][=] displays a result in decimal format.
  2. If a result is already displayed and it is not in decimal format (fraction or radical) press the [S<=>D] key to convert it to decimal.
  3. The [S<=>D] key toggles between formats (fraction/radical to decimal and from decimal to fraction or radical depending on the format used in calculation.)
  4. That does not mean that every decimal number can be converted to fractions/radical.
If you want to have all results in decimal format you can configue your calculator to always do so. All it takes is to set LineIO as the default Input/output format.
Press [SHIFT][MODE] to access (Setup) and select [2:LineIO].

Just in case you want to revert to the other IO mode (MthIO)
Press [Shift][MODE][1:MthIO]

How do i display a fraction?


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.

When I try to compute a problem such as 6.11 + 6.11 instead of getting 12.22 i get a fraction


Hello,

If you call a simple addition a problem it is no wonder that everything seems so difficult.
When you calculate the sum 6.11 +6.11 , the calculator gives you a fraction reduced to it simplest terms, 611/50. The result is correct, but it happens that you want it expressed as a decimal rather than a fraction. To fix that all you have to do is to press the button [S<->D] above the red [DEL] key. It allows you to toggle the display format between fraction and decimal.
611/50 [S<->D] changes display to 12.22 and if you press the key again you go back to fraction
12.22 [S<->D] 611/50

Similarly, if you enter square root of 2 and it displays as a radical, you convert it to a decimal by pressing the key [S<->D].

The fraction and radical formats allow you to do exact claculations. But if you do not want to hear about that you can just press [SHIFT][MODE][2:LineIO] : Your calculator will do things the old way, but you will lose some important functionalities.
My suggestion is to set the default mode [MathIO] by pressing [SHIFT][MODE][MathIO] and to press the [S<->D] key to convert to decimal.

Hope it helps.
