You haven't made the purpose of the question very clear Miriam so I am only guessing that it is an exercise in rounding or shortening decimal fractions to make them easier to work with which is often convenient when approximations do not matter.

The general rule of rounding is to take the last figure and if it is less than 5 it is erased and if it is 5 or more it is erased but 1 is added to the next or the new last figure and the process is repeated until the fraction is shortened to the required length.

If you take the decimal fraction 0.8745, after the first stage of rounding it would become 0.875 and then after the second stage of rounding it would become 0.88 and then finally rounding to one decimal place the result would be 0.9.

I hope this helps you deal with your fraction. I apologise in advance if I have misunderstood the question.

Got to program mode press keys, [1], [2], [R/A]. This sets the decimal point for 2-decimal places.

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.

You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.

To change to add mode, make sure the 'K . A' switch is in the 'A' position. To get 2 decimal places in the answer, move the selector in the 'F 6 3 2 1 0' switch to the '2' position.

You can see the above described at

this Sharp.com page which shows the users manual. The manual shows examples.
