To change the display, press 2nd then . and, when prompted, enter the number of digits you would like to see displayed. You must then press the Enter to lock in your choice. I would press 2nd . 5 Enter to display 5 decimal places or whatever number that you wanted. Then hit 2nd then CPT.

### How do I stop calculator from rounding up?

Hi Carol,

There are switches at the top just under the screen called the "Rounding Switch" and the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

With the rounding switch you can select rounding up or down, but you may also want to use the second switch to show more digits after the decimal. Put it in the "F" position to show all decimal places. When it is in the 0, 1, 2 positions, it strips off and round the numbers.

Here is the link to the manual as well, look at the section detailing the "Decimal Point Selector Switch".

(You will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader to look at the manual.)

### I must of hit a button, now my calculator rounds all my numbers how do i fix that?

There should be a switch that has 5/4 on it. This is the rounding switch. Place it in the Up position to round all numbers up, 5/4 to round down when the next digit is less than 5 and round up when 5 or greater, and the down position to always round down.
