Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

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.**

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.)

Hope this will help you. http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/software/calculator/P23-DHV-(USA-HWB).pdf

You need to select the number of decimal places you would like, or if you would like the calculator to behave as normal. Press SET UP and select FSE (press 1) . You now have 5 options.

0: FIX means you can choose a fixed number of decimal places for every calculation.

1: SCI means scientific notation and choose the number of significant values you would like to deal with.

2: ENG means engineering and the power goes up in multiples of 3.

3: NORM1 and 4: NORM2 are the usual or normal settings on the calculator. Most school calculations will use NORM1 mode.

The calculator is a finite device so it has to round off most numbers somewhere. However you have some control over where this rounding occurs.

Press the MODE key. Cursor down to the second row and select the number of digits you want after the decimal point (or select "Float" to let the calculator decide, then press ENTER. Press 2nd QUIT to exit the mode screen.

First, bear in mind that the calculator is going to round numbers eventually, as it can only show a finite number of digits.

You have some control over where and how this rounding takes place. Press [mode], down-arrow, down-arrow, then right-arrow to the choice of decimals desired. Press [enter] to select it.

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.

Hi,

To stop the calcultor rounding your answers to the nearest INTEGER, press [2nd][FIX] followed by a number other than 0. For exemple

**[2nd][FIX] 3** will display the numbers with 3 decimal digits.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The [MODE] key can be used to select the modes described below.

Important! The following is a general explanation of Scientific Calculator modes. Note that your calculator may not include all of the modes described here.

1) Calculation Modes

Before performing a calculation, you first need to select the appropriate calculation mode.

COMP: Basic arithmetric calculations

(arithmetic operations, trigonometric functions, etc.)

COMPLEX: Complex number calculations

SD: Single-variable statistical calculations

(sample standard deviation, etc.)

LR or REG: Paired-variable statistical calculations

(linear regression statistical calculations, etc.)

BASE or BASE-n: Binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal number system calculations

MAT: Matrix calculations (determinants, etc.)

VCT: Vector calculations

EQU: nth degree equations, simultaneous equations

2) Display Settings

Use these settings to control how calculation results are displayed.

Note that changing the Fix and Sci settings does not affect internal calculation results.

Norm: Exponential display format and cancels the currently configured Fix and Sci settings.

Fix: Specifies a fixed number of digits to the right of the decimal place.

Sci: Specifies a fixed number of significant digits.

3) Angle Unit Setting

(90°=?/2 radians=100 grads)

Deg: Degrees

Rad: Radians

Gra: Grads

4) Engineering Mode

Use this mode when you want to input and perform calculations using engineering symbols.
