Check the Decimal / Add Selector. It shoul be set to "A" (Add mode), to permit addition and subtraction of numbers without entry of the decimal point.

I need to increase the decimal places displayed on my sharp el 738 calculator. Please help......

From the manual PDF
(page 8 and 9)

decimal places:
set up - 0 - 0 - (tab) displays DIG(0-9) select a number from 0 to 9 decimal places

significant digit:
setup - 0 - 0 - (SCI) displays SIG(0-9) again select a number from 0 to 9 to set...0 sets a 10 digit display

the floating point FLO_A and FLO_B is a nice little chart so i'd advise downloading the PDF if you need to set those :)

How do you change the number of decimal places?

• Press [2nd] [MODE] and scroll to FLOAT.
• Press the right arrow key until the number of decimal places needed is highlighted.
• Press the [ENTER] key.

For 2 decimal places, 2 should be highlighted. All answers will then be rounded to 2 decimal places.

• Press [2nd] [QUIT] to return to the home screen.
