### How can i change my calculator so the answer will be in decimals instead of exponents or fraction?

There is a misconception hiding here in your statement. A decimal result on a calculator is often no more than an approximation: Try expressing 1/3 as a finite decimal representation. So, the only exact results that you may get are those displayed as fractions and those with radicals.
Now let us address your question. The calculator has a limited display capability. Any decimal result that is too small or too large to fit in the display window will automatically be displayed in scientific notation (the one with exponents).
If you want exact results, you should set the Input/output to MathIO. Even then, if the expression requires more display space than is available, it will be displayed as a decimal number.

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]

### Need help in Special Formatting Number

Here is one solution. You might consider adding more robust error handling.
if the decimal numbers passed to the div function are multiples i will be a non-zero number of that multiple otherwise i will be zero.

Dim i As Integer
i = div(12, 0)
If i = 0 Then
'not multiple
' do this
Else
' is multiple
' do something else
End If

Function div(ByVal numerator As Object, ByVal denominator As Object) As Integer
dim n , d decimal
Dim result As Decimal
Dim remainder As Decimal

If IsNumber(numerator) Is True _
And IsNumber(denominator) Is True Then
If numerator <> 0 Then
n = numerator
d = denominator
Else
GoTo error1
End If
Else
GoTo error1
End If
result = Decimal.divide(n, d)
remainder = Decimal.remainder(n, d)
If remainder = 0 Then
div = result
Else
div = 0
End If

Exit Function
error1:
msgbox("Numbers must be non-zero numerics", , "Multiple check error")
div = 0
End Function

End Function
