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

if the calculator is as pictured above, you need the slide switch for the decimal point to be set at 2.

2.4507E-4 is scientific notation for 2.4507 times ten to the minus 4, or .00024507.

Take the 2.4507 and move the decimal point, to the left if the exponent is negative, to the right if it is positive, the specified number of positions.

If the magnitude of the result is too small or too large, the calculator will automatically switch to scientific notation. Imagine a number that has more than 12 digits to the left of the decimal point. How is that going to fit onto the display? Or a number that is 0 followed by the decimal point followed by 12 0s and then some significant digits?

Hello,

The numbers are not crazy: The calculator uses the Exponential Format if the number to be displayed is too small. What it means is as follows:

5.33... x10^(-3) = 0.0053333: Notice that the digit before the decimal point is at the third position after the decimal point.

in 5.333..x10^(-4) = 0.0005333 it is at the fourth position after the point.

Use the FIX display format and set the number of decimal digits to be displayed to be 2 o 3 or more depending on your needs. Instructions are on screen capture below.

Hope it helps.

This is an easy one and happens often. Simply depress the orange "f" key and then select how many decimal points you want on the numeric keys. For example, for two decimal places you would push "f" 2. I usually keep mine on 3, but you can take it from here.

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.
