Meaning what, exactly?

If you want a decimal representation of an exact number, press the SD key to switch from exact to approximate (decimal). If you want to expand a decimal number in powers of 10, separate all the digits, multiply every digit by a power of 10 with exponent equal to its position as counted from the decimal mark -1. To the left of the decimal mark, the exponent is positive. To the right of the decimal mark, the exponent is negative. Sum everything

Example

345.678 =3*10^(3-1)+4*10^(2-1)+5*10^(1-1)+6*10(-1)+7*10^(-2)+8*10^(-3)

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.

Use the middle slide switch of the three between the display and the keyboard.

The far left position sets it to two decimals, the far right position displays all effective digits up to twelve, the inner positions allow you to specify the number of decimal digits.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

I understand your frustration, but believe me there is nothing wrong with your calculator. You just have to invest a minimum amount of time to familiarize yourself with its powerful capabilities.

No matter. Your calculator has to input output modes. MathIO and LineIO. MthIO is new and it allows you to enter expressions as if you were doing it by hand (like in textbooks). LineIO is the old way.

In MthIO your displayed results are fractions or radicals (roots) or a mixture of the two. BUT if the screen cannot fit the fraction or radical form, the calculator will use decimal to display the result.

In LineIO you only have decimals results.

To get fraction or radical results configure the calculator to use MthIO. In this mode, if you want a result converted to decimal, just press the SD key. It will toggle between the two.

To set MthIO, press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [1:MthIO]

To set LineIO, press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [2:LineIO]

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.
