# I have a casio fx-83es calculator.If I type in for example 87.67 34.56 , the answer will display as a fraction. I am aware how to get it in decimal form after hitting certain buttons but, As I am constantly dealing with such numbers how do I turn off/change this feature so it will display the decimal number as my answer initially. Kind regards, JS

Doubt you're still having this problem as its been months....figured id post for people who stumble across this from google.

Click on the shift button in the top left, then select the mode buttom (second from top right), then press the number 2. This should switch the calculator onto linear and will give you answers with decimal points.

### Problems with fractions on the Casio fx-115es

Hello,
To convert fractions to decimals or decimals to fractions, you use the [S<->D] key. Each time you press the key the result is displayed in the other format.
Alternatively, If you multiply or divide two integer numbers put a decimal mark at the end of one of the numbers (any one). The result will be displayed in decimal format.

Hope it helps.

### Changing decimals to fractions

You can always convert a fraction to a decimal. The reverse may not always be possible. Look at the example on the screen capture.

You may be lucky and recover a fraction you have just converted into decimal format, but you cannot just write 0.333333333333 and expect the calculator to convert it to 1/3: The true fraction 1/3 has an infinite number of 3's after the decimal mark.

### When I divide answers are always given in Fractions. Can I change it to come out in decimals?

To change from Fraction display to Decimal display on the Casio fx-300ES (and probably other calculators)

1) Press the "SHIFT" button
2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button
3) Press the "2" button
This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)

Doing all of the above but pressing the "1" button instead of the "2" puts it back into MATHIO mode (Fraction)

Hope this Helps

(SHIFT)(MODE/SETUP)(2) to change to decimal
