I have a "dot" showing up after my zero, and no, it's not a decimal point. I can't make it go away. then when i try to multiply it totals the number and adds a + sign after the total mark. how do I get rid of this!!???

Hi - I think you have the "Grand Total" switch set. For normal operation set the switch to the central position as below:

I don't think you can change the display. I looked in the manual. Hopefully, some day, this will be available.

There is no rule requiring a zero to the left of the decimal point, but it's generally considered good style.

You don't put a zero to the right of the decimal point unless it's significant (that is, you know that digit is not 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9).

I don't know which particular calculator model you have, but for an HP-12C, the manual says the following:

**Digit Separators **

As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display. When the calculator is first turned on after coming from the factory - or after Continuous Memory is reset - the decimal point in displayed numbers is a dot, and the separator between each group of three digits is a comma. If you wish, you can set the calculator to display

a comma for the decimal point and a dot for the three-digit separator. To do so, turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the [.] key while you press [ON]. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

45 700 = 45700.00..... Notice the decimal mark inserted after the second 0.

In scientific notation you must have ONE digit before the decimal mark: 4.7500 (it is not finished).

By moving the decimal mark from its original place after the second zero to its new place after the 4, you have divided the number by 10000 (one zero for each position change). To recover the original number you must multiply 4.57 by 10000. This is compacted as *10^4.

Thus 45700=4.57*10^4 or as the calculator displays it 4.57E04

If you are entering a number in scientific notation do not use *10^04, but press the [SHIFT][,] for a TI83Plus, followed by the exponent.

Near the 0 key, the calculator has the markings **dot forward slash comma in BLUE.** Thus to change the decimal mark from dot to comma or from comma to dot, press the LEFT SHIFT Blue key, followed by 0. The radix mark will toggle from one to the other.

Hello,

To convert from decimal to fraction and vice versa pess the [S<->D] key. Alternatively, if one of the whole numbers (integers) has decimal mark (dot) the result will be decimal.

Hope it helps.

The calculator has two digit-separation marks: The dot [.] and the comma [,].

By default the decimal (radix) mark is the dot, and the comma serves as a 3-digit separator. In European countries (especially France) the radix mark is the comma and the 3-digit separator is the dot.

To switch the marks:

To change the ´comma´, make sure the calculator is switched to off, press (.) key and maintain, switch the calculator ON. This operation changes dot to comma and vice-versa.
