You didn't specify the make and model of your calculator, so I can't give you an exact keystroke sequence.

The calculator doesn't care whether a number is a whole number or not. Just do the division.

On most algebraic-logic calculators, to divide 5 into 0.45, press . 4 5 / 5 =
On an RPN or RPL calculator, press . 4 5 ENTER 5 /

On most algebraic-logic calculators, to divide 5 by 0.45, press 5 / . 4 5 =
On an RPN or RPL calculator, press 5 ENTER . 4 5 /

If you still have problems, please reply to this post specifying the make and model of the calculator you're trying to use.

### When you are dividing two whole numbers but you need the answer to be in decimal form, how many numbers after the decimal need to remain especially when there many

It depends on what you need. If you divide 100 by 3 you'll get 33.333333333333333333333333333333 and a lot more 3's.
If you need it to be 2 decimals behind the comma your answer will be 33.33 if you want it to be 3 decimals you'll just end up with 33.333 etc. etc.

### What function should it be on to get a whole number answer for division problems EX: 15 divided by 2

15 divided by 2 isn't a whole number.

If the calculator is showing a fraction and you want to see it as a number, press the S--D key to switch between symbolic and decimal values. To have all results appear in numeric form, press SHIFT MODE 2 to select the LineIO mode.

If you want to set the calculator to show only whole number, press SHIFT MODE 6 0 to select FIX 0 display mode.

### I have the sharp model EL-W535. When I divide not whole numbers for example 9 divided by 5 they come up as fractions instead of decimals and i can change it from fractions to decimals but it's very time...

To change from fraction to decimal, all it takes is a keypress. (change key)
.Not all decimal results (approximations) will be converted to fractions.
Anyway, if you want to set the calculator to display decimal results only,
Press SETUP
Press 2:EDITOR
Select 1:LINE.

### When I divided a problem EX. 3/2 the calculator will not answer in decimal

Hi,
You are not dividing problems, you are dividing number. This said, there is a simple way to ensure that the results of divisions are displayed in decimal form: It consists in putting a decimal mark (decimal point) at the end one integer (whole number)
ex:
3/2. gives 1.5
3./2 gives 1.5
3./2. gives 1.5

You can also configure your calculator to display all numerical results in decimal format. To do that press [MODE][F2]. Use the down arrow to select the ligne Exact/Approx, then use the right arrow to unfold the menu options 1:Auto
2:Exact
3:Approximate
Select 3:Approximate and press [ENTER]

Hope it helps.
