### Sharp ELW516: Changing the default display to decimal

<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors. <br /><br />At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers. <br />If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to <b>disable</b> <b>the WriteView display mode</b>. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.<br /><b>Disabling WriteView<br /></b><br />Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.<br /><br />There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE<br /><br />Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.<br /><br />To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.<br /><br /><b>NOTE</b>: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode. <br /></span>

### How do i enter an exponent on the

It depends on the base of the power function.
For exponential function use [SHIFT][LN] (e^x) followed by the exponent value. If exponent is negative use the change sign +/- key before exponent.
For a general power, type in the base (number), then press the [Y^x] key followed by the exponent.
For a power of 10, use the [Exp] key. Careful here. For example to enter 1.6x10^(-19), type in 1.6, press the [Exp] key, then the change sign key +/- and the exponent. Press [=]
1 . 6 [Exp] +/- 19 [=]

### Where is the exponent key on the 531x

If you mean the key to raise a number to an exponent, it's the key marked "y^x", two keys above the "7" key. If you mean the key to enter an exponent of ten, it's the key marked "Exp", just above the "7" key.

### Whats the exponential form of 135

Hello,
Frankly, I do not understand what you want.
I will try to guess.

Calculate the exponential of 135
Use the [2ndF][LN] key to access the exponential e^x
[2ndF][e^x] 135 [=] result is 4.263389948 x 10^(58)
or 4.263389948E 58

Represent 135 in scientific notation
135 =1.35 x10^2 or 1.35 E2

Represent 135 in Engineering Notation
135=135E0
If none of the above answers your question, maybe you should state clearly what you want, I am no seer.

Hope it helps.
