Good day,

Try removing the battery and insert it back.

If this doesn't work, hit the back calculator against your palm gently.

### I'm trying to convert fractions to a percentage on

Do the division then multiply by 100. For example, to convert 1/4 to a percent, divide 1 by 4 to get 0.25 then multiply by 100 to get 25%.

### When I try to use my calculator it comes up with TRUE/FALSE I have an exam tomorrow and need to fix it! Please help

I wish you had thought it worthwhile to specify the model of your calculator. We cannot possibly know them all. Anyway, if it is a Casio or Casio Clone, the computational mode is set to VERIFY. Change it to the general computational mode COMP. For a Casio, press [MODE] key then [1:COMP].

### How to use sentry ca 656 calculator for exponential forms in positive and negative ? when i am trying to do 2 to the power of 3 , it is giving me answer as 2000.for this i pushed 2 button than EXP than 3 ....

The EXP key is what's marked EE on most calculators and adds a decimal exponent. 2 EXP 3 means 2*10^3 which is 2000 as you've discovered.

You need to use the x^y key (just above DEL) instead.

I had the same problem... all you have to do is reset the calculator:

Type:
2ndF
ALPHA
It'll give you a choice Mem (0) or Reset (1)... press 1
Then it'll say Reset? (0)... press 0

And your calculator should be as good as new!
