What is the problem? Enter one number (decimal or otherwise) press the divide by key and enter the second number. As long as the second number is not equal to zero you get a meaningful result. Try it. No special handling is necessary.

### 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.

So it completely depends on what you need to calculate.

### How do I change a percentage to a fraction

Use this http://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/math/percent-to-fraction-calculator.php
OR to work it out yourself.....#

### How to convert percent to fraction

1. Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
2. Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
3. Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer: f = 10 to power d
Example:
f = 10 power 2 = 100
4. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f: x * f / f = y / f
Example:
2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100
5. Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction. Example:
gcd(256,100) = 4
6. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value: Example:
256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25
Example One percent is equal to one hundredth:
1% = 1/100
So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.
For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:
56% = 56/100 = 14/25

### 800 sq ft equal how maney linear ft

It depends on the width of the individual boards. In 12" width you will need 800 lineal feet.A formula you can use is Width in ft ...such as (width in inches divided by 12) such as 8in divided by 12 = .66666 ..............then , in this example...800 divided by .66666= 1,200.012 if using any width board, just find the decimal equivalent for the width , then divide the total Sq.Ft by this decimal equivalent to obtain your answer in lineal feet needed. Good Luck

### Steps to dividing 1,000,000,000 into 31536000

This is effectively the same as moving the decimal point. You are dividing by a multiple of 10, called a power of 10 (like 100 or 10000 for example).

When you divide by a number like that, you are moving the decimal to the left, by however many zeroes in the divisor (9 places in this case).

So you have started out with 31536000.0, and when you move the decimal 9 places to the left, you get

0.031536

### 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.

### When I try to divide numbers that would leave a remainder like 1 divided by 6 which should give me an answer like 0.16666666666 instead all it says for an answer is 1/6. it does say in the manual to input...

Hello,
To convert from fractions to decimals, and from decimals to fractions use the [S<-->D] key. If you want your decimal results to have a fixed number of decimal places press [SHIFT][SETUP][6:Fix]. Screen shows Fix 0~9. Enter the number of decimal places exemple 3.
Dans ce cas 1/6 is displayes ase 0.167.
Hope it helps.
