How to increase the decimal places in the answer


Press 2ndF TAB then a digit representing the number of digits after the decimal point. See "Adjusting the Displayed Decimal Places" beginning on page 7 of this manual: http://www.fixya.com/support/p193841-sharp_el_733a_calculator/manual-5340.

That's the page numbered "7" in the manual, not the seventh page of the PDF file.

I want to set the decimal place without using the decimal key--example: hit the 1234 keys and the shows $12.34


You can select the A (K . A) and then the # of decimal places (F 6 3 2 1 0) you want. So if you want to enter 1234 & it calculates 12.34, this will work.

My calculator will show fractions instead of decimals when doing division. How do I change that? There is a N1 displayed in the lower left corner also...I think that may be the problem


Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteViewelw516.gif on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator

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.

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.
If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to disable the WriteView display mode. 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.
Disabling WriteView

Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.

There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE

Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.

To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.

NOTE: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode.
