Question about Casio Office Equipment & Supplies
If I try to add 10% to 100, the answer i get 111.1111111111 - My input 100+10%, i am expecting 110, calculator gives me 111.1111111111
The issue is the fact that you are adding the %. You need to Multiply it by 1.1 instead of trying to add 10%. This is a wonky equation anyway, because your not specifying what you want to add 10% of. This is why you are getting a weird answer.

It would appear most Casio’s have a similar problem I believe this could be a fault in their programming and am awaiting reply from Casio and some of its distribution outlets.

I am only looking for a plausible cause of the error, because I do not believe your calculator can make such a mistake. I think you accidentally activated the Exponential display format and did not pay attention to the small, raised -03 that came at the end of the number displayed. It is a common mistake for those not very familiar with Scientific or exponential notation.
Let us try to reset your calculator to the normal (floating point) format.
Press the [MODE] key a number of times until you reach a screen that has FIX, SCI, NORM and under each one a number (FIX 1, SCI 2), Norm 3). To have the number of decimal place you gave in your result (4 decimal digits), you press 1 to select Fix then 4.
Be aware that scientific calculators usually stop displaying results in floating point format ( 0.0000045 ) if the number is smaller then 0.001. So basically, 0.00099 will be displayed as 9.90-04, -04 being raised above the level, and in smaller size.
Hope it helps.
