Struggled with this and found answer on about page 19 of the instructions on the Internet. Answer also appear on paper instructions under: "Displaying Calculation Results...etc just under "Note" Trick is you must have calculator in "LineIO" mode For setting MODE see "Calculation Modes & cal.

As mentioned in previous note the Calculator will display the results in decimal format when in the "LineIO" mode

Thought I would add the sequence of steps to set the calculator in "LineIO" mode.

Mode 1(Comp) AC
Shift Mode(Setup) 2(LineIO)

Note: the space between each step is to make it easy to read.

I believe according to the manual that the only way to display that IS to push the s/d button each time. I haven't been able to figure out a way to make that the constant display.

### 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 change my calculator from fraction answers to decimal when i'm dividing

If the fraction has just be typed in, press [SHIFT][=] instead of just [=] to get the result displayed as a fraction. However the fraction displayed will be the irreducible form of your fraction (equivalent but reduced to its simplest terms).

If you do not want fractions at all ( input and output)
Press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [2:LineIO]. This is the entry mode of the old generation of calculators.

The other IO mode is MthIO: In this mode fractions are entered as in textbooks, radicals are also entered as in a textbook. If by any chance you like this new IO format but just want the final results displayed as decimal, you can do your calculations in MthIO to get the result. Once displayed the result can be converted into decimal format by pressing the [S<>D] key.

### I cannot find how to change my answer display to a decimal instead of a fraction on a Casio FX-115ES. I am working with financial formulas and need decimals! Anyone???

If the result is already calculated and displayed, press the [S<=>D] key It will convert a fraction or radical to decimal. This is always possible. If the result is decimal it may be converted to a fraction or a radical (Not always possible).

If the expression to be evaluated is still in the command line and you have not pressed the [=] key, you can force the result to be displayed in decimal format by pressing [SHIFT][=] instead of just [=].

More permanently. If you do n o care for fractions and radicals, set the Input/Outpout mode to LineIO. To do do press [SHIFT][MODE] to access the (SETUP) screen and select [2:LineIO]

### How do i change the answer from a fraction to decimals?

Once a result is displayed in fraction format, press the S=D key to convert to a decimal result.
Alternatively, insteaded of pressing the = sign to get the result, press SHIFT then =.
A more permanent way is to configure the calculator to use the LineIO mode. To do that press SHIFT MODE to enter (SETUP) and select 2:LineIO.

if you do not want to change your settings There are two ways to foecr calculator to display a result in a decimal format.
1. Before pressing the [=] sign to get the result press [SHIFT] key. thus [SHIFT][=] displays a result in decimal format.
2. If a result is already displayed and it is not in decimal format (fraction or radical) press the [S<=>D] key to convert it to decimal.
3. The [S<=>D] key toggles between formats (fraction/radical to decimal and from decimal to fraction or radical depending on the format used in calculation.)
4. That does not mean that every decimal number can be converted to fractions/radical.
If you want to have all results in decimal format you can configue your calculator to always do so. All it takes is to set LineIO as the default Input/output format.
Press [SHIFT][MODE] to access (Setup) and select [2:LineIO].

Just in case you want to revert to the other IO mode (MthIO)
Press [Shift][MODE][1:MthIO]

### I just bought this fx-115es and am entering 5x3.3= and getting an answer of 33/2, althought it is right how do i get it to answer 16.5

Hello,
There are several ways you can extract decimal numbers from this fine calculator.

In MathIO Mode

1. Once a fraction or radical is displayed press [S<=>D] button to convert it to decimal. Pressing it again restores the fraction or radical display.
2. Instead of pressing the [=] key to obtain a result, press [SHIFT][=]. The result will be displayed as a decimal number.

In LineIO
If you do not care for exact calculations with radicals and fractions, just change the default mode from MathIO to LineIO. To do so
press [SHIFT]{MODE][2:LineIO]. In this input/output mode all results are decimal.
Please be informed that with this mode you will not be able to access the formula templates that allow you to enter fraction as you see them in textbooks (the natural display format). You lose other neat functionalities also.

As a suggestion, if you like the natural display for input keep it as default, and press [SHIFT][=] to display decimal results or [S<=>D] to convert display to decimal format.

Hope it helps.
