### Rounding decimals 3 places

You round a number with several decimal places to a number with fewer decimal places.
1.14 rounded to 1 decimal place 1.1
What you are asking for can be done by putting a zero after 4 and write 1.140, BUT that is not rounding. In fact you can put as many zeros after 4 as you want.

### 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.

### HP12c seems to not have enough room for numbers BEFORE the decimal point. I try to enter the number "85" and all that will show up is the 8.000000000

Initial Setup

One adjustment is important before we get started. By default the 12C displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press "F" and then the number of decimal places you wish to display. I would press "F 5 " to display 5 decimal places. That's it, the calculator is ready to go.
You need to hold the "F" key.---------

1. Press and release the gold PREFIX key (f).
2. Press the number key for the desired number of decimal places (0 through 9).

### How to you chage from 2 decimals to 4 on the ba ii plus

By default the BAII Plus displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press the 2nd key, then the decimal point key, and, when prompted, enter the number of digits you would like to see displayed. You must then press the Enter key to lock in your choice. I would press 2nd, ., 5, Enter to display 5 decimal places. Now press 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

One other adjustment is important. The BAII Plus comes from the factory set to assume monthly compounding. That's fine, I suppose, but its better to set it to assume annual compounding and then make manual adjustments when you enter numbers. Why? Well, the compounding assumption is hidden from view and in my experience people tend to forget to set it to the correct assumption. Of course, most people don't recognize a wrong answer when they get one, so they blithely forge ahead. To fix this problem press 2nd then I/Y and enter 1 when prompted. Now press Enter and then 2nd, CPT to return to a blank screen. Problem solved.

### Need to program to fifth decimal place

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][5][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.
