floating Decimals HP 12c  Marge  10192004 Hi, Floating decimal? f 0, f 1, f 2, etc...  Karl Schneider  10192004 .... There is no "FIX" function explicitly on the keyboard, but pressing the "f" shift key, followed by the number of desired decimal places, will specify the precision. Scientific and Engineering notation are not available on the 12C. As on all Voyagerseries models, there is no setting to display as many decimal digits as necessary ("ALL" on the 20S, 32S/II, 42S, and others).

Re: Floating decimal? f 0, f 1, f 2, etc...  Thibaut.be  10192004 The alternative being f ENTER, or clear prefix, that will show the full mantissa for one or two seconds.
Scientific notation IS available on the 12c <===============  Gene  10192004 Try [f] [.] and you'll have scientific notation.

Indeed ! (NT)  Thibaut.be  10192004
Mea culpa! You are right...  Karl Schneider  10192004 I knew that scientificnotation display mode wasn't listed on the keyboard of my 12C, but didn't bother to verify my conclusion with the manual. Yep, it's there on p. 83. It's certainly proper that sci display mode would be available since EEX with sci display was present. Ya learn something every day...
