HP 50g simple question


I have a new HP 50g calculator. I have set the calculator to provide results as standard. This all works great except for when I do a calculation like 1 / 12. The result I want should be 0.0833333333 but instead I get scientific notation like 8.33333333333E-2. I prefer it not be like this. Like I stated above, I do not have my setting set for scientific notation. Any suggestions?????


Hello Trey,

You'll need to run the calculator in fixed mode to get the display you're after. (Mode key-2nd line down. You can toggle through the number format choices with the +/- key. Immediately to the right choose the number of decimal places to show...0 to 11.)

Best regards, Hal
