I seem to remember that if a number is displayed without a decimal point, its type is an integer and if there is a decimal point displayed, its type is floating point. I found this on page 2.1 of the 50g User's Guide:

Note that real must be entered with a decimal point, even if the number does not have a fractional part. Otherwise the number is taken as an integer number, which is a different calculator objects. Reals behave as you would expect a number to when used in a mathematical operation.
