    Hello i Have this Calculator

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX-83G...4632882&sr=8-1

    Casio FX-83GTPLUS Scientific Calculator

    And when doing calculations, i get the answers in Fractions - then i have to press SD and SD again to get the Whole full number. Is there a way to change this so i shows the full number straight away?

    Thank You

    Why would you want to? I'm not sure why you are pressing SD twice either!

    Giving your answer as a fraction is preferable to writing down a decimal and rounding unless you are specifically asked to do so.
