How can I change my calculator showing fractions

I have a Sharp EL-W531 and when I use it for adding or subtraction it shows fractions as opposed to decimal. How can I change this?
To change from fraction to decimal, all it takes is a keypress. (change key)
.Not all decimal results (approximations) will be converted to fractions.
Anyway, if you want to set the calculator to display decimal results only,
Press SETUP
Press 2 : EDITOR
Select 1:LINE.

Thank you very much, can I trouble you as to what it is to revert back to the fractions?

I don't know your calculator but usually there is a button that looks something like this 'S<=>D' and if you press it it switches you between fractions/decimals

That did it and it alternates back to fractions. Thank you!
