    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.

    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
