At the moment all my answers are coming out as fractions and fractions are useless to me as I need all my numbers in decimals. How do I get it to give me decimal answers by default? I know I can press the fraction -> decimal button but that gets kinda annoying when you have to press it every time.

Had a quick look through the instructions and tried a few things that looked like they would work but didn't do anything.

Anyone know how to do it?

Change "MathIO" to "LineIO" by pressing the buttons [ SHIFT ] followed by [ MODE ] and then the number [ 2 ] for "LineIO".

there shoulf be a button on your calculator which looks something like S<->D. so when you get an answer and its in fractions press that button and it converts it to decimals and normal numbers. Hope that helps

"Shift --> Mode --> 1 --> 2" sets it to show decimal as the standard answer and fraction when you press s<->D

on casio fx-83gt x, best thing to do is: shift > setup > 1 input / output > 2 MathI / DecimalO for permanent change, than you can use S<>D for moving into the fractions. the LineI makes it funny looking on display hope this helps in 2021 with newer models
