I am trying to replace the batteries on my business calculator and I've bought the same batteries that are in the calculator now and they do not fit. I figured it was a fluke so I tried a different brand of batteries and they still are not working. Any suggestions?

To cover all bases i am going to describe battery replacement for two models:
3x LR44 button cells. Insert 2 then push them apart to push the 3rd one in between.
2× CR2032 coin cells. Put them in with both having the + side (i.e. with writing) visible.

They certainly shouldn't fall out.
Things to check:
on the calculator:
- check the contact/springs for condition and corrosion
- check the casing for cracks.
17BII: check you have equivalents: LR44, 157, A76, 675, AG13, SR44, 357
17BII+: CR2032 (all manufacturers sell with this number)
(IF your batteries are very different to this, please let me know what you have).
batteries could be mis-labelled or manufactured by a rogue manufacturer - buy a reputable make from a reliable source.

A WORD OF CAUTION
If instead you have a 19BII (fold open calculator), these use 1.5V N-cell or MN9100 batteries (half height AAA batteries).
You may have accidentally purchased 12V remote control batteries (which are slightly smaller) - DO NOT USE THEM AS THEY WILL DAMAGE THE CALCULATOR.
