HP Recommended

HP10bII - How do I turn off rounding on this calculator?  Rounding causes me to get the wrong answers for my real estate exams.

Hi,

 

The calculator uses 12 digit precision for all calculations, irrespective of the displayed digits setting.

 

The displayed digits can be set by pressing "orange shift" followed by "=" (DISP) followed by a number 0 to 9. The number will determine the amount of digits displayed after the decimal.

 

For floating display (i.e. all decimal digits characteristic of the number are displayed up to 12 digits), press "orange shift" followed by "=" (DISP) followed by "." (decimal point).

 

You can also temporarily display all the digits of a number by pressing "orange shift" followed by "=" (DISP) followed by holding "=" (DISP).

 


Please see pages 29, 30 & 31 of the manual:
