Decimal point

On a Casio calculator you can enter a decimal point with the key

 · 

 


Example 1

To calculate 

 1  a b/c  2  +  1    ·   6  =  12+1.6
         2.1 

Results of calculations that mix fraction and decimal values are always decimal.

 


Example 2

To calculate sin (½π) = 1

sin  ·   5    EXP =  sin .5π
           1.

 


Example 3

To calculate 101.25

  log  1   ·   2   5  =   1.25
  17.7827941

 


Example 4

To calculate sin-1(0.56) = 0.5943858

  sin  ·   5   6  =  sin-1.56
   0.5943858

 


Example 5

To convert rectangular coordinates (1, 1.739) to polar coordinates (r, θ) enter two values, separated by a comma

Pol(  1  ,  1   ·   7   3   9  ) =  Pol(1,1.739)
 2.006021186

 


Example 6

To convert 2.75 to the improper fraction 

 2   ·   7   5  =  2.75
        2.75 
  a b/c  2.75
       114.

 


Example 7

To convert an angle of 4.25 radians to degrees

 4   ·   2   5    Ans  D  R  G
 1  2  3
 2   4.25r_
 
=  4.25r       
 243.5070629

The standard setting for angles must be on degrees.

 


Example 8

To convert 0.08125 grams to milligrams

 0   ·   0   8   1   2   5  = ENG 0.08125
    81.25-03

 


Example 9

To convert the decimal value 2.258 to the sexagesimal value 2° 15' 28" 8

 2   ·   2   5   8  =  2.258
      2.258
° , ,,  2.258
   2°15°28.8

 


Example 10

To calculate 0.5√2 = 21/0.5 = 22 = 4

 ·   5     2  =  .5x√2
           4.

 


Display format

There are many countries where decimal point and comma are used differently. You can change the display settings for decimal point and comma. The function of the keys stays unchanged, so it is not wise to do this.
