Changing the HP10BII Display
To change decimals from 2 to 4, press "gold shift" DISP 4: 5,555.5555 is displayed.
To change from 4 places to 2, press "gold shift" DISP 2: 5,555.56 is displayed.
We usually set the display to 2 places, which is especially convenient when working with dollars and percentages. However, we often use 4 places when dealing with interest rates and rates of return that are entered as decimals.
If periods and commas are reversed, press "gold shift" ./, (Many European countries use a ./, convention that is just the opposite of ours.)
Note that PEND means something is pending. For example, press 4 / The calculator is waiting for the denominator, so PEND appears in the display.
Enter 6 and = to get 0.67.
Press "gold shift" DISP 4 to see 0.6667.
Press "gold shift" DISP 2 to shift back to 2 decimal places.
To control the brightness of the display, hold down ON and press + or -.
