How do I find the square root of 7 as a decimal with a TI-89 titanium
calculator?

When I punch in the square root of 7, I don't get a decimal, I just
get what I entered...

thanks

Instead of hitting [ENTER], hit [<>] [ENTER] (diamond-enter). This
forces the calc. to use APPROX mode for that calculation. If you find
yourself always wanting this, go into the [MODE] dialog and change the
"Exact/Approx" setting to "APPROX".

Hold down the blue 2ND key then press the ✖ sign. (it's the 4th key up on the right side of the keyboard)
