    Simple TI-84+SE question (format of display)

    Friends:

    On the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, how do I:

    1. Add the comma in numbers (i.e. 1,000.3 not 1000.3)
    2. Get the time to display in the main screen (not just in mode)

    Thanks amigos! -Migs

    Hi,

    to #1: In my opinion this format to write a value isn't possible. The comma is used as a separator in lists, vectors, ...

    to #2: You can use the command getTime. Use the catalogue to find this command. You'll get a list {hours minutes seconds}. You can check the time format with getTmFmt. With this command my calculator ouputs(?) 24.

    Hi earboth:

    Thank you for your comments. I would think the comma should be possible since it is widely used worldwide, and in other calculators you can set a flag to swap the comma for the period (as used in South America).

    I appreciate your help though,
