Not knowing your make and type of calculator it is impossible to say.

With my Casio fx-85ES in MathIO mode, it will attempt to give an exact an answer if possible when the = key is pressed.. So it will display fractions when possible. Whether as a mixed number or an improper fraction is configurable by setup (shift-mode). Pressing Shift-= will force it to display as a decimal.

The shift-= can be used if an answer is displayed, but note that if the calculation involves ANS, then pressing Shift-= will redo the calculation with the current answer.

In LineIO mode, it gives the normal decimal display.

MathIO or LineIO is chosen from the setup (shift-mode) menu.

If you have another calculator, check its manual.
