You can also press shift and then Enter to get answers in Decimals without having to change modes (make sure you don't do the calculations twice i.e. what you're calculating should either be entirely number based or simply be "Ans" and nothing else). But then if you have no use for fractions and 9 or so decimal places is accurate enough then you may as well change the mode so you always get decimal answers.

By default, scientific calculators, like regular ones, display fractions as decimals. So if you enter a simple fraction, such as 1/2, the display reads 0.5. Some – but not all – scientific calculators offer a feature that allows you to display fractions without making the conversion. Using this feature, you can enter a complex fraction and simplify it right on your calculator. Calculators with this feature also allow you to enter a number composed of an integer and a fraction, such as 1 1/4. If your calculator doesn't have this feature, you can use a workaround to manipulate fractions. (Source: sciencing.com)

Press the cursor down key (the key with the arrow that points downward) to move the cursor from the top box in the display to the bottom if you calculator has number boxes. You can now enter the denominator. If you need to change the numerator, you can always return to the top box by pressing the cursor up key. (Source: sciencing.com)
