Yes, I bought one like that recently.

It was a Sharp ELW535X which displays maths expressions on multiple lines (by default). Therefore if I calculate 2/3= it gives me a fraction.

To get decimal, I pressed

setup

2:editor

1:line

and it the gave me 0.666666666 as answer.

*However*, every calculator is made differently, so you'll need to post the model of your calculator in order that someone could help you.

If it is the Casio fx-83ES (very popular in schools) and similar which also does this, press the S<>D key when the fraction is in the display and this will convert the fraction to a decimal.
