Question about Texas Instruments TI-34II Explorer Plus Calculator

5/16 to dec. .3125 to fraction=3125/10000 will not simplify

The subject pretty much says it all. The manual says something about choosing your own factor but I guess I don't get it. I keep getting a domain error.
Thanks,
Rick

To get the answer in fraction you need to use fraction only and if you use at least one not fraction number like 0.3125 the answer won't be in fraction too, sorry.
Rate me, thanks.

How to simplify fractions


When you enter a fraction using the fraction key, the displayed fraction is always reduced (simplified). By hand, you look for common factors in the numerator and denominator then simplify by them. Keep looking for common factors and simplifying until there are no more common factors.

How do i simplify ratios using casio scientific calculator fx-991ms


If you enter the ratios using the fraction entry key ( [a b/c] the results will be displayed as fractions. And when the calculator displays fractions they are always in their reduced form.
In general, when you are manipulating fractions ( Pi/2 is no a fraction even if you write it as one) you can try to simplify them by looking for the greatest common factor (GCF) of the numerator and denominator. When you simplify by the GCF the fraction that is left is in its reduced form.

I can't find this button on my calculator / this


A fraction is in fact a ratio of two number: a division of a numerator by a denominator. The key used for the division operation is the one above the multiplication sign and below the caret [^], and in thee rightmost column of keys.

Beware that this calculator converts any ratio of two numbers into a decimal value. To keep a fraction in a fraction form you must use the [|=>Frac] or [ToFrac] command. To convert a decimal result to a fraction, use the [|=>Dec] command.
These commands are accessible through the CATALOG or more easily by pressing [MATH] (under the ALPHA key) and selecting [1:|=>Frac], or [2:|=>Dec]
Ex: to keep 27/48 in fraction form you enter
27 [/] 48 [MATH][1:|=>Frac] [ENTER]. Result is 9/16
You will notice that the resulting fraction is reduced to its simplest form.
To convert the above result from fraction to decimal press [MATH][2:|=>Dec]

A fraction can always be approximated by a decimal value but the converse is not always possible.

Fractions on my texas tI-83


Hello,
You get access the command by pressing [MATH][1: |->Frac].
If you want enter a fraction and keep it as a fraction (albeit a reduced one)
key in the number then the sequence [MATH][1: |->Frac]., then [ENTER].

Practice : 27/48 [MATH][1: |->Frac] [=] gives the reduced form 9/16.
While this fraction is still in [ANS] memory, you can press [MATH][2: |->Dec] [=] to get the decimal value 0.5625
Hope it helps.

Simplifying fractions on the TI-30XA


Two ways:

1) hit the equal sign

2) hit 2nd and [d/c] (you can do this multiple times to see it as the most reduced improper fraction or as a mixed fraction)

How do I on a TI-84 Plus Simplify Fractions


Enter the fraction for example: enter 8/12.
The answer will be .666666
Then click Math (which is located under the Alpha button).
Click the ->Frac button (the first one).
It should come up as Ans->Frac.
Click Enter.
It should now read 2/3 which is 8/12 reduced.
Note: I have a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, and the TI-84 Plus might not have this function, but that is how I do it on my TI-84 Plus Silver Edition

Fraction button directions


Yeah, there isn't a fraction button on an 84. You have to enter it manually as 4/9 or if simplifying a decimal, use the Ans>Frac under the MATH menu
