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

Hello,
When the TI83PLUS/TI84PLUS converts a decimal number into a fraction it is always in its simplest (reduced form). You can also have a simple fraction without passing by a decimal number representation. Here how to do it.
Exemple: the fraction 27/48 can be simplified by dividing both elements by 3.
You enter 27/48 [MATH][1:->Frac] [ENTER] ; display shows 9/16
Hope it helps

    Texas Instrument has released a major update to the TI84PLUS/SE. This update numbered 2.53MP introduces Math Print that displays fractions as one sees them in textbooks. Installing it will allow the user to manipulate easily fractions (mixed numbers, improper fractions ) calculate logs in arbitrary bases, configure the calculator to convert automatically fractions to decimals, etc. It is WORTH installing.

In some cases, inputting the fraction and getting a decimal answer can work if the answer is simple enough. With i.e. 231/308, you get 0.75, which obviously is the same as 3/4. I cannot remember how to properly simplify fractions, though.

How can I simplify a fraction after adding two fractions?


Factor both the numerator and denominator, and then divide both the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor.

For example, 1/3 + 1/6 = 2/6 + 1/6 = 3/6. We have to simplify 3/6. The factors of 3 are 3 and 1. The factors of 6 and 1, 2, 3, and 6. The greatest common factor is 3. Dividing the numerator and denominator by 3 results in 1/2.

Good luck.

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.

My TI 84 won't convert my imaginary numbers to fractions. I typed in 1/(1+i) and it won't convert the answer to fraction form. It keeps saying Error Data Type


The TI-84 works with real fractions. It will not convert complex numbers to fractions.

You can convert the real and imaginary components to fractions separately. For your example, 1/(1+i) is .5-.5i. Converting .5 and -.5 to fractions, you get 1/2 + (1/2)i.

I don't know how to simplify fractions on this calculator.


You do not simplify fractions on the calculator. If the calculator is able to display fraction results, be sure that the form it gives you is the simplest. If the fraction is a mixed one there is usually a key to switch from mixed to improper, and from improper to mixed the keys are [a b/c] and [d/c]

My daughter is starting 6th grade and they have asked her to get a T1-30XA or TI-83/TI-84, she is not advanced in math. Which on would you recommend ?


The Ti83/84PLUS are a lot more advanced than the TI-30XA because thaeu can graphs, statistics, calculus etc. But they lack a key for the % function, and a key for the fraction manipulation, the angle unit conversions (deg, radians, et grads) and they are a lot more expensive than the TI30XA.

Before your daughter finishes high school, you will eventually have to buy her a graphing calculator but right now a TI83/84Plus calculator seems like overkill. Besides some teachers may not let students have graphing calculators during exams.

Honestly I suggest you buy the TI-30XA Solar version. There are some new nifty calculators manufactured by Casio (Casio FX-115ES, FX-991ES, FX-300ES), Sharp (El-506W, 516W ). The beautiful thing about these new kinds of calculators is that you can configure them to use the Textbook display: equations and expressions can be entered as they would appear in textbooks. The Casios are called Natural Display and the Sharps are know as WriteView models.
In fairness to Texas Instruments, they too have calculators that incorporate that display format but I do not know the exact model numbers (maybe TI34XII multiview).

Hey , how can i do percentage and fractions on the ti 84 plus silver edition ? Thxxx :D


There is no key nor command to calculate percentages. But that is easy to correct.

Percentages
To go from a decimal result to a percentage, move the decimal mark 2 places to the right. If you have no decimal mark as with integers, put a decimal mark at the end of the number pad it with zeros, then move the decimal mark 2 places to the right.
Ex: 0.73 in % gives 73.0%
Ex: 2.33 in % gives 233.00 %
Ex: 5 in % 5=5.00 becomes 500%

Fractions
The calculators has a command to convert a decimal number to a fraction. The command is called >Frac or To frac. You find it under the MATH key.

Enter a number (decimal or fraction)
Press [MATH][1:>Frac]
Command echoes on main screen after the number you entered.
Press [ENTER] the result is displayed as a fraction.
  1. If the number entered or stored in answer memory is a decimal number it will be converted to a fraction.
  2. If the number you entered is a fraction, the result will be displayed as a fraction but REDUCED to its simplest terms.
  3. For example 6/9 becomes 2/3
OS version 2.53MP

The TI 84PLUS and TI84PLUS Silver edition OS has seen a major upgrade to version 2.53 M(ath)P(rint). If you play a lot with fractions this new OS will allow you to do a lot more than what is described above.

Here is the link to download the new OS version. It cannot be transferred to a TI83PLUS or TI83PLUS SE.

How can I type in a radical expression and simplify it in radical form?


Sorry to disappoint you. You can enter a radical by making use of the square root or the universal power [^] with fractionary exponent, but once you press the [ENTER] key, your expression is calculated and displayed as a decimal number.
By updating the OS to version 2.53MP, you will be able to manipulate fractions more easily than your current OS version, but no facility is provided for radicals.
