5/6 is 15/18, 1/9 is 2/18, so 15/18 - 2/18 is 13/18 .

SOURCE: With the TI-84 Silver calc: what I really meant

Upgrade the OS of the calculator to the 2.53 MP (Math Print) version. As you can see on the following screen capture of the MODE setting, you can choose to use the CLASSIC option (the old way) or the MathPrint version.
You should notice that the Answers AUTO DEC or FRAC options allow you to configure the calculator to work in DECimal, FRACtions or AUTO (the calculator chooses whats is appropriate).
The n/d is for improper fractions and Un/d for mixed fractions.

Enjoy your new found freedom.

How do I get the TI-85 to convert an improper fraction to a mixed number?


To do this on any calculator, enter the numerator and denominator of your mixed fraction, with a divide in between. I get 1.4. Next, take the decimal into a fraction and reduce it to lowest terms. In this case, 0.4 converts to 4/10 which reduces to 2/5. Putting the two pieces together, we get 1 and 2/5.

Good luck.

Reduce this tothe lowest terms 711over 22

The fraction 711/22 is an improper fraction (the numerator is greater than the denominator).
While there is nothing incorrect about this, an improper fraction is typically simplified further into a mixed number.
The whole number part of the mixed number is found by dividing the 711 by the 22. In this case we get 32.

The fractional part of the mixed number is found by using the remainder of the division, which in this case is 7 (711 divided by 22 is 32 remainder 7).

The final answer is: 32 7/22

What is a mixed number

That depends on the problem.
A mixed number is a number composed of an integer part and a proper fraction (fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator
A measure gives you 1 foot and 1/ 2 foot. Instead of writing 1.5 feet some people write 1 1/2. If you don't like mixed number you can convert them into improper fractions (fraction where the numerator is greater than the denominator.
1 1/2=1+1/2=(1*2+1)2=3/2
If you use them in a subtraction you should be careful because
7- 5 1/2=7-(5+1/2)=7-5 -1/2=2-1/2=(2*2-1)/2=3/2
You can multiply them, divide them, but any other operation quickly becomes ridiculously complicated. Some people like to use them. I don't much care for them.
In multiplication and division the general rule is to convert every number into its (reduced) improper fraction equivalent and then operate, using the rules for manipulating fractions.

Multiplying mixed fractions

Convert each mixed number (what you call mixed fraction) to an improper fraction, then multiply the two numerators and multiply the two denominators. Reduce the resulting fraction to its simplest form

(2 1/3)*(1 5/7)=?
Convert 2 1/3 to an improper fraction 2 1/3=2+ 1/3 = 6/3+1/3=7/3
Convert 1 5/7 to an improper fraction 1 5/7=1+ 5/7 =7/7 +5/7=12/7
(2 1/3)*(1 5/7)= (7/3)*(12/7)= (7*12)/(3*7)
The 7's in the numerator and denominator cancel one another leaving
(2 1/3)*(1 5/7)=4
Not all products of mixed numbers will give a simple result as this one. More likely they will not.

How to divide mixed numbers

Convert both to improper fractions, divide, then simplify.

3 3/4 is 15/4, 1 1/8 is 9/8. Dividing 15/4 by 9/8 is 120/36. Reducing to lowest terms gives 10/3, which is 3 and 1/3.

Reduce to the lowest mixed fraction 5/6-1/9=

5/6 is 15/18, 1/9 is 2/18, so 15/18 - 2/18 is 13/18 .

Transforming 0.175 to fraction:
= 175/1,000
Reduce to lowest term (divide by 5 both the numerator and the denominator):
= 35/200
Reduce further by dividing both by 5:
= 7/40
This is the lowest terms now that it can't be reduced further.

The "Other" way round, Bottom number into ONE and multiply it by the Top. EG: 3/4 == 1 divided by 4 = 0.25, now we multiply, .25 by the Top number or in this case 3, that equals 0.75. 1/4 =0.25 x 3 = .75. 3/4 is the same as 0.75.
