Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I plug in square root of 1-4/9 and get the answer .7453559925 and select Math/1. Fraction but the calculator won't change the answer to fraction.
Posted by Anonymous on
The Frac command only works if the number can be expressed as a fraction with no more than three digits in the denominator. Since the square root of 5/9 is an irrational number, it cannot be expressed as a fraction at all. The calculator is telling you that the value cannot be adequately approximated as a fraction with three or fewer digits in the denominator.
