### 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.

### WHY CAN'T I ADD FRACTIONS ON MY TI-86.

Because the TI84 does supports fractions in a funny way. Tap (3/4+1/2) then tap MATH and tap ENTER twice and you get the answer 5/4.
The TI 89 has a MODE called exact/approximate. In the exact MODE it does fractions; 3/4 + 1/2 = 5/4. In the approximate MODE it does decimals; 3/4 + 1/2 = 1.25

### Multiplication error(?) with repeating decimal place fractions.

Hello,
You may have guessed right. The presence of the parentheses makes the content of the parentheses evaluated first. So there is a loss of precision.
On the Ti92 I do 7*(-1/7)+1 and find 0.
But with Floating mode set at 12 decimal digits I get
1/7.=.142857142857.
Then .142857142857.*(-7) + 1 gives 2E-14.
Try to calculate pi*(-1/pi) +1 or e*(1/e)+1.
