Enter in the equation, or what you need to solve. Press the equals button, and if your answer appears as a decimal, hit the button above the number '8'. It says something like 'a b/c'. Your number should now appear in fraction form. To get it as an improper fraction, simply hit the '2ndF' button and then hit the 'a b/c' button again.

Enjoy :)

### 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.

### How do you square a fraction with a negative number like (3/4)^-2

Place both the base and the exponent in parentheses

(3/4)^(-2) then press enter. Your answer will be in decimal form at first 1.777...

Press MATH
Select the 1: Fraction option and it will convert your decimal value to the fraction answer of 16/9.

Negative exponents flip the fraction. For instance, (3/4)^(-1) = 4/3. So for (3/4)^(-2) you could just square the numerator and denominator separately to get 9/16, and then flip the fraction to account for the negative. That will give you 16/9.
