### Fraction to degrees

There must be an error in the question. Could it be fraction to decimal?
The MATH menu has two options 1:>Frac, 2:>Dec.
The first entered on the command line after a fraction keeps the result in (reduced) fraction form. On a displayed result, it converts a decimal into a fraction.
The second 2:>DEC converts a fraction into a decimal number.

The latest OS (2.53MP and following) has a better handling for fractions.

### 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.

### Fractions on my texas tI-83

Hello,
You get access the command by pressing [MATH][1: |->Frac].
If you want enter a fraction and keep it as a fraction (albeit a reduced one)
key in the number then the sequence [MATH][1: |->Frac]., then [ENTER].

Practice : 27/48 [MATH][1: |->Frac] [=] gives the reduced form 9/16.
While this fraction is still in [ANS] memory, you can press [MATH][2: |->Dec] [=] to get the decimal value 0.5625
Hope it helps.

### On other models of texas instrument calculators they have a button to do a fraction does the ti-84 plus have that?

Hello,
Yes it can do fractions although it does not have a specific key.
If you want to enter a fraction and keep it in fraction form, though reduced to its simplest expression use [MATH][1:->Frac] [ENTER]
Exemple:
27/48 [MATH][1:->Frac][ENTER] displays the reduced form 9/16.
To convert a decimal number into a fraction (with the inherent loss of precision) press [MAT][1:->Frac][ENTER]
Use [MAT][2:->Dec] to convert to decimal, but this is done by default.
Hope it helps.

### How do you do: 3 1/2 + 4 1/8 on the TI-83 calculator I know how to solve it by hand but if I wanted to verify my answer I don't know how to do it on this calculator.

Hello,
Unlike other, less sophisticated calculators, the TI83Plus /TI84Plus /TI84Plus Silver Edition do not have a simple key or a command for improper fractions. However there is a command -->Frac accessible through [MATH] key [1:-->Frac] that expresses a result in a proper fraction format.

Here is how you would enter you calculation
3+ 1/2 +4+1/8 [MATH][1:-->Frac][ENTER] result is 61/8
You can also ease a bit on the typing by mentally adding 3 and 4
7+ 1/2 +1/8 [MATH][1:--Frac][ENTER]

You should know about the other command that converts a fraction in decimal format. [MATH][2:-->Dec][ENTER]
If you enter this command just after the one handled above, your screen shows [Ans][-->Dec] on one line and the result 7.625 on the next. If you do not enter a number the calculator uses the last CALCULATED result, which is stored in the system variable [Ans]

Hope it helps
