This answer is correct. 4/12 divided by 2/2= 1/3

The reciprocal of 2/2 is 2/2

Then you multiply straight across and reduce to get 1/3

The reciprocal of 2/2 is 2/2

Then you multiply straight across and reduce to get 1/3

To manipulate mixed numbers (not mixed fractions) one usually converts them to improper fractions then operate on them.

Here it is rather simple

9 4/7- (2 3/14)=(9+8/14) -(2 +3/14)= (9-2) +(8/14 -3/14) =7 5/14

Here it is rather simple

9 4/7- (2 3/14)=(9+8/14) -(2 +3/14)= (9-2) +(8/14 -3/14) =7 5/14

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

Example

(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

12/3=4

**(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.

Example

(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

12/3=4

You must convert them to improper fractions then multiply the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor.

In the expression a / b , a is the dividend, b is the divisor.

In the expression a / b , a is the dividend, b is the divisor.

You can just write an expression in the numerator, press the division key then put an expression in the denominator. If your expressions contain more than one term enclose them in parentheses .

If the OS of your calculator is 2.53 MP or newer, you can enter stacked fractions by pressing ALPHA F1 then select 1:n/d (for a proper or improper fraction, or 2: U n/d for a mixed number.

Use the key marked [a b/c]

- To enter a mixed fraction, enter integral part, press [a b/c], enter the numerator pf fraction part, press [a b/c], then enter the denominator of the fraction and press =.
- To enter a fraction or an improper fraction, enter numerator, press [a b/c], then the denominator and =
- If the displayed result is a mixed number , use [2nd][a b/c] to convert it in a fraction (improper fraction).

Hi eamon at hom,

Doing fraction on the Sharp El 531W really isn't that bad. I had to use pictures because, the symbols will not transfer over to your posting for me to show you. When you select the [ON/C] this clears the calculator of previous calculations and, data so that they won't interfere with your new calculations.

Let take the first example where a mix number is being added to a improper fraction. Because I used the [a^b/c] key this makes the calculator display the answer in a mixed fraction format or, a proper fraction format. If I press the [a^b/c] key again after the answer the format will change to a decimal format. The fractional formats are displayed in a mixed number, improper or, proper fraction formats. A improper fraction is really a proper fraction number with the top number (numerator) is greater than or equal to the bottom number (denominator).

[ON/C] [3] [a^b/c] [1] [ [a^b/c] [2] [+] [4] [a^b/c] [3] [=] mixed number results. Now let's do the same calculation as a improper or, proper fraction format.

[ON/C] [7] [a^b/c] [2] [+] [2] [a^b/c] [3] [=] still a mixed number result. Even though I enter the fractions in a improper and, proper fraction formats the calculator will still display in a mixed number format. This is because the calculator first displays as a mixed number if it can. If it can't then it will display the value as a proper fraction and, never as a improper fraction. To convert from a mixed number to a improper fraction format if the calculator did not convert it to a proper fraction, I have to use [2ndF] [d/c] keys on the command line.

This show a little more complex raised power use of the [a^b/c] key.

This shows the [2ndf] [x^-1] keys being used to calculate fractions.

When I first saw this question being asked it, was answered with just use the / command. Which that isn't really a good answer because, in math we like to use elimination. If you use the / command eventually the numbers are going to be rounded off and, your not going to be able to eliminate anything. If you have any further question on how to preform fractions with this calculator be sure to post your comment and, I'll be glad to help.

When you get a fraction for he answer: shift-S<->D[a b/c<->d/c]

This way, you change it to a mixed fraction or improper fraction
