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.

It is showing fractions instead of Decimals when i do equations like (4 divided by 9) it gives 4/9 instead of the decimal.

Calculation results will be displayed using
fractions, r, and ?. When you press CHANGE, the display will cycle
through the following display styles:
• Mixed fractions (with or without ?) ? improper fractions (with
or without ?) ? decimal numbers
• Proper fractions (with or without ?) ? decimal numbers.

I have the sharp model EL-W535. When I divide not whole numbers for example 9 divided by 5 they come up as fractions instead of decimals and i can change it from fractions to decimals but it's very time...

To change from fraction to decimal, all it takes is a keypress. (change key)
.Not all decimal results (approximations) will be converted to fractions.
Anyway, if you want to set the calculator to display decimal results only,
Press 2:EDITOR
Select 1:LINE.

With the TI-84 Silver calc: what I really meant was - I want to input a set of mixed numbers (or just a regular set of one or more fractions e.g. 3/4 x 5/87) and either add, subtract, divide (or any...

Upgrade the OS of the calculator to the 2.53 MP (Math Print) version. As you can see on the following screen capture of the MODE setting, you can choose to use the CLASSIC option (the old way) or the MathPrint version.
You should notice that the Answers AUTO DEC or FRAC options allow you to configure the calculator to work in DECimal, FRACtions or AUTO (the calculator chooses whats is appropriate).
The n/d is for improper fractions and Un/d for mixed fractions.

Enjoy your new found freedom.

Answers in decimals

The calculator has two Input/Output modes, MthIO and LineIO. In MthIO the results are displayed as fractions or as radicals or a mixture of fractions and radicals. What it means, is that in MthIO the calculator does exact calculations. Radicals in denominators are gotten rid of by rationalization, fractions are reduced to the same denominators before addition or subtraction. Fractions are reduced to simplest form.

In LineIO all results are displayed as decimal numbers.

If a result is exact (fractions and radicals) it can be changed to decimal form by pressing the S To D key, the one above the DEL key.

MthIO is the default IO mode. To set it, press SHIFT MODE and select 1:MthIO. To set LineIO as the IO mode, press SHIFT MODE and select 2:LineIO

Fractions on my texas tI-83

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.
