I have a ti 85 calculator, and I don't know how to do fractions on it. Anyone know what buttons to push or something?

Ad

Here it is, in 3 easy steps (you will have to modify, because I am using a TI-83+, and I don't have a TI-85 to look at.):

1.) Press the [MATH] key

2.) "Hit" the [ENTER] key

3.) Repeat step two.

You do not simplify fractions on the calculator. If the calculator is able to display fraction results, be sure that the form it gives you is the simplest. If the fraction is a mixed one there is usually a key to switch from mixed to improper, and from improper to mixed the keys are [a b/c] and [d/c]

To do fractions on the TI-83, you must use parentheses.

The parentheses buttons (there are two of them, facing either way) are near the upper right corner of the buttons on the calculator.

To write a fraction, you must enclose it in parentheses, using the divide button (the slash) as the fraction sign (the line between the numerator and the denominator)

For example, this would be one half:

(1/2)

And this would be one third:

(1/3)

As long as the numbers are confined between parentheses, with no other numbers in there besides the fraction, they will act as a single group.

Don't ever be afraid to use plenty of parentheses, either!

For example, if you wanted to add one half to one third, and then multiply it all by three, the following would definitely be acceptable:

((1/2)+(1/3))*3

Use the >Frac command in the MATH MISC menu.

2nd [MATH] F5 MORE F1

2nd [MATH] F5 MORE F1

Use the following buttons to complete your requested fractional input/output: 2nd & {MATH} {MISC} > FRAC. Displays a fraction, displays a result as a rational equivalent. The argument can be a real or complex number, list, matrix, or vector.

Hell; this is a link to a solution posted by supportthe85 back in 2008. I think it will help: http://www.fixya.com/support/t682079-fractions_multiplied_fraction_get

Good luck and happy calculating. Don't forget to let fixya know if the solution from supportthe85 was helpful.

The primary key to enter something that resembles a fraction is the division key, the one above the multiplication key.

However, any division you enter yields a decimal number, unless the result is an integer.

To keep the result of a division as a (reduced) fraction use the [|=>Frac] or [ToFrac] command. It is accessible by the following key sequence

[MATH][1:ToFrac].

Insert it after the fraction, before pressing the [ENTER] key to get the result.

By pressing [MATH][2:ToDec] you convert a fraction in to a decimal number.

You'll find the ->Frac command on the MATH MISC menu.

In the CATALOG there is a >Frac command that can be used with parentheses to multiply fractions.

(1/2)(1/3)>Frac

1/6

(1/2)(1/3)>Frac

1/6
