SOURCE: what keys due i use to calculate a fraction

To do fractions, just use the normal divide button.

To see the exact answer, hit MODE and scroll down to Exact/Approx and change to EXACT. In this mode, it will give the fraction always unless you press the special (green button with diamond) before pressing ENTER and it will give the approximate decimal value.

on the key pad row above **7**-**8**-**9**-**(**-**)** all the way to the left there is a key that says **change** with two arrows moving in a cicle press after each answer will change from **even fraction** to **uneven fraction** then **decimal**

If you have just calculated some value and it is displayed in decimal format, you may be able to recover the exact fraction by pressing the key (change) or the fraction key [a b/c] itself.

The EL-501 doesn't display fractions. Some of Sharp's other calculators do, but not this one.

The EL-501X doesn't really work with fractions. You can always enter a fraction as a quotient. For example, you can enter 1/2 as 1 / 2, but you'll get 0.5.

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.

After you perform the calculations and press the = key, you can hit the ab/c key to toggle between decimal and fraction. Try .75= then you can toggle between 1/4 and .75

I checked the manual for the EL-501W calculator and I found out that it does not do fraction calculations. However yours may be able to. Look for a key labeled [a b/c] and a [2ndF] key [d/c].

If you have them then you can calculate with fractions.

The way to use the [a b/c] key is as follows

15 [a b/c] 7 [a b/c] 19 [a b/c] should allow you to enter 15 and 7/19.

A mixed fraction can be converted into an improper fraction by pressing [2ndF][d/c]
