By itself, nothing. There are an infinite number of fractions with the same numerator, and any fractional number can have an infinite number of representations, each with a different numerator.

For example, consider the numerator "2". The fraction could be 2/3, 2/4, 2/5, 2/6, 2/7, etc.

Now consider the fraction "2/3". It can also be written as 4/6, 6/9, 8/12, 10/15, 12/18, etc.

Can you help me on this question?


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

What is a mixed number or in a fraction in simplest form 0.15%


A mixed number is a number composed of an integer (whole) number and a proper fraction, one that has a numerator less than the denominator. Example 2 1/3 =2+ 1/3. 2 is the integer part, and 1/3 is the proper fraction part.
Certain fractions can be simplified further because the numerator and denominator share a (common) factor. By cancelling the common factor in the numerator with the factor in the denominator,
one gets a fraction with smaller numerator and denominator.
For example the percentage you provide 0.15% can be converted to 15/10000.
Since 15 and 1000 are both multiples of 5, the number 5 is a common factor in both. 15=5*3, and 10000=5*2000
Cancel the two 5 (simplifying by 5) in numerator and denominator leaves 3/2000. Thus
0.15%= 0.15/100=0.0015=3/200
I hope that this makes sense to you.

What is an improper fraction


A proper fraction is one where the numerator is less than the denominator 1/3, 2/3,1/4, 5/9. All these values are less than 1.
Take now the fraction 17/8. This is not a proper fraction because the numerator is NOT less the denominator. The result can be written as a mixed number (2 1/8) or an improper fraction (17/8)

I have a el-531x how do i cauculate fractions with it


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).

How to claculate the remainder of a fraction using CASIO fx-991ES?


Use the fraction conversion features of the calculator.
Near (above) the [S<>D] key that toggles display between fraction/radicals and decimals, there is a marking that reads [a b/c <=>d/c]. Accessed through the [SHIFT] key, this key converts from improper fractions [a b/c] to improper fractions [d/c].
Enter your fraction with the fraction key (the one below the CALC key) and press enter. If the numerator is less then the denominator (proper fraction) the remainder is just the numerator. If the numerator is greater than the denominator the display will show an improper fraction (d/c) or a mixed number [a b/c]. Here a is the integer part and b/c is the fraction part.
So, if you have [a b/c] type display the remainder is b.
If the result is displayed as an improper fraction, use [SHIFT][S<>D] to convert the improper fraction (d/c) to a b/c.
