Divide the numerator (the top number) by the denominator (the bottom number).

For example, 2/7. On your calculator, enter 2 hit the "/" key and then enter 7 and hit "=".

Good luck.

SOURCE: When I divide answers are always given in Fractions. Can I change it to come out in decimals?

To change from Fraction display to Decimal display on the Casio fx-300ES (and probably other calculators)

1) Press the "SHIFT" button

2) Press the "MODE/SETUP" button

3) Press the "2" button

This Changes it to LINEIO (Decimal)

Doing all of the above but pressing the "1" button instead of the "2" puts it back into MATHIO mode (Fraction)

Hope this Helps

SOURCE: TI-89 decimal to fraction

Here is what you do:

1) Press the Mode button.

2) Scroll down the list that appears until you find "Exact/Approx".

3) Change the setting for "Exact/Approx" to Exact.

4) Press enter to save the settings change.

You have three possible settings for "Exact/Approx":

1) Auto - The calculator will try to determine the best format.

2) Exact - The calculator will always give the answer in fraction form.

3) Approximate - The calculator will always give the answer in decimal form.

If you enter an improper fraction or a mixed fraction with the the [a b/c] key it will be displayed as a fraction. This result being displayed you can press the [F-D] key to convert the fraction to decimal. If you do nothing else and you press the [F-D] key again, the original fraction will be restored.

However, it seems that you cannot enter an arbitrary decimal number and convert it to a fraction. The [F-D] key seems to work one way : from a fraction to a decimal number. You will only recover a fraction if the original number was a fraction.

You can always convert a fraction to a decimal. The reverse may not
always be possible. Look at the example on the screen capture.

You may be lucky and recover a fraction you have just converted into decimal format, but you cannot just write 0.333333333333 and expect the calculator to convert it to 1/3: The true fraction 1/3 has an infinite number of 3's after the decimal mark.
