You can do it per problem by using the exact( function, or you can change the mode so that it always displays fractions by changing EXACT/APPROX from Auto to Exact

If you want to convert a single value, press Diamond then ENTER.

If you want them all in decimal, press MODE, scroll down to Exact/Approx, and change the setting to suit.

To convert a single result from fraction to decimal, press Diamond followed by ENTER.

To make the calculator do everything in decimal instead of fraction, press MODE, then F2. Scroll down to "Exact/Approx", then press right-arrow. Change the setting from EXACT to one of the others.

Are you using a ti-89? If so, check your mode settings and change Exact to Approximate.

you can also go press the 'mode' button, and go down until you're at 'Exact/Approx' and choose '3: Approximate'

what you do is click on the 'mode' button and go down to the 'Exact/Approximate' parameter and choose Approximate. hit enter and you're good.

follow the following sequence of steps

mode>exact/approx and then select approx

Go into MODE to the second page. In Exact/Approximate, change it to Approx instead of Auto or Exact. This will give you decimals instead of fractions.
