HI on the machine there should be a auto reduction enlarge all you need to do is press this place the original on the doc feeder and select the paper cassette in which the paper size you want the copy to be on. Once you have selected press the start button and then the reduction or enlargement is calculated for you.

Hope this helps and answers your question.

Thanks J

How to copy legal to letter on copystar CS 4005i

Make sure your default settings are for AUTO paper selection and 100% magnification to start. That is the most common default settings. Then, under "Zoom" change to AUTO magnification and under PAPER SELECTION specify Letter (either landscape or portrait). Now when you copy a legal original (8.5" x 14") it will be reduced at 78% to fit it on an 11" sheet. An alternative is to use "X-Y" zoom. Now you can stipulate 78% for the "X" dimension and leave the "Y" dimension at 100%. You will want letter size paper to be feeding lengthwise (portrait). Now you can copy legals and the image is reduced top-to-bottom only, leaving it much more readable.

How to simplify ratios using scientific calculator fx-991ms

If you enter the ratios using the fraction entry key ( [a b/c] the results will be displayed as fractions. And when the calculator displays fractions they are always in their reduced form.
In general, when you are manipulating fractions ( Pi/2 is no a fraction even if you write it as one) you can try to simplify them by looking for the greatest common factor (GCF) of the numerator and denominator. When you simplify by the GCF the fraction that is left is in its reduced form.

Simplify and ratio

A ratio is a division of two quantities that may or may not have the same units. Example of a ratio: Speed =distance/time, specific gravity (density) =mass/volume.

Simplifying a fraction is writing it with the smallest numerator and denominator. In that case one says that the fraction is in its reduced form.
7/4 cannot be reduced further, so we say the reduced form of 35/20 is 7/4

My MFC-3240c won't copy. Has been fine up to now

Hello may I suggest doing a simple reset of your machine. If you have not tried this please do so.

Simply unplug your printer power wire from the printer and wait about a minute. Now plug it back in and your problem may be resolved.

Next, if this does not make sure you do not have any print jobs backed up in your computers printer cue.

This can be done by looking in the bottom right corner of your computer monitor. look for a printer icon. If there is on there click on it and cancel all print jobs.

Also, check for paper jam, make sure paper is not causing problem.
finally, here are the steps to enlarge and reduce. just in case there is a step you are missing.

Press options: UP or Down arrow.

Write a ratio equivalent to 7:17

Read the definition of equivalent ratios. Choose the numbers a and b such that a/b=7/17. (Here is a HINT: The operation to perform to obtain a from 7 and b from 17 is the inverse operation that you use to reduce a fraction to its simplest form.)
Once you dtermine how you are going to construct a and b, the calculator can then help you express each one as a single number.
Sorry I cannot be more specific: You have to make a little effort to understand what you are supposed to be doing.

Reducing/enlarging on Canon MP 160

The only option I see that comes close to this is the "fit to page" option described on page 35 in the manual. Apparently, it detects the size of the original and enlarges it to fit on the paper size selected. Otherwise, I see no options for enlarging or reducing while copying.

Printing photos

That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.
