How do I convert .1111111111 (or any other decimal) to a fraction?

Ad

Hello,

In addition to 1/2 =0.5, 1/3=0.33333333 , 1/4=0.25, 1/5=0.20 , 1/6=0.66666666666, 1/8= 0.125, 1/10 =0.1, there are two decimal numbers that are worth remembering because they are so easy to remember. These are

1/9 =0.111111111111111111111 ...

1/11 =0.099999999999999999999 .....

Your fraction is therefore equal to 1/9

I skimmed the whole manual but could not find a way to convert a decimal number to a fraction on the calculator. There are however two functions, one to extract the integer part [g][INTG], and the other [g][FRAC] to extract the fractiona part of a number.

Sorry. Hope it helps.

The way it works is as follow. If a result is displayed as a fraction you can convert it to its decimal representation. **If you do nothing after the conversion**, you can revert the decimal representation to the fraction.

The F-D key converts a **displayed result** from fraction to decimal and vice-versa.

If in the polynomial expression a numerical coefficient is a fraction just enter it as a fraction, possibly enclosed in parentheses. If it is a decimal number just enter it as a decimal number. Converting it to a fraction is not going to generate any more precision in the result. You lose precision when you go from fraction to decimal, but you do not make a number more precise by converting it from a decimal representation to a fraction.

The following examples will demonstrate how to
convert decimals into fractions using the TI-30Xa and TI-30Xa Solar.
Please be aware that TI-30Xa Solar School Edition calculators do not
have this functionality.

**Example**: Convert .25 to 1/4

- Input .25, press [2nd][<--] (says F<>D above it).

**** F<>D means fraction to decimal, decimal to fraction. **

**Example**: Convert 1.38 to 1_19/50

- Input 1.38, press [2nd][<--].

**Example**: Convert 9.75 to 9_3/4

- Input 9.75, press [2nd]{<--].

- Input .25, press [2nd][<--] (says F<>D above it).

- Input 1.38, press [2nd][<--].

- Input 9.75, press [2nd]{<--].

To convert a fraction to a decimal or a decimal to fraction you use the [a b/c] key.

While converting a fraction to a decimal number is always possible, converting a decimal to a fraction may, at times, not be possible.

To convert fractions to decimals, and decimals to fractions use the [a b/c] key. If the total number of symbols (num, denom, fraction bar) to display a fraction exceeds 10, the fraction is automatically converted to decimal format.

For converting answers in decimal to fraction or fraction to decimal there is a S<->D key above delete key.If the answers is in fractional form press this key and it will be converted to decimal form.

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.

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.

Hello,

Press [MATH][1:ToFrac] to convert an aswer to fraction.

If you enter 18.52[ToFrac] [ENTER gives 463/25

[MATH][2:ToDEC] converts a fraction to a decimal number.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

Once you enter a fraction the calculator calculates it and displays a decimal result.So basically you cannot do fraction manipulations. However you can convert a decimal result into a fraction. To do the conversion, you enter the decimal number then you Press [MATH] and [1]. (** -->Frac)** The number will be converted.

Similarly you can enter a fraction to a decimal number**(-->Dec)**

[MATH] [2:] [ENTER]. But I see no point in doing that, because any fraction entered is displayed as a decimal number.

Hope it helps
