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.

How do I convert decimals to fractions on the TI Math Explorer (No numbers associated with it - i.e. TI - 15)?


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.

F-D key in Polynomial


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.

Conversion of decimals to fractions 0.1666666666666666666666666 = 1/6


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.

How do you change decimals to fractions on a casio


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.

HOW TO INTER FRACTION ON A TI-83


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
