Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
You can write a fraction by dividing an integer number by another but it will not be displayed as you enter it. It becomes a decimal number.
However, if you want to keep it in fraction form (but reduced to its simplest form) you use the command [|=>Frac] . The arrow is a short, fat one.
To access the command
Press [MATH][1:ToFrac] [ENTER]
Ex: you enter 27/48 [MATH][1:ToFrac][ENTER]
Calculator displays 9/16
So you can keep numbers (in reduced form) by inserting [MATH][1:ToFRac] before pressing the [ENTER] key.
Hope it helps.
