Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

In order to evter a fraction you would need to do (4/9)+(5/9) and to get teh answer as a fraction you would go to test and select >frac

For such a sophisticated calculator (computer) a simple thing like entering a fraction seems too difficult to explain. There are a great number of scientific calculators that handle fractions easily.

Anyway, to manipulate fraction without their being calculated numerically, you must use the CAS.

Press MODE then F3 CAS.

In the CAS screen, move cursor to the _numeric option. If it is cheked, uncheck it by pressing F3:Check.

Press OK to exit the CAS configuration screen. Press OK again to exit the MODE screen.

You can know enter fractions using the division key (Z)

If you type 1/5 + 13/7 you will see 72/35

Now if you enter 1/5 then press the ENTER key you will see 1/5. But if you add to that 13/7 you will see 1/5+13/7 and the result will not be calculated. To calculate the resulting fraction you must press EVAL (Green Left Shift ANS) ENTER.

As you can see, this is not the most efficient way to handle fractions.

Use the key marked [a b/c]

- To enter a mixed fraction, enter integral part, press [a b/c], enter the numerator pf fraction part, press [a b/c], then enter the denominator of the fraction and press =.
- To enter a fraction or an improper fraction, enter numerator, press [a b/c], then the denominator and =
- If the displayed result is a mixed number , use [2nd][a b/c] to convert it in a fraction (improper fraction).

You cannot, you must enter 3.75. If you can't figure out what the fraction is, you must first compute the fraction (3/4=.75) and then add it to the whole number (3+.75=3.75)

Given two fractions a over b and c over d, you can subtract the first from the second by entering

( c / d ) - ( a / b ) ENTER

The calculator will give you a decimal result, which you can (probably) convert back to a fraction by using the >Frac command. Press MATH 1 ENTER

( c / d ) - ( a / b ) ENTER

The calculator will give you a decimal result, which you can (probably) convert back to a fraction by using the >Frac command. Press MATH 1 ENTER

Technically a fraction is just the ratio of two integers (division of two integers). To enter a fraction, type in the numerator, press the division key, then enter the denominator.

The problem is preventing the fraction from being evaluated. To do that press [MATH] key, select [1:

ok i figure this is like any other calculator, but without a fraction button. A fraction i somthing / something . so instead of the fraction button use the division button.

This calculator, although very sophisticated, is rather unfit for heavy fraction calculations. There is no dedicated fraction key, but you can use the [MATH] menu to access a ToFraction command: symbolized by a fat arrow and Frac.

I am enclosing a few screen captures to help you figure out how to use your calculator to manipulate fractions. To get the first screen you press the [MATH] key (below the [ALPHA] key. The ToFraction command is the first one in the list. The second item allows you to convert a fraction to a decimal number.

In the following screen I show you how to enter a fraction (division key) and keep it in fraction form, albeit reduced. Fractions are reduced to their simplest terms

In the last screen, I show you how to convert a fraction to a decimal number by making use of the ToDecimal command (last command line on the left, result is one line down and to the right.)

Enter any fraction as a division problem and your TI 83 will evaluate it as a fraction.

For instance, 3/4 = three fourths.

For instance, 3/4 = three fourths.

just type it in, e.g. 1/2 or 3/5.
if you want to have answers display as fractions, press [MATH] ENTER.

A fraction is just division of the numerator by the denominator. So all you have to do is enter the division symbol in place of the fraction bar. If you are trying to enter a mixed fraction: for example 3 3/5 enter: (3+3/5) were the / is the division button or your calculator.
