Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator
Answer is 39 over 23......or 1 and 16/23. Check your settings on the calculator. People are running into this problem with decimals and there is an easy fix.
Let's say you have a repeating decimal such as .16666.....If you type in .166 or .1666 or .16666 and check as fraction it will NOT work. Reason why is you haven't typed enough of the "repeating" numbers for the calculator to understand that it is in fact "repeating." If you have a single number ie. 1-9 you must type in a minimum of 11 of that number. Then it WILL work as fraction.
Let's say you have a 2-digit number such as 13. Then you need to type in at least 6 of that number. Say you want to convert 1.2181818 where 18 keeps "repeating." Well I only typed it in 3 times. It won't work to convert. But type in that repeating number 6 times and it will.
Again calculator need to know that it is in fact repeating. Only typing it in a couple times could still change the outcome so it will basically fail to show the fraction until it knows for sure.
