Yes, you would have to convert the fractions into decimal notation, represented as feet.

Example: 5' 3 1/2" is 5.29167'

By the way, the formula (that you know) is "plus", not "times" ....

a^2 **plus** b^2 = c^2 (the square of the hypotenuse is the **SUM** of the squares of the two other sides)

Thanks for using FixYa!

Isolate the integer part (to the left of the decimal point)

Convert the non integer part (decimal part) into a fraction.

Write the result as (integer part) (fraction part)

3/2=1.5

Integer part is 1, decimal part is 0.5

0.5 as a fraction is 1/2

3/2= 1 1/2

Convert the non integer part (decimal part) into a fraction.

Write the result as (integer part) (fraction part)

3/2=1.5

Integer part is 1, decimal part is 0.5

0.5 as a fraction is 1/2

3/2= 1 1/2

### How to convert percent to fraction

1% = 1/100

So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25

- Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
- Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
- Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer:
*f*= 10*to power d*

Example:

*f*= 10 power 2 = 100

- Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f:
*x***f*/*f*=*y*/*f*

Example:

2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100

- Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction.
Example:

gcd(256,100) = 4

- Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value:
Example:

256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25

1% = 1/100

So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25

The MATH menu has two options 1:>Frac, 2:>Dec.

The first entered on the command line after a fraction keeps the result in (reduced) fraction form. On a displayed result, it converts a decimal into a fraction.

The second 2:>DEC converts a fraction into a decimal number.

The latest OS (2.53MP and following) has a better handling for fractions.

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]{<--].

First put the calculator in degree mode.

To convert from fraction to a decimal number first enter your fraction or, mixed number. I'll convert a mixed number to a fraction first since, I don't have a key for the symbol that shows that a number is a fraction on my keyboard. Example: [3][A b/c][1][A b/c][2][A b/cd/e][ENTER]

3/2 should be entered at the home screen. While at the Home screen enter, [2nd][FD][ENTER]

1.5 should now be displayed at the Home screen.

As you can see it is really just using the [A b/c] key to enter in your fraction and, [FD] key to do the converting. The [A_b/cd/e] key isn't necessary because, mixed numbers will convert to decimal numbers just like fractions do. I just don't have the key to show a fraction symbol that the calculator uses. So to show that symbol, I used the / symbol with the fraction number.

2nd [F<>D]. F<>D is on the PRB key, diagonally down and right of the 2nd key. The conversion may not work for numbers with more than three nonzero digits to the right of the decimal point.

You can convert between Standard Form (with fractions and pi) or
Decimal form by using the "S<->D" button. Use Mode 1 if you
mostly prefer fraction answers and you can use the SD button to convert
to decimal or use Mode 2 if you mostly prefer decimal answers and use
the SD button to see the fraction.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Hello,

To make sure that results are always in decimal format, put a decimal mark (point) at the end of one integer.

ex:**1./2 or 1/2. **or** 1./2.** display as 0.5, so does **1. + 1/2**

To convert from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal press**a b/c**

To convert from proper to improper fractions use**[SHIFT][d/c] **

Hope it helps.

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
