The TI-83 doesn't really work with fractions. You can enter a fraction as a quotient. For example, one-third can be entered as (1/3) by pressing ( 1 / 3 ). However, the calculator works with numbers in decimal format. You can convert a result to a fraction by using the >Frac command, available by pressing MATH 1.

### I'm trying to find the fraction button on my texas instrument ti 83 plus calculator and cannot find it

There is no "fraction" button on the TI-83 plus. You will have to press the divide key (2 buttons below the CLEAR key) and then use the parentheses (immediately to the left of the divide key) to tell the calculator the correct order of operations. For example, "1/3x+9" means ".333333x+9", but "1/(3x)+9" means the "x" goes on the bottom of the fraction.

### How to us a fraction on the ti-83 calculator? I have home work due on this tues. and i dont know how to put a fraction in on this calculator .

Hello,

Ther e is no dedicated key to do that but ther is a command ToFrac noted as ->Frac. To access it use [MATH[1:->Frac].

Two ways of using the command.
1. You want to reduce a fraction to its simplest expression
27/48 [MATH][1:->Frac] [ENTER] gives the reduced fraction 9/16

2 You do not want your results converted to decimal numbers

(27/48) [x] (5/7) [MATH][1:->Frac][ENTER] multiplies the two fractions and gives a fraction as a result. 45/112

3. Your result is in decimal form and you want to cast it into a fraction. The conversion will be exact only for certain numbers. Results kept in fraction forms are more accurate than those represented as decimals.

### How u put fractions on the TI-83 Plus??

In the math menu you should find a func <ToFrac or something close to that. If you are trying to put in fractions, simply remember that they are really just division problems - (1/2) is one half etc. The ToFrac function which IIRC is in the math menu will allow you to convert your answer to the most reduced fraction.

### How do you do this

(-3/4)-(-2/5)

You MUST put parenthesis around fractions in a TI-83. If you have a fraction with multiple parts in the numerator or denominator, you MUST put parenthesis around either the numerator or denominator (depending on which one has multiple parts).

E.G.:
X*Y-L/N
Should be Typed
((X*Y-L)/N)

Make Sense?
