In the default MthIO mode the calculator will always try to show exact or symbolic results. You can convert a single result to decimal by pressing the S--D key. If you want all results to be in decimal, press SHIFT MODE 2 to switch to the LineIO mode.

### Convert decimal fraction to binary

None of these solutions answer his question. When converting a fraction or any number with decimal places to Binary, the TI-89 gives "Error: Domain error." For example, entering .6875 [2ND][MATH][BASE][BIN] does not work. I haven't found a way to do it with built in functions. In order to do these types of conversions, I use the following method.

Convert: 0.6875 to Binary
- left of decimal is a 0, so write down a 0, then a decimal point: (0.)
- multiply .6875 x 2 = 1.375 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1)
- drop the 1 and multiply .375 x 2 = .75 left of decimal is 0. write a 0: (0.10)
- multiply .75 x 2 = 1.5 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.101)

- drop the 1, multiple .5 x 2 = 1. left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1011).
- since there is no more fraction, the final answer is (0.1011). Hope this helps.

### Hi i have a TI-34-II and i need someone to tel me how to change a fraction into a percent and how to chance a fraction into a decimal. please help!!

One can express percentages as fractions. Say you have 60% and you want to change this into a fraction. you can also express this as 60/100 because all percentages are are parts of 100. So to change a fraction into a percent you would just convert the fraction into a decimal by dividing (3/4 = .75). Then to get the percentage you just multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percent. (75x100=75%

Hello,

Generally, MathIO gives results in fractions or radicals. But sometimes it does not. I tried multiplying or dividing fractions or radicals by integer numbers, and once in while I got a decimal result and was unable to cast it into a fraction or a radical. I was not able to find the pattern.
In lineIO you only get decimal results.
What can one tell you that you cannot determine for yourself? If you appreciate the functionalities of the MathIO, it seems like an insignificant price to pay to press ONE button to switch between displays. It needs to be done ONLY once, for the last result one wants to record.
Your calculator, Your rules. But sometimes one cannot eat the cake and have it too.

### Convert 4 2/9 to a decimal

Step 1: Find a number you can multiply by the bottom of the fraction to make it 10, or 100, or 1000, or any 1 followed by 0s. Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by that number. Step 3. Then write down just the top number, putting the decimal place in the correct spot (one space from the right for every zero in the bottom number) Example 1: Express 3/4 as a Decimal Step 1: We can mulitply 4 by 25 to become 100
Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25:
×25 3 = 75

4 100 ×25 Step 3: Write down 75 with the decimal place 2 spaces from the right (because 100 has 2 zeros);

Example 2: Express 3/16 as a Decimal Step 1: We have to mulitply 16 by 625 to become 10,000
Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 625:
×625 3 = 1,875

16 10,000 ×625 Step 3: Write down 1875 with the decimal place 4 spaces from the right (because 10,000 has 4 zeros);

Example 2: Express 1/3 as a Decimal Step 1: There is no way to multiply 3 to become 10 or 100 or any power of 10, but we can calculate an approximate decimal by choosing to multiply by, say, 333
Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 333:
×333 1 = 333

3 999 ×333 Step 3: Now, 999 is nearly 1,000, so let us write down 333 with the decimal place 3 spaces from the right (because 1,000 has 3 zeros):
Answer = 0.333 (accurate to only 3 decimal places !
