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.

[A_b/cd/e] is the convert key for mix number to a fraction number. [A_b/c-d/e] key on the calculator.
[FD] is the convert key for fraction number to decimal number. [F-D] key on the calculator.
The - sign that I am now using for the arrows that are used for that symbol on the calculator keys did not transfer from my edit screen to your posting. Thank you.

I see that I need to press the [2nd] before I press [A b/c-de]. Such as, [3] [A b/c] [1] [2] [2nd] [A b/c- d/e].

• charles williams Jan 23, 2011

In my example: [3] [A b/c] [1] [A b/c] [2] [2nd] [A b/c- d/e] [ENTER] will display 3/2.

• charles williams Jan 29, 2011

In reference to the above comment. While at the Home screen press, [2nd] [F-D] [ENTER]. 1.5 should now be displayed on the screen. You know, getting use to have your answer to display some what properly at fixya can be a challenge. No challenge to one line solution though.

### How do I convert decimals to fractions on the TI Math Explorer (No numbers associated with it - i.e. TI - 15)?

The way it works is as follow. If a result is displayed as a fraction you can convert it to its decimal representation. If you do nothing after the conversion, you can revert the decimal representation to the fraction.

### F-D key in Polynomial

The F-D key converts a displayed result from fraction to decimal and vice-versa.
If in the polynomial expression a numerical coefficient is a fraction just enter it as a fraction, possibly enclosed in parentheses. If it is a decimal number just enter it as a decimal number. Converting it to a fraction is not going to generate any more precision in the result. You lose precision when you go from fraction to decimal, but you do not make a number more precise by converting it from a decimal representation to a fraction.

### Conversion of decimals to fractions 0.1666666666666666666666666 = 1/6

You can always convert a fraction to a decimal. The reverse may not always be possible. Look at the example on the screen capture.

You may be lucky and recover a fraction you have just converted into decimal format, but you cannot just write 0.333333333333 and expect the calculator to convert it to 1/3: The true fraction 1/3 has an infinite number of 3's after the decimal mark.

### How do you change decimals to fractions on a casio

If you enter an improper fraction or a mixed fraction with the the [a b/c] key it will be displayed as a fraction. This result being displayed you can press the [F-D] key to convert the fraction to decimal. If you do nothing else and you press the [F-D] key again, the original fraction will be restored.

However, it seems that you cannot enter an arbitrary decimal number and convert it to a fraction. The [F-D] key seems to work one way : from a fraction to a decimal number. You will only recover a fraction if the original number was a fraction.

### HOW TO INTER FRACTION ON A TI-83

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
