Yes, there is a feature or, setting in the mode that will stop you from converting fractions. Go to the mode screen by pressing the [MODE] key. [Down arrow] 9 times and, highlight and select the n/d by pressing the [ENTER] key. Next, [Down arrow] 1 time and, highlight and select Frac by pressing [ENTER] key. Just escape or, quit out of the mode screen and, the calculator should now be set up to convert your fractions. Just remember to go back and, change the last setting you made when you go back to dealing with decimal numbers.

How do you convert an answer in the form of a decimal into a fraction?


The TI-83 can only convert a decimal to a fraction if the denominator has no more than three digits.

Try . 5 MATH FRAC
Does that give you 1/2?

How do you convert decimal complex numbers in TI-84 (OS 2.53) to fractions?


I answered a similar question not long ago and here is what I wrote:

Not quite true for OS 2.56 MP for the TINspire with Ti84 keyboard. To convert a complex decimal value, that you just calculated, into a fraction use the command Math [1:>Frac] and it will convert the value to complex fractions
See below.

I suggest you upgrade the OS to version 2.55 MP.

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.

How do i convert 1.695652174 on TI-84 plus edition. i already try doing math key but it won't convert into fraction and keeps giving me same answer.


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.

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

Fraction button directions


Yeah, there isn't a fraction button on an 84. You have to enter it manually as 4/9 or if simplifying a decimal, use the Ans>Frac under the MATH menu
