### What is the improper fraction of 2/10

I think you want to reduce the fraction to the lowest terms.

Improper fraction 1 3/4 produces an improper fraction of 7/4 (1 times denominator plus numerator)

To reduce a fraction, we need to divide the numerator (number on top) and the denominator (number on the bottom) by the greatest common factor (GCF).

To get the GCF, find the factors of the numerators and denominators and find the greatest number that is in both lists.

The factors of 2 are 1, 2.

The factors of 10 are 1, 2, 5, 10.

The greatest (largest) number is both lists is 2, so we divide the numerator and denominator by 2 and get 1/5.

Good luck,

Paul

### How do I get the TI-85 to convert an improper fraction to a mixed number?

Hi,

To do this on any calculator, enter the numerator and denominator of your mixed fraction, with a divide in between. I get 1.4. Next, take the decimal into a fraction and reduce it to lowest terms. In this case, 0.4 converts to 4/10 which reduces to 2/5. Putting the two pieces together, we get 1 and 2/5.

Good luck.

### What is the lowest terms for 711/22

To convert a fraction to lowest terms, we must divide the numerator (the top number) and the denominator (the bottom number) by a common number until we can't reduce it any more. A method for doing this is to factor the numerator and denominator by their common factors.

So let's factor 711 and 22.

1 x 711
9 x 79
3 x 3 x 79

I don't think I can factor 79. We should check the numbers from 2 up to the square root of 79, or approximately 9.

Factoring 22,

1 x 22
2 x 11

Unfortunately, none of the factors of 711 are common with the factors of 22, so it is already in its lowest terms, and cannot be reduced.

Good luck,

### Changing 80% to a fraction in the lowest term

You have to be careful. 80% is in fact 0.8.
Turn the calculator ON.
Enter the number 0.8
If your calculator is set to Write-View you will see the number displayed as a stacked fraction 4/5. If it is already in this form, press the key marked change with two arrows. The display should show a fraction.

If your calculator is set to LINE, you will see 4r5, where 4 is the numerator and 5 is the denominator.

The key marked change allows you to change displayed result from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal. When a number is converted to a fraction, it will always be a fraction reduced to its simplest terms.

### Convert

Transforming 0.175 to fraction:
= 175/1,000
Reduce to lowest term (divide by 5 both the numerator and the denominator):
= 35/200
Reduce further by dividing both by 5:
= 7/40
This is the lowest terms now that it can't be reduced further.

The "Other" way round, Bottom number into ONE and multiply it by the Top. EG: 3/4 == 1 divided by 4 = 0.25, now we multiply, .25 by the Top number or in this case 3, that equals 0.75. 1/4 =0.25 x 3 = .75. 3/4 is the same as 0.75.
