Calculator Gives Me Fractions

In his latest venture, William L. Strunk Jr. has combined the best of computing, design, and programming to create a calculator that calculates with fractions. What's the point? Strunk tells a harrowing tale of his high school math teacher and the consequences of that teacher's teaching methods.

So I can say I finally found a fraction calculator that helps me through out my day at my high end mill work shop. I do work for clients via GC’s and major player architects that do the design and building of those who are in the Stratosphere, we are talking above high end the top of the food chain. The riches people on the world. So as you can imagine that we have to build perfection. ZERO DEFECT. That starts by knowing the many measurements that are in the 64ths. So when I need to add fractions at that level this is the calculator for the job. I love this thing. It makes my day so much more easy. Download it if you need to add fractions together. I love the layout too. It makes it really easy to input fractions and correct them when missed type. Trust me a must have out of all the many I have downloaded then deleted because it did not do what it said it would do for free. This idea the one.

Finally, why are powers of 11 related to Pascal's Triangle? Because if E is a power of 11 then the next power is 11 E or (10+1) E so we have the previous power's neighbouring digits added to get the digits of the next power of 11, just as we found elements in Pascal's triangle by adding the two in the previous row to get the one in the next row under them. Variation: You can also write a mixed number as an improper fraction to easily convert it to a decimal. For instance, let’s say your mixed number is 1-3/4. Start by multiplying 1 x 4 = 4, as the integer represents a simplified fraction. Then, add 4 + 3 = 7. Your improper fraction would be 7/4. You could then divide 7/4 = 1.75 to get your decimal point.To move a series, we merely multiply the fraction by a power of 10 to move it to the left in the decimal, or divide it by a power of 10 to move it to the right, introducing zeroes as the new decimal places after the decimal point. We can also just add an integer before we divide too. (Source: www.maths.surrey.ac.uk)
