How Do You Put a Fraction Into a Calculator

When most people take math, they count numerically. If they want to put 10 minutes into an hour, they count out 10 minutes. In doing so, they omit the fraction, and just count whole numbers.

By default, scientific calculators, like regular ones, display fractions as decimals. So if you enter a simple fraction, such as 1/2, the display reads 0.5. Some – but not all – scientific calculators offer a feature that allows you to display fractions without making the conversion. Using this feature, you can enter a complex fraction and simplify it right on your calculator. Calculators with this feature also allow you to enter a number composed of an integer and a fraction, such as 1 1/4. If your calculator doesn't have this feature, you can use a workaround to manipulate fractions. Calculators that display fractions sometimes have a special mode, called Math mode, that you must first select before you can enter fractions. When the calculator is in Math mode, the word "math" appears at the top of the screen. Once you have selected this mode (if necessary), look for a button with two boxes, one black and one white, arranged on top of each other with a horizontal line between them. This is the fraction button. On some models, the button may show x/y or a b/c. Pressing this button enables the fraction feature.

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.I personally learn a lot of new concepts in math and forget the simplest math problems and how they are supposed to be solved, although I do believe kids should be doing work themselves these days I also think this is a great app for students who can’t remember their fractions. 6th graders are now required calculators so why not have it as an app. I’ve seen some people review that the app should not be allowed for little kids and that 6th graders should not have calculators but at the same time, 6th graders are given many extra math pages and learn new concepts and laws of math every day. I do believe that kids shouldn’t resolve to an app when they can’t remember their fractions or what not but considering the fact that 6th grade is a bridge year and the teachers have to teach them new concepts everyday I think this app is amazing.
