## 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.
