calculator question
hey guys quick question. I'm not used to using TI30xiis(the scientific calculator that can be used for P exam). When I input (2/3)+1 and get 1.6666666, and do decimal to fraction button, instead of getting (5/3) i get 1u2/3, I was wondering if there is an option to fix that and will most of numbers show up as improper fractions on this calculator? thanks

This is by no means "fancy" but when the answers are in fractions and I don't feel like doing the algebra to get a fraction answer, I would always just plug in the answers and hope that those fractions, as a decimal, matched my decimal =P
Otherwise, and I'm sure you probably noticed, your calculator is just giving you the answer in proper form (e.g. 1 and 2/3). To get improper, just turn it into improper! Hope this helps
