Most modern calculators can handle fractions directly, making it easier to perform operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

To input a fraction, use the fraction key (often represented by ab\frac{a}{b}ba) on the calculator. After entering the fraction, you can perform the desired operation (e.g., addition or multiplication).

\[\frac{3}{5} + \frac{2}{7}\]

Press the fraction button then use the cursor keys to enter \(\dfrac{3}{5}\), then press the \(+\) key, and finally enter \(\dfrac{2}{7}\). Press the = button to reveal the answer.

The calculator will give you the result as a fraction.

To convert a fraction to a decimal, press the **S-D** button (sometimes F-D or similar).

\[\frac{3}{4} = 0.75\]

You can enter a mixed number by pressing the **shift** button (sometimes 2nd function or similar) then the fraction button. You can then convert to a mixed number by pressing the **shift** button (or similar) then **S-D** button (or similar).

Make sure to practise using your calculator before the exam so you can be comfortable with it before the big days.

Ultimate members get access to four additional questions with full video explanations.
