how to do decimal to percent on this calculator....
that really is not a very good picture of the calculator; it lacks any fine details to be able to read its buttons
but yeah, multiplying a decimal by 100 gives you the percent format of it
i don't have a picture but the calculator has a percent to decimal button and all the rest is like a regular calculator
what is the name of the calculator?
ive got a ti83 :) i see the % button, what do you get as a menu when you hit the math key?
i don't have the calculator with me..its at school
oh, then i wont be able to try any of my ideas out :)
are you trying to make a decimal into a percentage? or just trying to see if it has a predefined function that will do that?
i am just seeing its it has a predefined function
what do you have to do on ur calculator to get it
i dont have a predefined function; so if i need to change a decimal to a percent; i just multiply the decimal by 100; for example: .36 * 100 = 36 , therefore the decimal (.36) is the same as (36%)
im not sure if this is a user manual for the ti73, but its got alot of stuff on it. I did a search for percent and it did not show a predefined function tho http://www.framingham.edu/~smabrouk/Ictcm/Exploring_the_TI-73_Explorer.pdf
what do you do for the repeating decimals??
ive been doing this so long that ive actually memorized a few of the repeaters; but you can use the F<-->D on your calculator to swap from decimal to fraction.
.13666666..... = 13.666666.... %, and 0.66666.... is just 2/3 sooo = 13 2/3%
