Mixed Fractions on the HP Prime
My son is learning how to do arithmetic using mixed fractions. The other night I needed to check his homework. My assumption was that on the HP Prime it would be easy and fast to check a series of mixed fraction addition and subtraction problems. But, I found I could only do this by switching between CAS and HOME, a bit cumbersome. There must be an easier way?
For example: 5 3/4 + 11 7/9 = 17 19/36 My Procedure: [CAS] 5 + 3/4 + 11 + 7/9 <Enter> 631/36 (a b/c) 17.52777777778 [HOME] (Menu) 2Get from CAS 17.52777777778 <Enter> (a b/c) 631/36 (a b/c) 17+19/36 Finally! Thanks, Steve
