### Fractions and decimals?

Fractions and decimals are different ways of notating the same
thing: a number that falls between two whole numbers. In its
simplest form, think about a distance or a value that is exactly
halfway between 3 and 4 of something.
As a mixed number, that would be 3 and 1/2
As a fraction, that would be 7/2
As a decimal, that would be 3.5
Some people refer to mixed fractions or decimal fractions to
underscore the fact that they're all the same.

### What is the difference between whole numbers and positive integers?

Whole numbers are generally speaking numbers that are "whole" or
without fractions and decimals. Generally they are considered to be
the natural numbers (or counting numbers) plus zero. The set of
whole numbers is {0, 1, 2, 3, ...}. Positive integers are numbers
in the set of integers that are greater than zero. The integers
{..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ...}. The positive integers {1, 2, 3, ...}.
So generally the only difference is whether or not zero is
included. Note that there are arguably different sets that can be
called whole numbers (such as without the zero, or even somewhat
rarely all integers positive and negative).

### How many numbers can you make with four digits?

Whole numbers . . .
All of the counting numbers from 1,000 to 9,999 = 9,000 of
them.
Fractions . . .
-- all numerators from 1 to 9 / all denominators from 100 to 999
= 8,100
-- all numerators from 10 to 99 / all denominators from 10 to 99
= 8,100
-- all numerators from 100 to 999 / all denominators from 1 to 9
= 8,100
-- Total fractions = 24,300
Decimals . . .
-- All whole numbers from 1 to 9 plus all 3-place decimals from
0.100 to 0.999 = 8,100
-- All whole numbers from 10 to 99 plus all 2-place decimals
from 0.10 to 0.99 = 8,100
-- All whole numbers from 100 to 999 plus all 1-place decimals
from 0.1 to 0.9 = 8,100
-- Total decimals = 24,300
So far, we have a total of 57,600 numbers. But this is way off,
for two reasons that I can think of just now:
1). I have not even considered mixed numbers ... combinations of
a whole number and a fraction.
Including those would increase the total.
2). Many of the fractions, decimals, and whole numbers
constructed in the above way
would be equal to each other.
So, that figure of 57,600 must be seen as a rough approximation
of a ballpark
order-of-magnitude estimate. The refinement is left as an
exercise for others,
because like a bad investment, I have lost interest.

### How do you do fractions on a TI 84 plus silver edition?

Assuming you want to use fractions in your equation, let's use
an example: 5/7 + 10/7
Basically, you don't want it to divide the numbers first then add,
because they are supposed to be fractions. Therefore you press the
parentheses key and type: "5" "divide" "7" then the close
parentheses sign. And you continue on, using the parentheses
whenever you are symbolizing fractions.
However, if you want to make your answer into a fraction.. it's a
lot easier. Simply input whatever you are solving and then press
enter. After wards, press the "MATH" key and enter when FRAC is
highlighted. It should be #1. And there you have it, using
fractions on TI-84 Plus Silver Edition :)
