How do I find approximations (decimals) when using a ti 36x pro

  1. Jul 13, 2014 #1
    Hey guys. I bought my ti 36x pro recently and I am loving it. The problem I am having. I am doing Newton ' Method to solve roots and when I get an answer it appears in exact fraction form. It is kind of annoying I need to work with 2 calculators to instead of 1.

    What is the command on the ti 36x pro to convert fractions to decimals? Thanks.

    This is a really late response, but i had the same problem and it can be set permanently to display pi as "3.141592...." for example.
    If you go to MODE and go to the very bottom, put it to CLASSIC instead of MATHPRINT. Problem solved!
