TI-73 (Explorer): Percents and Random Fractions

TI-73 (Explorer):  Percents and Random Fractions



TI-73 Program:  PERCENT





TAX+:  Appropriately add a percent to a number.   Application:  Sales Tax


TAX-:   Appropriately subtract a percent from a number.  Application:  Discount


% CHANGE:  Percent change from the old number to new number.  Additional application:  Percent Markup (OLD = cost, NEW = selling price)


%TOT:  Finds the percentage portion of a total number


% MARGIN:  Given an item's cost and selling price, calculate the item's percent margin.  



Code:

Lbl 1

Prompt N

Input "X% ",X

N*(1+X%)→Y

Disp "ANSWER="

Pause Y

Goto 0


Lbl 2

Prompt N

Input "X% ",X

N*(1-X%)→Y

Disp "ANSWER="

Pause Y

Goto 0


Lbl 3

Input "OLD=",O

Input "NEW=",N

(N-O)*100/O→Y

Disp "% CHANGE="

Pause Y

Goto 0


Lbl 4

Input "PART=",P

Input "WHOLE=",W

100*P/W→Y

Disp "%"

Pause Y

Goto 0


Lbl 5

Input "COST=",C

Input "SELL PRICE=",S

(S-C)/S*100→Y

Disp "% MARGIN="

Pause Y

Goto 0


Lbl E

Disp "BYE"

Pause



Note:   Results that are to be displayed need to be followed or accompanied by a Pause command, unless the results will not show.  This wrinkle is unique to the TI-73.

TI-73  Program:  RANDFRAC




Generate a number of fractions with randomized numerators and denominators.  


T = number of fractions to be generator

L = upper limit that the numerator and denominator can take.  The numbers range from 1 to L


The result is returned in three parts:


numerator

denominator

fraction


For example:


5

7

5/7


Simplification rules are set through the MODE key.  


Code:

(spaces added for clarity)


"EWS 2023-12-02"     // (comment)


Disp "NO. FRACTIONS"

Prompt T

Disp "UPPER LIMIT"

Prompt L


For(I,1,T)

randInt(1,L)→N

randInt(1,L)→D

N ⁄ D→F     // N [ b/c ] D [ STO> ] F

Disp N,D,F

Pause

End


Note:  The fraction symbol pressed by [ b/c ], symbolized by  ⁄, shows on the screen as a thick division slash.
