Re: imputing mixed number

Prime does not have the features that V15 has. Fred Lusk recently posted a worksheet that may help. Feet Inchesand Fractions will do until PTC improves upon Prime's capabilities.

I hope this helps.

Re: imputing mixed number

I think I got it, You mean writing 2 2/5 instead of 12/5 or 2.4 ?

Thats a notation which should be avoided in math anyway. It may be a good thing for gettting a feeling for numbers and fractions when learning basic math but it definitely should be avoided later. Its ambiguous. It means 2+2/5 but looks like 2*2/5. No good habit to use this notation.

Its one of the many features misssing in Prime compared to real Mathcad, but I guess its one of the not so much missed ones.
