Chem etc. Need to buy this like tonight I guess, and want a good one that will last through the next 5-6 years of school.

The TI-83 plus is all you need. I've had mine for about 5 years and it's still running strong.
That's only if you can find a new one though, don't bother buying a used one. If you can only find the TI-84 plus new, go with that.
Or you could go for the TI-89 ;) eye candy.

TI-83/84 is great, but I suspect a nursing program would require a scientific calculator not a graphing calc

TI 89 if you're gonna do calculus.

no problem. Visualization is the key to understanding stuff like this. If you can picture in your mind what's happening, then you can solve any problem. All of his videos are pretty awesome.

A corporation reported profits of apprx $3,500 million with apprx $112,500 million in revenues. Compare the profit revenue by writing as a fraction in lowest terms.

This is a question in my pre-test study guide for business math. How do I do this? :-(

Both numbers have the same number of zeros, so just ignore them (cut them out). 35/1125 = 7/225

My calculator (TI-83 Plus) can convert fractions to lowest terms automagically. But in this case, all you have to do is notice that the numerator and denominator end in 5 and therefore are both divisible by 5. So just divide the numerator and denominator by 5 to get the answer. You can easily tell this fraction is now in lowest terms, because the numerator is a prime number. But all that is required for a fraction to be in lowest terms is for the numerator and denominator to be relatively prime.

A quick way to reduce big numbers is to divide by the gcd. Look up Euclid's algorithm for that it is incredibly easy to do by hand in a couple seconds.

Finite math? I think any will do. Shit, I'm a few courses away from my Ph.D. and I only have my dad's old calculator from the 80's. Rarely use that either. There's not much need for a calculator in mathematics, more of an engineering thing.

Mathematicians compute using computer software anyway. Stuff like Mathematica, Maple, Matlab, Octave, etc.


Use your computer as long as you can. Then beat up some poindexter on the day of the test and take his calculator. He will have thought about the choice of the calculator so you'll know it'll be good.

You can beat me up, but you will never take my calculator! I AM the calculator! HAHAHAHAHA!
