Full Version: (12C) Fractional Part Function
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
The HP-55 doesn't have FRAC and INT funtions and I'm happen to see some
program example from HP-55 User's Manual that program the fractional
part routine in program.

Try this Fractional Part routine and it work as expected on HP-12C
Since this type of problem still exist on some programmble calculator that doesn't have
didn' t know any good solution yet, until now.

This FRAC functions routine only work on "Positive Integer"

Example: FIX 9

2 [√X] display 1.414213562

[R/S] display 0.414213562
--------------------------------
355 [ENTER] 113 [÷] display 3.141592920

[R/S] display 0.141592920

Program: FRAC function
Quote:01 ENTER
02 ENTER
03 EEX
04 9
05 +
06 LSTx

08 1

11 1
12 X≤Y
13 GTO 16
14 Rv // Roll Down
15 GTO 00

Remark: Program line 03 to 07 by itself canbe use as INT function.

Doesn't the 12C have a FRAC function built in?
Joe Horn

The HP-12C got these functions.
Just demonstrate this routine on 12C
as an example, so that people who got other
HP programmable calculator that doesn't have
this function can adapt to it. Also HP-55 manual
use this algorithm so it must be good to share for
those who interested.

Aha, I understand now. Thanks, Gamo!

I think it is more like ROUND function.
We may go for FLOOR instead, remove the branching code.

For -1E9 < v ≤ 8E9: above defined FRAC(v) as v - FLOOR(v) = v - (ROUND(v - 0.5 + 2E9) - 2E9)

Example:
123.45 R/S ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿→ 0.45
123.45 CHS R/S ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ → 0.55
