You've entered the expression: 1/4*3/4 Using the proper rules of the order of operations, the expression is parsed as: 1 divided by 4 times 3, and then all of that divided by 4. Given PEDMAS, the formatting of the original result is correct. If you want, you could enter the expression as: (1/4)*(3/4) Which will format the result the way you want (3/16).
