    Do you do fractions?

    If you do, and have a smart phone, here's an app that is easy to use and it's free for anyone that might be interested. Where was this stuff when I was going to school? (many moons ago of course).

    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    I remember when I was in school the teachers said we had to learn how to do math the hard way because "You won't always have a calculator to rely on" LOL

    Converted to millimeters. Math is much easier, especially division. All my rules are dual read out. Conversion is visual.

    I have several on my iPhone, all holdovers from when I was hanging pictures for a living. I've got FractionCalc, INCHcalc+, and DecAndFrac. I don't remember which one(s) I used the most.
