    Don't use your calculator, but rather solve by hand.

    there should be a "change" button on your calculator, because mine is a "cheap" scientific calculator and it has it.

    Change what? There's a mode button which has all kinds of settings in it. I can change the floats or degrees to radians or standard notation to scientific etc. and there's a button that changes decimals to fractions. But when I try that it just reprints the decimal.

    Put the calculator in a drawer.

    Do these by hand.
