How to express fractions

  thospot 15:24 14 Jul 2006

I wanted to find out how to express a half in fractions on my keyboard and I knew there would be something in the archives about it so I looked and found the answer in Tips 'N' Tricks, a thread by Sapins....It was Alt + 0701 but I still can't work it out. Could someone please tell me how to do this... Thanks....

Make sure NumLok is on.

Hold down the Alt key and type 0701 on the numeric keypad.

I assume you are using MS office anyway 1/2 is alt + 0189.

And in office just type 1 slash 2 and it will turn it to a correct fraction for you.

Put your cursor where you want to put the ½ and press and keep the ALT key down as well as typing 0701. Result = ½.

Hope this makes sense!

½ - alt 0189
½ - alt 0701

Hmmm new one on me, didnt know about the 0701 one.

alt 0700 = ¼
alt 0701 = ½
alt 0702 = ¾
