Fractions ~ ASCII Code ~ Quarters Halves & Eights

Here's more... about fractions...

Fractions ~ ASCII Code ~ Quarters
(One-Quarter, One-Half & Three-Quarters)
Alt + 0188 = ¼
Alt + 0189 = ½
Alt + 0190 = ¾
Fractions ~ ASCII Code ~ Eights
(One-Eighth, One-QuarLabelster, Three-Eighths, One-Half, Five-Eights. Three-Quarters & Seven-Eights)

I did NOT manage to find the ASCII Code so I'm resorting to copying-and-pasting info I need from Links below.

Note that there are no 2/8 because (2/8 = 1/2 or ½)  this is wrong.

Division Symbol (÷)

Here's the code for the Division Symbol (÷)

Typing [Alt+246] will give you [÷]


MS-Word ~ How do you type fractions

Wow! Just learnt something.

I needed to type some fractions and just learnt this.

I tried it out and it actually works. 
However, it only works in MS-Word so I can't do it in this email.


To Create the Fraction Symbol

Method 1: Use an Equation Field to Create the Fraction: 

This method creates a fraction with a horizontal line between the numerator and the denominator. 

  1. Place the insertion point where you want the fraction to appear.
  2. Press CTRL+F9 to insert field braces.
  3. Between the field braces, type the following
    EQ \F(a,b)
    where a and b are the numerator and denominator of the fraction.

    For example, if you want to create the fraction 1/8, the field would look like this
    { EQ \F(1,8)}
  4. With the insertion point in the field, press SHIFT+F9.

While we're at this... here's the code for the Division Symbol (÷)
Typing [Alt+246] will give you [÷]
