# Hesi Calculator

- 0Feb 20, '10 by abweaverQuick question...

I take the Hesi exam on wed and wanted to know about the calculator in the math section. I know they have one that pops up or something but I don't know what type it is.

What functions can you do with it? Add? Subtract? Can you enter fractions into it?

Add, subtract, multiply, divide decimals. No fraction.capability that I can remember but you can always convert them to decimals.

Good luck! - 0Feb 20, '10 by HersheyKissyits a basic calculator. It mult. divides. subtracts. adds. thats all, just your basics!! no need to worry though, cause thats all you will need to do for the HESI math sections, I took it a few weeks ago, got a 96 in the math section. very easy. make sure to study your metric convertion table though, there are a few questions about converting milliliters to liters and such.

I didn't even see the calculator until I had almost finished the math section!Cool.. Not too many questions then like whole number fraction div and such?

I'm taking it (second time...different school) on Wednesday. I made a 94.73 last February.

Good luck!
