Solution 36675: Manually Simplifying Certain Fractions using SIMP Command Throws A Domain Error on TI-34 Multiview Handheld.

Why does manually simplifying certain fractions cause a "Domain Error" on TI-34 Multiview?

The TI-34 Multiview will return a domain error when using the "Simp" command if the fraction that it would return as a result has a denominator larger than 1000 as this is the largest denominator the calculator can display.

If you need the calculator to return a decimal answer simply omit the "Simp" command to receive a decimal result.
