This cribbed from the Calc manual:

   The ‘c f’ (‘calc-float’) [‘pfloat’] command converts the number
   on the top of the stack to floating-point form.  For example,
   ‘23’ is converted to ‘23.0’, ‘3:2’ is converted to ‘1.5’, and
   ‘2.3’ is left the same.

...if you don't mind losing precision. If you do, then (1) was a trick
question ;-)
