Formula for a Mixed Fraction:


The calculator performs basic and advanced operations with mixed numbers, fractions, integers, decimals. Mixed fractions are also called mixed numbers. A mixed fraction is a whole number and a proper fraction combined, i.e. one and three-quarters. The calculator evaluates the expression or solves the equation with step-by-step calculation progress information. Solve problems with two or more mixed numbers fractions in one expression.

Unlike adding and subtracting integers such as 2 and 8, fractions require a common denominator to undergo these operations. One method for finding a common denominator involves multiplying the numerators and denominators of all of the fractions involved by the product of the denominators of each fraction. Multiplying all of the denominators ensures that the new denominator is certain to be a multiple of each individual denominator. The numerators also need to be multiplied by the appropriate factors to preserve the value of the fraction as a whole. This is arguably the simplest way to ensure that the fractions have a common denominator. However, in most cases, the solutions to these equations will not appear in simplified form (the provided calculator computes the simplification automatically). Below is an example using this method.

Improper fractions are those in which the numerator is greater than the denominator and a mixed fraction is a mixture of a whole and a proper fraction. To convert improper fractions to mixed fractions, we need to divide the numerator by the denominator. Then, we write it in the mixed number form by placing the quotient as the whole number, the remainder as the numerator and the divisor as the denominator. Let us go through the following example to understand this better. (Source: www.cuemath.com)

A fraction is the result of a division of two whole numbers. In other words, a fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, five-eighths, three-quarters or seven-ninths. A fraction consists of a numerator and a denominator (the number above the scoreline is called the numerator, the number below the scoreline is the denominator). The numerator represents a number of equal parts and the denominator indicates how many of those parts make up a whole. The denominator can not be zero. If the numerator is smaller than the denominator, the fraction is located between 0 and 1.
