This calculator can perform calculations involving proper and improper fractions. There are two sections in this calculator where the required fractions can be entered. Each of these sections has a separate field for entering the numerator and the denominator of the fraction. The input provided in any of these fields can either be positive or negative. There’s a field, between both the sections, with a drop-down menu that lists all the mathematical functions that can be applied between both the fractions. Users can choose to apply either addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (x) or division (/) from this menu. Enter the required input and click on the ‘Calculate’ button to view the result. This calculator is for making calculations involving mixed fractions. Here, there are two fields for entering the fractions. To provide an input, users first need to enter a whole number, then give a space, then enter the numerator, followed by a slash (/) and lastly, enter the denominator. The input provided in either of the fields can be positive or negative. There is a field, with a drop-down menu, in between the fields given for entering the fractions from where the required mathematical function -- addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (x) or division (/) -- can be selected. Enter the required input and click on the ‘Calculate’ button to view the result.

This calculator can be used to simplify mixed fractions. The simplified fractions calculator has three fields. One to enter a whole number, one to enter the numerator and another to enter the denominator of the mixed fraction that is to be provided as the input. The input provided in the field given for entering the whole number can either be positive or negative.
