# Fraction calculator with steps

Calculator performs basic and advanced operations with fractions, integers, decimals and mixed numbers. Also shows detailed step-by-step information about fraction calculation procedure. Solve problems with two, three or more fractions and numbers in one expression.

#### Rules for expressions with fractions:

Slash**/**is fraction bar or division sign - i.e.

**5/100**or

**1/2 / 3**.

Mixed Fraction is a whole number and a proper fraction combined. A mixed number (mixed fraction) can be entered as whole number space and improper fraction, for example

**1 2/3**(one and two-thirds) or how to solve fraction

**2 1/2**. Keep exactly one space between the whole number and fraction.

Decimal numbers are written with a decimal point

**.**and are automatically converted to fractions - i.e.

**1.45**.

Colon

**:**is the symbol of division, for example, to divide mixed numbers:

**1 2/3 : 4 3/8**.

An asterisk

*****is the symbol for multiplication.

Plus

**+**is addition, minus sign

**-**is subtraction and

**()[]**is mathematical parentheses.

The power symbol is

**^**- for example:

**(7/8-4/5)^2**= (7/8-4/5)

^{2}

Calculator follows well-known rules for

**order of operations**. Most common mnemonics for remembering this order of operations are:

**PEMDAS**- Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

**BEDMAS**- Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

**BODMAS**- Brackets, Of or Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

**GEMDAS**- Grouping Symbols - brackets (){}, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

Be careful, always do

**multiplication and division**before

**addition and subtraction**. Some operators (+ and -) and (* and /) has the same priority and then must evaluate from left to right.

#### Examples:
