# Calculator Fraction to Percent

This fraction calculator performs basic and advanced fraction operations, expressions with fractions combined with integers, decimals, and mixed numbers. It also shows detailed step-by-step information about the fraction calculation procedure. The calculator helps in finding value from multiple fractions operations. Solve problems with two, three, or more fractions and numbers in one expression.

### 1/8 % = 12.5 %

### How do we solve fractions step by step?

- Multiple: 1/8 * 100 = 1 · 100/8 · 1 = 100/8 = 25 · 4/2 · 4 = 25/2

Multiply both numerators and denominators. Result fraction keep to lowest possible denominator GCD(100, 8) = 4. In the following intermediate step, cancel by a common factor of 4 gives 25/2.

In other words - one eighth multiplied by one hundred is twenty-five halfs.

#### Rules for expressions with fractions:

**Fractions**- use a forward slash to divide the numerator by the denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter

**5/100**. If you use mixed numbers, leave a space between the whole and fraction parts.

**Mixed numerals**(mixed numbers or fractions) keep one space between the integer and

fraction and use a forward slash to input fractions i.e.,

**1 2/3**. An example of a negative mixed fraction:

**-5 1/2**.

Because slash is both sign for fraction line and division, use a colon (:) as the operator of division fractions i.e.,

**1/2 : 1/3**.

Decimals (decimal numbers) enter with a decimal point

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

**1.45**.

### Math Symbols

Symbol | Symbol name | Symbol Meaning | Example |
---|---|---|---|

+ | plus sign | addition | 1/2 + 1/3 |

- | minus sign | subtraction | 1 1/2 - 2/3 |

* | asterisk | multiplication | 2/3 * 3/4 |

× | times sign | multiplication | 2/3 × 5/6 |

: | division sign | division | 1/2 : 3 |

/ | division slash | division | 1/3 / 5 |

: | colon | complex fraction | 1/2 : 1/3 |

^ | caret | exponentiation / power | 1/4^3 |

() | parentheses | calculate expression inside first | -3/5 - (-1/4) |

The calculator follows well-known rules for

**the order of operations**. The 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.

**MDAS**- Multiplication and Division have the same precedence over Addition and Subtraction. The MDAS rule is the order of operations part of the PEMDAS rule.

Be careful; always do

**multiplication and division**before

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