Fraction calculator

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


2/3^2 = 4/90.4444444

Spelled result in words is four ninths.

How do you solve fractions step by step?

  1. Exponentiation: 2/3 ^ 2 = 22/32 = 4/9

    In other words - two thirds raised to the power of squared = four ninths.

Rules for expressions with fractions:

Fractions - simply use a forward slash between the numerator and denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter 5/100. If you are using mixed numbers, be sure to leave a single space between the whole and fraction part.
The slash separates the numerator (number above a fraction line) and denominator (number below).

Mixed numerals (mixed fractions or mixed numbers) write as integer separated by one space and fraction i.e., 1 2/3 (having the same sign). An example of a negative mixed fraction: -5 1/2.
Because slash is both signs for fraction line and division, we recommended use colon (:) as the operator of division fractions i.e., 1/2 : 3.

Decimals (decimal numbers) enter with a decimal point . and they are automatically converted to fractions - i.e. 1.45.

The colon : and slash / is the symbol of division. Can be used to divide mixed numbers 1 2/3 : 4 3/8 or can be used for write complex fractions i.e. 1/2 : 1/3.
An asterisk * or × is the symbol for multiplication.
Plus + is addition, minus sign - is subtraction and ()[] is mathematical parentheses.
The exponentiation/power symbol is ^ - for example: (7/8-4/5)^2 = (7/8-4/5)2


adding fractions: 2/4 + 3/4
subtracting fractions: 2/3 - 1/2
multiplying fractions: 7/8 * 3/9
dividing Fractions: 1/2 : 3/4
exponentiation of fraction: 3/5^3
fractional exponents: 16 ^ 1/2
adding fractions and mixed numbers: 8/5 + 6 2/7
dividing integer and fraction: 5 ÷ 1/2
complex fractions: 5/8 : 2 2/3
decimal to fraction: 0.625
Fraction to Decimal: 1/4
Fraction to Percent: 1/8 %
comparing fractions: 1/4 2/3
multiplying a fraction by a whole number: 6 * 3/4
square root of a fraction: sqrt(1/16)
reducing or simplifying the fraction (simplification) - dividing the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number - equivalent fraction: 4/22
expression with brackets: 1/3 * (1/2 - 3 3/8)
compound fraction: 3/4 of 5/7
fractions multiple: 2/3 of 3/5
divide to find the quotient: 3/5 ÷ 2/3

The calculator follows well-known rules for 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.
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.
