# Calculator adding fractions

Fraction add calculator. Write the fractions and put a plus sign (add sign +) between them. The calculator can also handle other operations with fractions and their combinations.This calculator adds two fractions. When fractions have the same denominators calculator simply adds the numerators and place the result over the common denominator. Then simplify the result to the lowest terms or a mixed number.

### 2/4 + 3/4 = 5/4 = 1 1/4 = 1.25

Spelled result in words is five quarters (or one and one quarter).### How do we solve fractions step by step?

- Add: 2/4 + 3/4 = 2 + 3/4 = 5/4

It is suitable to adjust both fractions to a common (equal, identical) denominator for adding, subtracting, and comparing fractions. The common denominator you can calculate as the least common multiple of both denominators - LCM(4, 4) = 4. It is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 4 = 16. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.

In other words - two quarters plus three quarters is five quarters.

#### 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.
