# 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.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.

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

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

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

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

In words - two quarters plus three quarters = five quarters.

#### Rules for expressions with fractions:

**Fractions**- use the 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 non-zero 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}

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.
