# Calculator multiplying a fraction by a whole number

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.

### 6 * 3/4 = 9/2 = 4 1/2 = 4.5

Spelled result in words is nine halfs (or four and one half).### How do you solve fractions step by step?

- Multiple: 6 * 3/4 = 6 · 3/1 · 4 = 18/4 = 9 · 2/2 · 2 = 9/2

Multiply both numerators and denominators. Result fraction keep to lowest possible denominator GCD(18, 4) = 2. In the next intermediate step, , cancel by a common factor of 2 gives 9/2.

In words - six multiplied by three quarters = nine halfs.

#### 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.
