# Mixed fractions calculator

The calculator performs basic and advanced operations with mixed numbers, fractions, integers, decimals. Mixed fractions are also called mixed numbers. A mixed fraction is a whole number and a proper fraction combined, i.e. one and three-quarters. The calculator evaluates the expression or solves the equation with step-by-step calculation progress information. Solve problems with two or more mixed numbers fractions in one expression.

## Result:

### 1/4 + 2/3 = 11/12 ≅ 0.9166667

Spelled result in words is eleven twelfths.### Calculation steps

- Add: 1/4 + 2/3 = 1 · 3/4 · 3 + 2 · 4/3 · 4 = 3/12 + 8/12 = 3 + 8/12 = 11/12

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 both denominators - LCM(4, 3) = 12. In practice, it is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 3 = 12. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.

In other words - one quarter plus two thirds = eleven twelfths.
