Mixed number calculator
This calculator performs basic and advanced operations with mixed numbers, fractions, integers, decimals. Mixed numbers are also called mixed fractions. A mixed number 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.
1/4 + 1/6 = 5/ ≅ 0.4166667Spelled result in words is five twelfths.
- Add: 1/ + 1/ = 1 · 3/ + 1 · 2/ = 3/ + 2/ = 3 + 2/ = 5/
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, 6) = 12. It is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 6 = 24. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.
In other words - one quarter plus one sixth is five twelfths.
What is a mixed number?A mixed number is an integer and fraction acb whose value equals the sum of that integer and fraction. For example, we write two and four-fifths as 254. Its value is: 254=2+54=510+54=514. The mixed number is the exception - the missing operand between a whole number and a fraction is not multiplication but an addition: 254=2⋅ 54. A negative mixed number - the minus sign also applies to the fractional −254=−(254)=−(2+54)=−514. A mixed number is sometimes called a mixed fraction. Usually, a mixed number contains a natural number and a proper fraction, and its value is an improper fraction, that is, one where the numerator is greater than the denominator.
How do I imagine a mixed number?We can imagine mixed numbers in the example of cakes. We have three cakes, and we have divided each into five parts. We thus obtained 3 * 5 = 15 pieces of cake. One-piece when we eat, there are 14 pieces left, which is 254 of cake. When we eat two pieces, 253 of cake remains.
