# Mixed number calculator

This 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 + 1/6 = 5/12 ≅ 0.4166667

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

- Add: 1/4 + 1/6 = 1 · 3/4 · 3 + 1 · 2/6 · 2 = 3/12 + 2/12 = 3 + 2/12 = 5/12

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, 6) = 12. In practice, 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 = five twelfths.
