# Calculator sum of two mixed numbers

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 3/4 + 2 3/8 = 33/8 = 4 1/8 = 4.125

Spelled result in words is four and one eighth (or thirty-three eighths).### Calculation steps

- Conversion a mixed number 1 3/4 to a improper fraction: 1 3/4 = 1 3/4 = 1 · 4 + 3/4 = 4 + 3/4 = 7/4

To find a new numerator:

a) Multiply the whole number 1 by the denominator 4. Whole number 1 equally 1 * 4/4 = 4/4

b) Add the answer from previous step 4 to the numerator 3. New numerator is 4 + 3 = 7

c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 7) over the denominator 4.

One and three quarters is seven quarters - Conversion a mixed number 2 3/8 to a improper fraction: 2 3/8 = 2 3/8 = 2 · 8 + 3/8 = 16 + 3/8 = 19/8

To find a new numerator:

a) Multiply the whole number 2 by the denominator 8. Whole number 2 equally 2 * 8/8 = 16/8

b) Add the answer from previous step 16 to the numerator 3. New numerator is 16 + 3 = 19

c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 19) over the denominator 8.

Two and three eighths is nineteen eighths - Add: 7/4 + 19/8 = 7 · 2/4 · 2 + 19/8 = 14/8 + 19/8 = 14 + 19/8 = 33/8

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, 8) = 8. It is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 8 = 32. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.

In other words - seven quarters plus nineteen eighths is thirty-three eighths.

## 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.## Mixed number in word problems:
