# Mixed number calculator

This calculator performs basic and advanced operations with mixed numbers, fractions, integers, and 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.

## The result:

### 16/3 = 16/3 = 5 1/3 ≅ 5.3333333

The spelled result in words is five and one third (or sixteen thirds).## 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 ate, there were 14 pieces left, which is $254 $ of cake. When we eat two pieces, $253 $ of the cake remains.#### Examples:

• sum of two mixed numbers: 1 3/4 + 2 3/8• addition of three mixed numbers: 1 3/8 + 6 11/13 + 5 7/8

• addition of two mixed numbers: 2 1/2 + 4 2/3

• subtracting two mixed numbers: 7 1/2 - 5 3/4

• multiplication of mixed numbers: 3 3/4 * 2 2/5

• comparing mixed numbers: 3 1/4 2 1/3

• What is 3/4 as a mixed number: 3/4

• subtracting mixed number and fraction: 1 3/5 - 5/6

• sum mixed number and an improper fraction: 1 3/5 + 11/5
