# Calculator addition of two mixed numbers

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.

### 21/2 + 42/3 = 43/6 = 7 1/6 ≅ 7.1666667

Spelled result in words is seven and one sixth (or forty-three sixths).

### Calculation steps

1. Conversion a mixed number 2 1/2 to a improper fraction: 2 1/2 = 2 1/2 = 2 · 2 + 1/2 = 4 + 1/2 = 5/2

To find new numerator:
a) Multiply the whole number 2 by the denominator 2. Whole number 2 equally 2 * 2/2 = 4/2
b) Add the answer from previous step 4 to the numerator 1. New numerator is 4 + 1 = 5
c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 5) over the denominator 2.

Two and one half is five halfs
2. Conversion a mixed number 4 2/3 to a improper fraction: 4 2/3 = 4 2/3 = 4 · 3 + 2/3 = 12 + 2/3 = 14/3

To find new numerator:
a) Multiply the whole number 4 by the denominator 3. Whole number 4 equally 4 * 3/3 = 12/3
b) Add the answer from previous step 12 to the numerator 2. New numerator is 12 + 2 = 14
c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 14) over the denominator 3.

Four and two thirds is fourteen thirds
3. Add: 5/2 + 14/3 = 5 · 3/2 · 3 + 14 · 2/3 · 2 = 15/6 + 28/6 = 15 + 28/6 = 43/6
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(2, 3) = 6. In practice, it is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 2 × 3 = 6. In the next intermediate step, the fraction result cannot be further simplified by canceling.
In words - five halfs plus fourteen thirds = forty-three sixths.
