# Calculator addition of two mixed numbers

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.

### 2 1/2 + 4 2/3 = 43/6 = 7 1/6 ≅ 7.1666667

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

- 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 a 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 the 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. - 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 a 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 the 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. - Add: 5/2 + 14/3 = 5 · 3/2 · 3 + 14 · 2/3 · 2 = 15/6 + 28/6 = 15 + 28/6 = 43/6

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(2, 3) = 6. It is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 2 × 3 = 6. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.

In other words - five halfs plus fourteen thirds is forty-three sixths.

## 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.## Mixed number in word problems:
