Mixed fractions calculator



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.

Result:

3/4 + 2/3 = 17/12 = 1 5/121.4166667

Spelled result in words is one and five twelfths (or seventeen twelfths).

Calculation steps

  1. Add: 3/4 + 2/3 = 3 · 3/4 · 3 + 2 · 4/3 · 4 = 9/12 + 8/12 = 9 + 8/12 = 17/12
    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, 3) = 12. In practice, it is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 3 = 12. In the following intermediate step, the fraction result cannot be further simplified by canceling.
    In other words - three quarters plus two thirds = seventeen twelfths.
