Mixed number calculator



This 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 + 5/6 = 19/12 = 1 7/121.5833333

Spelled result in words is one and seven twelfths (or nineteen twelfths).

Calculation steps

  1. Add: 3/4 + 5/6 = 3 · 3/4 · 3 + 5 · 2/6 · 2 = 9/12 + 10/12 = 9 + 10/12 = 19/12
    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, 6) = 12. In practice, it is enough to find the common denominator (not necessarily the lowest) by multiplying the denominators: 4 × 6 = 24. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling.
    In other words - three quarters plus five sixths = nineteen twelfths.
