This fraction calculator makes your work easier. It helps you add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. The tool shows long division steps when needed. It also simplifies fractions to their lowest terms or presents them as mixed numbers.
It works with both proper and improper fractions. It converts fractions to decimals. It also handles negative fractions and finds the least common denominator. This calculator helps users to do fraction subtraction, addition, multiplication, and division.
By following these steps, the calculator ensures you get the correct answer. It eliminates the need for manual calculations like long divisions or complex cross-multiplication.
The calculator simplifies improper fractions, turning them into mixed numbers if necessary. Here’s how it simplifies:
Example:
\(\frac{7}{3} = 2 \frac{1}{3}\)
To divide fractions, use the reciprocal method. This means keep, change, and flip. Then, multiply. This calculator handles the steps for you.
Example:
\(\frac{1}{2} \div \frac{3}{4} = \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{4}{3} = \frac{4}{6} = \frac{2}{3}\)
For multiplying fractions, multiply the numerators and the denominators, and simplify if possible.
The fraction calculator helps you add or subtract fractions. It finds the least common denominator (LCD) and shows each step of the operation.
Example:
\(\frac{1}{4} + \frac{2}{3} = \frac{3}{12} + \frac{8}{12} = \frac{11}{12}\)
In the case of fraction subtraction:
\(\frac{5}{6} - \frac{1}{3} = \frac{5}{6} - \frac{2}{6} = \frac{5 - 2}{6} = \frac{3}{6} = \frac{1}{2}\)
Handling negative fractions is no different. You can enter negative values and the fraction calculator works out the results. It shows them in improper fractions or simplified forms.
When working with decimals, understanding the powers of 10 is important. This concept simplifies converting fractions to decimals. It also helps convert decimals back to fractions.
For example, to convert the decimal 0.75 to a fraction:
This shows how understanding powers of 10 can simplify the conversion process.
Use the calculator to add, subtract, multiply, or divide fractions. It finds the least common denominator and simplifies the results for you.
\(\frac{1}{2}\) is a proper fraction and equals 0.5 as a decimal.
To subtract fractions, find the least common denominator (LCD). This aligns with the denominators. Then, subtract the numerators.
0.5 equals \(\frac{1}{2}\) as a fraction.
Use the fraction-to-decimal calculator to convert decimals like 0.75 to fractions like \(\frac{3}{4}\).
Enter your fractions and choose the operation (add, subtract, multiply, divide). The calculator will guide you step by step to the correct answer.
Simplify fractions by dividing the numerator and the denominator. Use the greatest common factor (GCF) for this.
\(\frac{1}{4}\) multiplied by \(\frac{1}{4}\) equals \(\frac{1}{16}\).
To divide fractions, multiply by the reciprocal of the second fraction. Use the keep, change, flip rule.
Apply the root to both the numerator and the denominator.
