# Mixed Fractions Calculator

MiroCalc.net free online fraction calculator allows you to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions with one click. Furthermore, you can solve problems with improper fractions, whole numbers as well as mixed fractions (mixed numbers). Our fractions calculator provides answers as simplified fractions in lowest terms.

We tried to make our mixed fraction calculator as user friendly as possible. Please follow the instructions below in order to perform the desired operation with fractions.

## Online Whole Number Fraction Calculator Instructions:

Our online fraction calculator is very easy to use and fast. Here is all you have to do:

- Enter each fraction in the 'First Fraction' and 'Second Fraction' fields. For example: 1/5 (for 'one-fifths') or 3 4/7 (for 'three and four-seventh'). It is important to leave space between the whole number and the fraction number: 3 4/7
- Choose the action: add '+', subtract '-', multiply '*' or divide '/'
- Click 'Calculate'

For example 1/5 (for 'one-fifths') or 3 4/7 (for 'three and four-seventh'). It is important to leave space between the whole number and the fraction number.

## How Does Our Mixed Fraction Calculator Work?

Before diving into details on how Mirocalc.net calculator for fractions works, let’s explain the basic terms you need to know to properly understand how our fraction calculator works:

Fraction is a part of a whole.

The fraction usually consists of the **numerator** (equal parts) and **denominator** (parts the whole is divided into).

A **numerator** is a number **above** the fraction bar (before the slash) and a **denominator** is a number **below** the fraction bar (after the slash).

Pronunciation of fractions sounds as follows:** 'one-fifths'** for 1/5 and **'three and four-sevenths'** for 3 4/7

Most common forms of fractions are simple fractions, proper/improper fractions, mixed fractions (mixed numbers).

**Simple fraction**: 1/5 (where 1 is a numerator, 5 is a denominator, and 1 is an equal part of 5 parts that make up a whole

**Improper fraction**: 5/3 (where the numerator is larger than the denominator).

**Mixed fraction**: 3 4/7 (consists of a whole number and a proper fraction, where 3 is a whole number indicating three whole units and 4/7 is a fraction number indicating 4 equal parts of 7 parts the whole is divided into).

**Simplification**: a mathematical operation where the numerator and the denominator are divided by their greatest common factor.

Now that we covered the basics, let’s see how our fractions calculator works:

## How MiroCalc.net Fractions Calculator is Adding Fractions

To add two fractions, MiroCalc.net mixed fraction calculator performs a series of steps:

- The fraction calculator checks if your input is a mixed fraction. If yes, it converts it to an improper fraction. An improper fraction numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator. For example, if you entered 1 ⅕, our fraction calculator will convert it to 6/5.
- MiroCalc.net mixed number calculator will find the lowest common denominator, which is the lowest multiple of both denominators. Once found, the mixed fraction calculator multiplies both top and bottom of each fraction by the same amount.
- Our calculator for fractions adds the numerators and put the sum over the denominator
- If the result is an improper fraction (that’s when the numerator is greater than the denominator), our fraction calculator will simplify the result.
- The result displayed by our calculator for fractions could be a number and a fractional part (which is called a mixed fraction).

## How MiroCalc.net Fractions Calculator is Subtracting Fractions

To subtract fractions, MiroCalc.net mixed fraction calculator performs almost the same steps as with adding two fractions:

- If your provided a mixed fraction, the calculator for fractions will convert it to an improper one.
- The fraction calculator finds the lowest common denominator. Once found, the mixed fraction calculator multiplies both top and bottom of each fraction by the same amount.
- Our calculator for fractions subtracts the numerators and puts the difference over the denominator
- The calculator for fractions simplifies the fraction
- The online fraction calculator will display the result

## How MiroCalc.net Fractions Calculator is Multiplying Fractions

To multiply two fractions, MiroCalc.net mixed fraction calculator performs a series of steps:

- If your provided a mixed fraction, the calculator for fractions will convert it to an improper one.
- If the fractions are not in the lowest terms, the calculator for fractions will simplify them
- The mixed fraction calculator will multiply the numerators
- The denominators are also multiplied
- The mixed fraction calculator simplifies the result and displays it.

## How MiroCalc.net Fractions Calculator is Dividing Fractions

To divide two fractions, MiroCalc.net mixed calculator for fractions uses the multiplication algorithm… with a twist:

- If your provided a mixed fraction, the calculator for fractions will convert it to an improper one.
- The two fractions are simplified by the calculator for fractions
- Our mixed fraction calculator flips one of the fractions
- Then, the mixed fraction calculator multiplies the numerators
- The denominators are multiplied
- The result is simplified and displayed

## Benefits of MiroCalc.net Online Fractions Calculator

## What is a Mixed Fraction?

Mixed fraction contains a whole number and a fraction. It looks like this: 1 1/5 or 45 6/7. Mixed fractions are hard to work with and require a certain time to make calculations. A mixed fraction calculator makes the job easy. All you need to do is enter the fractions and choose the operation you need. The result will appear instantaneously.

## How Can I Compare Two Fractions with a Mixed Fractions Calculator?

Let’s say you have two fractions with different denominators, such as 8/23 and 9/25, and you need to compare them. It looks complicated, right? But not with our mixed fractions calculator.

Even if our whole number and fraction calculator only lets you add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions, you can use it also to compare two fractions.

If you ask yourself how, here is the answer: just subtract them. If the result given by the mixed fractions calculator is less than zero, it means that the first fraction is less than the second one. Conversely, if the fraction calculator shows a greater than zero result, it just means that the first fraction is greater than the second one.
