If you have negative fractions insert a minus sign before the numerator.

So if one of your fractions is -6/7, insert -6 in the numerator and 7 in the denominator.

Now we will have to convert all the information into a fraction with the same denominator (as we did in the example above) in order to calculate We convert 1 into a fraction with the same denominator: We calculate: Answer: What do you think of this post?

Do you see how easy it is to solve word problems with fractions?

The formula for adding fractions is: To perform math operations on mixed number fractions use our Mixed Numbers Calculator.

This calculator can also simplify improper fractions into mixed numbers and shows the work involved.Sometimes math problems include the word "of," as in What is 1/3 of 3/8?Of means you should multiply so you need to solve 1/3 × 3/8.To do math with mixed numbers (whole numbers and fractions) use the Mixed Numbers Calculator.There are 2 cases where you need to know if your fractions have different denominators: There is a way to add or subtract fractions without finding the least common denominator (LCD).For example: 5 – The number of apples (5) corresponds to the numerator (the number which expresses the number of parts that we wish to represent).13 – The total number of fruits (13) corresponds to the denominator (the number which expresses the number of total possible parts).Use this fraction calculator for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions.Answers are fractions in lowest terms or mixed numbers in reduced form.Today we are going to look at some examples of word problems with fractions.Although they may seem more difficult, in reality, word problems involving fractions are just as easy as those involving whole numbers.
