This calculator performs basic and advanced fraction operations, expressions with fractions combined with integers, decimals, and mixed numbers. It also shows detailed step-by-step information about the fraction calculation procedure. The calculator helps in finding value from multiple fractions operations. Solve problems with two, three, or more fractions and numbers in one expression.

Result:

2 1/2 = 2 1/2 = 2 · 2 + 1/2 = 4 + 1/2 = 5/2 = 2 1/2 = 2.5

Spelled result in words is five halfs (or two and one half).
Conversion a mixed number 2 1/2 to a improper fraction: 2 1/2 = 2 1/2 = 2 · 2 + 1/2 = 4 + 1/2 = 5/2To find a new numerator:a) Multiply the whole number 2 by the denominator 2. Whole number 2 equally 2 * 2/2 = 4/2b) Add the answer from previous step 4 to the numerator 1. New numerator is 4 + 1 = 5c) Write a previous answer (new numerator 5) over the denominator 2.Two and one half is five halfs
Rules for expressions with fractions: Fractions - use a forward slash to divide the numerator by the denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter 5/100. If you use mixed numbers, leave a space between the whole and fraction parts.Mixed numerals (mixed numbers or fractions) keep one space between the integer andfraction and use a forward slash to input fractions i.e., 12/3 . An example of a negative mixed fraction: -5 1/2.Because slash is both signs for fraction line and division, use a colon (:) as the operator of division fractions i.e., 1/2 : 1/3.Decimals (decimal numbers) enter with a decimal point . and they are automatically converted to fractions - i.e. 1.45.

The calculator follows well-known rules for the order of operations
. The most common mnemonics for remembering this order of operations are: PEMDAS - Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction. BEDMAS - Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction BODMAS - Brackets, Of or Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. GEMDAS - Grouping Symbols - brackets (){}, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

MDAS - Multiplication and Division have the same precedence over Addition and Subtraction. The MDAS rule is the order of operations part of the PEMDAS rule. Be careful; always do multiplication and division before addition and subtraction. Some operators (+ and -) and (* and /) has the same priority and then must evaluate from left to right.
