• Multiplying fractions
• Dividing fractions

## What is a fraction?

Fractions are used to represent part of a whole. When we divide something into parts, a fraction shows the number of parts we have out of the total quantity.

For example: If a pizza has a total of 8 slices then 1 slice out of 8 can be expressed in fraction as 1/8.

The upper part of the fraction is known as the numerator while the lower part of the fraction is known as the denominator.

## How to simplify fractions?

This fraction solver performs all the operations on fractions to simplify them. However, below is an example of solving them manually.

Example:

Perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division on a given fractions.

2/3 and 3/4

Step 1: Make the denominator of both fractions the same.

= 2×4/3×4 + 3×3/4×3

`= 8/12 + 9/12`

Step 2: Add and subtract the numerator of both fractions and write the denominator by taking it common.

= (8 + 9)/12

= 17/12

`2/3 + 3/4 = 17/12`

For Subtraction

= (8 - 9)/12

= -1/12

`2/3 - 3/4 = -1/12`

Step 3: Multiply the numerator and denominators of both fractions to each other.

= 2/3 × 3/4

= (2×3)/(3×4)

= 6/12

`= 1/2`

Step 4: Reverse the second fraction by interchanging the position of the numerator and denominator. Also, replace the ÷ sign with × sign.

2/3 ÷ 3/4

`2/3 × 4/3`

Now, multiply the numerator and denominators of both fractions to each other.

`2/3 × 4/3 = 8/9`

Add fractions calculator can accomplish all of the above-performed operations on fractions.
