Adding Fractions Calculator
This adding fractions calculator will help you strengthen your skills of adding fractions.
Remember the following rules when adding fractions:
Rule #1: Never add denominators
Rule #2: Add only the numerators
Rule #3: Add the numerators only and only if
the denominators are the same
1/2 + 6/2 = 7/2
1/2 + 1/3 = ?
You cannot add the numerators because the denominators are not the same
Look for equivalent fractions to make the denominators the same before adding the numerators
1/2 + 1/3 = 3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6
If one denominator divide the other denominator, the calculator below will use the highest denominator as the common denominator. That is how I made it because it keeps your calculation simple.
1/4 + 3/8
4 divide 8, so you can choose 8 as a common denominator
1/4 + 3/8 = 2/8 + 3/8 = 5/8
Also, the calculator will not reduce the answer. I am still working on a calculator that will reduce fractions.Stay tune!
