# Adding Mixed Fractions Calculator

Fractions are defined as the parts of a whole and can be represented as a numerical value. A fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where, the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing.

## How to Find Sum of Two Mixed Fractions?

**A mixed fraction** is defined as a fraction** **represented as a combination of a whole and a proper fraction.

A mixed fraction is represented as \(a\frac{b}{c}\) = \(\frac{(a × c) + b}{c}\)

Please follow the below steps on how to add two mixed fractions

**Step 1:**Convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions.**Step 2:**Check the values of denominators after converting them into improper fractions.**Step 3:**If the denominator values are the same, add the numerators and express the fraction in its simplest form.**Step 4:**If the denominator values are different, find the LCM of the denominators to make them equal and then add the numerators.

**Solved Example:**

Find the sum of two mixed fractions \(5 \frac{2}{3}\) and \(2 \frac{5}{4} \)

**Solution:**

We first convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions.

\(5 \frac{2}{3}\)= \(\frac{(5*3)+2}{3}\) = \(\frac{17}{3}\)

\(2 \frac{5}{4} \) = \(\frac{(2*4)+5}{4}\)= \(\frac{13}{4}\)

Now, \(\frac{17}{3}\) + \(\frac{13}{4}\)( As the denominator values are different, take LCM of denominators, that is, LCM of (3,4) which is 12.

=\(\frac{17*4}{12}\) + \(\frac{13*3}{12}\)

=\(\frac{68}{12}\) + \(\frac{39}{12}\)

=\(\frac{68+39}{12}\)

=\(\frac{107}{12}\)

Similarly, you can try the calculator and find the addition for the following mixed fractions:

- \(2 \frac{5}{4}\) and \(3 \frac{8}{4}\)
- \(3 \frac{8}{7}\) and \(4 \frac{3}{5}\)
