What is a Fraction Calculator?
'Fraction Calculator' is an online tool that can add, subtract, multiply or divide any two fractions. Cuemath's 'Fraction Calculator' helps you to solve these fractions within a few seconds.
Note: Enter numbers up to 4 digits.
How to Use the Fraction Calculator?
Follow these simple steps to use the calculator:
 Step 1: Enter the two fractions in the input boxes and select the arithmetic operation to be performed from the dropdown menu.
 Step 2: Click on "Calculate" to solve the fractions.
 Step 3: Click on "Reset" to clear the field and enter the new values.
How to Perform Arithmetic Operations on Fraction?
A fraction is made up of two numbers and is written in the form of x/y, where x is the numerator and y is the denominator. The four arithmetic operations of addition(+), subtraction(), multiplication(×), and division(÷) can be performed on the fractions with different methods.
 Addition: The addition operation of fractions involves the use of LCM of the denominators. The denominator of both the fractions needs to be the same so that the numerators can be added.
 Subtraction: The subtraction follows the same process as that of addition. The denominators of both the fractions need to be made equal before subtracting the numerators.
 Multiplication: The multiplication of fractions is much easier than addition or subtraction. First, multiply the numerators, then multiply the denominators. After that, reduce the fraction to its lowest terms, if needed.
 Division: The division process is similar to the multiplication. Here, we multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal (inverse) of the second fraction, and then solve it in the same way as we do in the multiplication of fractions.
Solved Examples on Fraction Calculator

Solved Example 1:
Add (2/3) + (5/6)
Solution:
(2/3) + (5/6) = (2 × 2)/(3 × 2) + (5 × 1)/6
= 4/6 + 5/6
= (4 + 5)/6
= 9/6
= 3/2
= \(1\frac{1}{2}\)

Solved Example 2:
Subtract (7/8)  (1/4)
Solution:
(7/8)  (1/4) = (7×1)/8  (1 × 2)/(2 × 4)
= 7/8  2/8
= (7  2)/8
= 5/8

Solved Example 3:
Multiply (4/15) × (9/16)
Solution:
(4/15) × (9/16) = 36/240
= 3/20

Solved Example 4:
Divide (2/3) ÷ (4/5)
Solution:
(2/3) ÷ (4/5) = (2/3) × (5/4)
= 10/12
= 5/6
