# Solve Math Problems Fractions

For example: 5 – The number of apples (5) corresponds to the numerator (the number which expresses the number of parts that we wish to represent).13 – The total number of fruits (13) corresponds to the denominator (the number which expresses the number of total possible parts).

Today we are going to look at some examples of word problems with fractions.

Although they may seem more difficult, in reality, word problems involving fractions are just as easy as those involving whole numbers.

The solution to this problem is an irreducible fraction (a fraction which cannot be simplified). In these problems, we should remember how to carry out operations with fractions.

Carefully read the following problem and the steps we have taken to solve it: We find the common denominator: We calculate: Answer: Finally, we are going to look at an example of a word problem with a fraction and a whole number.

To do math with mixed numbers (whole numbers and fractions) use the Mixed Numbers Calculator.

There are 2 cases where you need to know if your fractions have different denominators: There is a way to add or subtract fractions without finding the least common denominator (LCD).Now we will have to convert all the information into a fraction with the same denominator (as we did in the example above) in order to calculate We convert 1 into a fraction with the same denominator: We calculate: Answer: What do you think of this post?Do you see how easy it is to solve word problems with fractions? 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.Sometimes math problems include the word "of," as in What is 1/3 of 3/8?Of means you should multiply so you need to solve 1/3 × 3/8.The slash separates the numerator (number above a fraction line) and denominator (number below).Mixed numerals (mixed fractions or mixed numbers) write as non-zero integer separated by one space and fraction i.e., 1 2/3 (having the same sign). Because slash is both signs for fraction line and division, we recommended use colon (:) as operator of division fractions i.e., 1/2 : 3.Input proper or improper fractions, select the math sign and click Calculate.This is a fraction calculator with steps shown in the solution.
