Adding Subtracting Fractions Calculator
If you want to add two fractions together or subtract one fraction from another, please use the calculator below.
To enter a fraction, you have to enter the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 4/5 or 23/7
To enter a mixed fraction, first type the whole number followed by space followed by the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 3 1/4 (3 and a quarter).
