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).

This fraction calculator works out Fraction1 + Fraction2, or Fraction1 - Fraction2

Adding and Subtracting Fractions Worksheet

Here you will find a selection of Fraction worksheets designed to help your child understand how to add and subtract 2 fractions.

The sheets are carefully graded so that the easiest sheets come first, and the most difficult sheet is the last one.

I suggest that you start with adding fractions sheet 1, then go to subtracting fractions sheet 1, then adding sheet 2, subtracting sheet 2, etc. Once you have mastered these, try the adding and subtracting sheets section.

Before your child tackles adding and subtracting fractions, they should be confident with equivalent fractions.

  • apply their understanding of equivalent fractions;
  • add 2 fractions with different denominators;
  • subtract 2 fractions with different denominators.
