Complex fractions, also known as compound fractions, are a type of fraction that involves more than one fraction in the numerator or denominator. These types of fractions can be difficult to simplify, especially for those who are new to mathematics or who are struggling with fractional concepts.
The process of simplifying complex fractions can be time-consuming and tedious. Our Complex Fraction Simplifier eliminates the need for manual calculations and reduces the risk of error. The calculator takes in a complex fraction as an example and simplifies it to produce a proper or improper fraction answer. It is an essential tool for students, educators, and anyone who needs to simplify complex fractions.
You may enter common fraction as: numerator / denominator, where numerator and denominator are integer numbers, e.g. 1/2. Complex fraction are allowed as well, e.g: (7/8)/(9/4). You may also freely use other three arithmetic operations:
+ - addition
- - subtraction
* - multiplication
Use bracket () to separate subexpressions. If calculation result is an improper fraction, the calculator will show it as a mixed number in the last output field.
An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the top part of the fraction) is equal to or greater than the denominator (the bottom part of the fraction). In other words, an improper fraction represents a value that is greater than or equal to 1. For example, 7/3 is an improper fraction. An improper fraction can be converted to a mixed number, which is a whole number and a proper fraction combined. A proper fraction is a fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator. For example, the improper fraction 7/3 can be converted to the mixed number 2 1/3.
