Fraction simplifier simplifies both proper and improper fractions into a smaller fraction or into a mixed number. When this simplifier gives an answer in both reduced fraction and a mixed number, some people call this a round down to lowest denominator

Fraction simplifier is a way of trying to put together some fractions into a whole number. Three (3) types of fraction are identified, they are:

- A proper fraction
- An improper fraction
- A mixed fraction

Proper fractions – this kind of fraction indicates a fraction whereby the numerator i.e. the number on top of the division line is less than the denominator i.e. the number below the division line. To further explain proper fractions, some fraction simplifier examples in form of images are given below:

- >5 8/ 5 6 = 324(5/8) ⋰ 424(5/6) =15/20 = 3/4
- ÷ 4

It is also possible to convert either from an improper fraction to a mixed fraction or from a mixed fraction to an improper fraction. In any case, there certain steps or procedures we must follow

converting a mixed fraction into improper fraction - to convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction, these steps must be followed:

- Multiply the whole number by the fraction's bottom number, i.e. the denominator
- Add that the answer you get from step one above to the top number, i.e. the numerator
- Finally, write down the result on top of the bottom number (denominator)

Example: change 3(2/5) to an improper fraction using the steps described above:

- Multiply the whole number, i.e. 3 by the fraction's denominator, i.e. 5:
- Add the fraction's numerator, i.e. 2 to the answer in step one: 15 + 2 = 17
- Last step, put the answer in step over the denominator i.e.: 17/5

converting improper fractions to a mixed fraction – in order to convert an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, follow the steps below:

- Divide the numerator by the denominator
- Write down the whole number answer
- Write down any remainder above the denominator

Example: convert 11/4 to a mixed fraction

- Divide the top number by the bottom number: 11 ÷ 4 = 2 but with a remainder of 3
- Write down the 2 and then write down the remainder 3 over the denominator 4 i.e.: 2(4/3)

Fractions has for a very long time being part of everyday usage, it’s just that people do not really pay attention to it. A very good example of an everyday usage of fractions are given below:

- It is a lot easier to say
*I ate*2(1/2)*loafs of bread*, instead of saying*I ate*5/2*loafs of bread* - It is also easier to say that
*John drank*3(1/2)*of wine bottles,*rather than saying*He drank*7/2*of wine bottles*
