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:
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:
÷ 4
That is as far as we can go. The fraction simplifies to 23
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:
Example: change 3(2/5) to an improper fraction using the steps described above:
3 × 5 = 15
converting improper fractions to a mixed fraction – in order to convert an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, follow the steps below:
Example: convert 11/4 to a mixed fraction
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:
