 # simplifying fractions solve online

Introduction:

Fraction is defined as an equal amount of one whole object. It can be represented as  `a / b`  where 'a' denotes the value called numerator and 'b' denotes the value called denominator and q not equal to zero.

Fractional functions:

The fraction rule is used in following functions,

•   Addition
•   Subtraction
•   Multiplication
•   Division

There are 3 Simple Steps to add fractions:

Step 1: Make sure the bottom of the numbers that is denominators are the same or not

Step 2: Add the top numbers (the numerators). Put the answer over the same denominator as in step 1

Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if needed)

Example:

Solve:  `1 / 4` + `1 / 4`

Step 1: The bottom numbers are already the same. Go straight to step 2.

Step 2: Add the numerator and put the answer over the same denominator:

`1 / 4` + `1 / 4` = `(1+1) / 4` = `2 / 4`

Step 3:  Simplify the fraction:

`2 / 4`  =  `1 / 2`

There are 3 simple steps to subtract fractions:

Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same or not

Step 2: Subtract the top numbers (the numerators). Put the answer over the same denominator.

Step 3: Simplify the fraction.

Example:

Solve:  `2 / 4` – `1 / 8`

Step1:  The bottom numbers are not same. So we can find the L.C.D

L.C.D for 4 and 8 is 8

(`2/4 ` `xx` `2/2` ) – `1/8` .that is `4/8` -`1/8`

Now the bottom numbers are same.

Step 2: Then subtract the numerator and substitute the answer over the same denominator:

`4/ 8`  - `1 / 8`  = `(4 - 1) / 8` =  `3 / 8`

Step 3: Simplify the fraction:

Simplified form =  `3 / 8 `

Multiplying fractions for simplifying fractions solve online:

There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions:

Step 1: Multiply the top numbers (the numerators).

Step 2: Multiply the bottom numbers (the denominators).

Step 3: Simplify the fraction if needed.

Example:

Solve:  `1 / 2 ` `xx` `2 / 5`

Step 1: Multiply the top numbers:

`1 / 2` `xx` ` 2 / 5`  = ` 2 / (2 . 5)`

Step 2: Multiply the bottom numbers:

`1 / 2 ` `xx` ` 2 / 5`  =  `2 / 10`

Step 3: Simplify the fraction:

`2 / 10` =  `1 / 5`

Dividing Fractions for simplifying fractions solve online:

There are 3 Simple Steps to Divide Fractions:

Step 1: Turn the second fraction into as a reciprocal of itself.

Step 2: Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal

Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if needed)

Example:

Solve:  `(1 / 3)` / ` (1 / 6) `

Step 1: Turn the second fraction upside-down (the reciprocal):

`1 / 6 ` = `6 / 1`

Step 2: Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal:

`(1 / 3)` `xx` `(6 / 1)`  = `((1 * 6) / (3 * 1)` ) = `6 / 3`

Step 3: Simplify the fraction:

` 6 / 3 `  = 2
