In mathematics, a fraction is a number that represents a part of a whole. It consists of a numerator and a denominator. The numerator represents the number of equal parts of a whole, while the denominator is the total number of parts that 3D said whole. For example, in the fraction of

3
8
, the numerator is 3, và the denominator is 8. A more illustrative sầu example could involve a pie with 8 slices. 1 of those 8 slices would constitute the numerator of a fraction, while the total of 8 slices that comprises the whole pie would be the denominator. If a person were lớn eat 3 slices, the remaining fraction of the pie would therefore be
5
8
as shown in the image lớn the right. lưu ý that the denominator of a fraction cannot be 0, as it would make the fraction undefined. Fractions can undergo many different operations, some of which are mentioned below.

Addition:

Unlike adding and subtracting integers such as 2 and 8, fractions require a common denominator khổng lồ undergo these operations. One method for finding a comtháng denominator involves multiplying the numerators và denominators of all of the fractions involved by the product of the denominators of each fraction. Multiplying all of the denominators ensures that the new denominator is certain to be a multiple of each individual denominator. The numerators also need to be multiplied by the appropriate factors khổng lồ preserve the value of the fraction as a whole. This is arguably the simplest way to ensure that the fractions have sầu a comtháng denominator. However, in most cases, the solutions to these equations will not appear in simplified size (the provided sumuoi.mobi computes the simplification automatically). Below is an example using this method.

This process can be used for any number of fractions. Just multiply the numerators and denominators of each fraction in the problem by the hàng hóa of the denominators of all the other fractions (not including its own respective sầu denominator) in the problem.

An alternative sầu method for finding a common denominator is to determine the least comtháng multiple (LCM) for the denominators, then add or subtract the numerators as one would an integer. Using the least comtháng multiple can be more efficient & is more likely to result in a fraction in simplified size. In the example above sầu, the denominators were 4, 6, và 2. The least comtháng multiple is the first shared multiple of these three numbers.

Multiples of 2: 2, 4, 6, 8 10, 12
Multiples of 4: 4, 8, 12
Multiples of 6: 6, 12

The first multiple they all tóm tắt is 12, so this is the least common multiple. To complete an addition (or subtraction) problem, multiply the numerators and denominators of each fraction in the problem by whatever value will make the denominators 12, then add the numerators.

EX: 1

Multiplication:

Multiplying fractions is fairly straightforward. Unlượt thích adding và subtracting, it is not necessary to lớn compute a comtháng denominator in order to lớn multiply fractions. Simply, the numerators và denominators of each fraction are multiplied, & the result forms a new numerator và denominator. If possible, the solution should be simplified. Refer to lớn the equations below for clarification.

Division:

The process for dividing fractions is similar to that for multiplying fractions. In order lớn divide fractions, the fraction in the numerator is multiplied by the reciprocal of the fraction in the denominator. The reciprocal of a number a is simply

1

. When a is a fraction, this essentially involves exchanging the position of the numerator and the denominator. The reciprocal of the fraction

Simplification:

It is often easier lớn work with simplified fractions. As such, fraction solutions are commonly expressed in their simplified forms.

for example, is more cumbersome than

2
. The sumuoi.mobi provided returns fraction inputs in both improper fraction form as well as mixed number form. In both cases, fractions are presented in their lowest forms by dividing both numerator and denominator by their greathử nghiệm common factor.

Converting between fractions & decimals:

Converting from decimals to lớn fractions is straightforward. It does, however, require the understanding that each decimal place khổng lồ the right of the decimal point represents a power of 10; the first decimal place being 101, the second 102, the third 103, & so on. Simply determine what power of 10 the decimal extends khổng lồ, use that power of 10 as the denominator, enter each number to the right of the decimal point as the numerator, and simplify. For example, looking at the number 0.1234, the number 4 is in the fourth decimal place, which constitutes 104, or 10,000. This would make the fraction

1234
10000
, which simplifies to
617
5000
, since the greatest common factor between the numerator và denominator is 2.

Similarly, fractions with denominators that are powers of 10 (or can be converted to lớn powers of 10) can be translated lớn decimal khung using the same principles. Take the fraction

1
2
for example. To convert this fraction inkhổng lồ a decimal, first convert it inkhổng lồ the fraction of
5
10
. Knowing that the first decimal place represents 10-1,
5
10
can be converted khổng lồ 0.5. If the fraction were instead
5
100
, the decimal would then be 0.05, and so on. Beyond this, converting fractions into lớn decimals requires the operation of long division.
