Fraction Calculator Formulas
Our Fraction Calculator uses the following formulas for various operations:
- Addition: a/b + c/d = (a × d + b × c) / (b × d)
- Subtraction: a/b - c/d = (a × d - b × c) / (b × d)
- Multiplication: a/b × c/d = (a × c) / (b × d)
- Division: (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = (a × d) / (b × c)
- Simplification: Reduce the numerator and denominator of the fraction to their lowest terms.
- Decimal to Fraction: Convert the decimal value to a fraction by expressing it as a ratio of the decimal part to a power of 10.
- Fraction to Decimal: Divide the numerator by the denominator to get the decimal value.
