Add Fractions - Example & Calculator

Fractions addition calculator is an online tool to find the sum of two regular or irregular fractions in fraction & decimal form. Refer the example calculations to know how to add two fractions with same or different denominators.

Fractions Addition - Example for Equal Denominators

The below corresponding examples calculation for regular & irregular fractions addition shows how to find the sum of two fractions with same or equal denominators.

Note :
To find the sum of fractions with same denominators, take the common denominators out, add the numerators together and simplify the fraction to its lowest terms.

Example 1 :
Add two regular fractions with same denominators.
Example Question :
Find the sum of 3/5 and 2/5 in fraction form?
Answer :
SUM = 3/5 + 2/5
= 1/5(3 + 2)
= 7/5
= 1.4
The sum of 3/5 and 2/5 is equals to 7/5 in fraction form & 1.4 in decimal form. Use this calculator to verify the answers.

Example 2 :
Add two irregular fractions with same denominators.
Example Question :
Find the sum of 6/5 and 9/5 in fraction form?
Answer :
SUM = 6/5 + 9/5
= 1/5(6 + 9)
= 15/5
= 3
The sum of 6/5 and 9/5 is equals to 15/5 in fraction form & 3 in decimal form. Use this calculator to verify the answers.

Fractions Addition - Example for Unequal Denominators

The below corresponding example calculations for regular & irregular fractions addition shows how to find the sum of two fractions with different or unequal denominators. Use this calculator to verify the below answers or addition between any two fractional numbers.

Answer through LCD Method:
Note :
To find the sum of regular fractions with different or unequal denominators, find the LCD for the denominators, multiply the LCD with both numerator & denominator and simplify each fraction to make these unequal denominators equal to each other and to perform the addition similar to fractions with same denominators.

Example 1 :
Add two regular fractions with different denominators.
Example Question :
Find the sum of two regular fractions 1/4 and 3/8 in fraction form?
Answer :
SUM = 1/4 + 3/8
= {(1 x 8)/(4 x 8)} + {(3 x 8)/(8 x 8)}
= 2/8 + 3/8
= 1/8(2 + 3)
= 5/8
= 0.625
The sum of 1/4 and 3/8 is equals to 5/8 in fraction form & 0.625 in decimal form. Use this fraction addition calculator to verify the results.

Example 2 :
Add two irregular fractions with different denominators.
Example Question :
Find the sum of two irregular fractions 7/3 and 11/6 in fraction form?
Answer :
SUM = 7/3 + 11/6
= {(7 x 6)/(3 x 6)} + {(11 x 6)/(6 x 6)}
= {(7 x 2)/6} + {11/6}
= 14/6 + 11/6
= 1/6(14 + 11)
= 25/6
= 4.16
The sum of 7/3 and 11/6 is equals to 25/6 in fraction form & 4.16 in decimal form. Use this calculator to verify the results.
