Fractions are of different types and Improper fractions are the fractions where the number in the denominator
is lesser than the number in the numerator. Improper fractions can be simplified if possible and can be
converted to various other number forms. Improper fractions calculator is a fun tool which can simplify or
evaluate improper fractions.
Example 1: Check whether the given fraction, 54/42 is improper fraction or not, and simplify.
Given fraction: 54/42
In the above fraction -> Number in denominator (42)< Number in numerator (54)
Hence, yes it is an improper fraction!
In order to simplify the given fraction, we can split the numbers into prime factors.
54 = 2 * 3 * 3 * 3
42 = 2 * 3 * 7
Cancelling the common factors, we get -> 54/42 = 9/7 -> this is also an improper fraction!
Hence the simplified form of 54/42 = 9/7.
Example 2: Add the given improper fractions, 13/12 and 15/12
To the add the given fractions, the fraction notation looks like -> 13/12 + 15/12
In order to add two fractions, we need to first have a common denominator.
’12’ is already a common denominator, hence we get:
13/12 + 15/12 = (13 + 15)/12 -> 28/12
We can simplify it further by dividing numerator and denominator by ‘4’ -> 28/12 = 7/3
Hence we get 13/12 + 15/12 = 28/12 -> 7/3
