A fraction represents a part of a whole or, more generally, any numberof equal parts.The numbers of the form a/b, where a and b are whole numbers, and b is not equal to 0, are known as fractions.
The simplify fraction calculator tool can be used to solve and evaluate different kinds of situations involving calculation of fractions.

Example 1: Find the sum of the two fractions: 13/14 + 27/35

Solution: This problem helps us to understand the method we use to simplify the addition of fractions.
We find out the LCM of 14 and 35 = (7 x 2 x 5) = 70
So, the initial expression, 13/14 + 27/35, becomes:
= (65 + 54)/70
= 119/70
= 17/10
Therefore, the answer to the question is17/10

Example 2: Simplify: 12/18 – 15/45
Solution:

Step 1:- First we simplify both the fractions

a)      12/18
= 12:6/18:6
= 2/3
b)      15/45
=15:15/45:15
= 1/3

After the simplification step, we have
12/18 - 15/45
= 2/3 - 1/3 = 1/3.

Step 2:-Now we have fractions with the same denominators so we will subtract the   numerators to get the result. After this step we have:

12/18   -   15/45
=   2/3 - 1/3 = (2 – 1)/3 = 1/3
