 # Simplify and 3/8

## Enter fraction(s) below:

 1

## First, evaluate the numerator and denominator

The numerator is
The denominator is 1
This fraction cannot be simplified
From our GCF Calculator, we see that the highest number that reduces and 1 down to an integer is 1.

This number, 1, is called our Greatest Common Factor (GCF), and will be used to reduce both numerator and denominator as seen below.

Reducing the numerator gives us: (1/1) x = 0

Reducing the denominator gives us: (1/1) x 1 = 1

## Our answer is just the reduced numerator divided by the reduced denominator.

 0 1

Since our denominator is = 1, we simplify and just show the numerator as our answer → 0

0/1

You entered a whole number. We need to convert this whole number to a mixed number.
Let's find the whole number first. The formula for this is:
(Numerator/Denominator) in whole numbers

Using the fraction you entered of , let's evaluate:
Whole Number = / 1 = 0
Whole Number = Integer(0)
Whole Number = 0

Now we find the fractional portion of the mixed number. The formula for that is:
 (Numerator - Denominator x Whole Number) Denominator

Using the values we entered and calculated, we get:
 Fraction Portion  = ( - 1 x 0) 1

 Fraction Portion  = - 0 1

 Fraction Portion  = 0 1

Now combine both pieces and piece together the mixed number:
Mixed Number = Whole Number & fraction Portion
Mixed Number = 0 & 0/1

0/1

0/1

### How does the Fractions and Mixed Numbers Calculator work?

Given (improper fractions, proper fraction, mixed numbers, or whole numbers), this performs the following operations:
* Subtraction (Subtracting)
* Positive Difference (Absolute Value of the Difference)
* Multiplication (Multiplying)
* Division (Dividing: complex fraction division is included)
* Compare Fractions
* Simplifying of proper and improper fractions as well as mixed numbers. Fractions will be reduced down as far as possible (Reducing Fractions).
* Reciprocal of a Fraction
* Find all fractions between two fractions
* reduce a fraction
This calculator has 2 inputs.

### What 8 formulas are used for the Fractions and Mixed Numbers Calculator?

1. a/c + b/c = (a + b)/c
2. a/c - b/c = (a - b)/c
3. a/c * b/c = ab/c * c
5. Reciprocal of a/b = b/a
