## Steps to Perform Arithmetic Operations on Mixed Numbers

Below provided are some simple steps that are useful to add, subtract, multiply and divide two mixed numbers. Keep an eye on them and go through the instructions to find the result easily.

• Let us take any two mixed numbers to perform the arithmetical operations.
• Convert the mixed numbers to improper fraction.
• Then, place the symbol in between those two improper fraction numbers.
• Now, add or subtract or multiply or divide those numbers.
• Obtained fraction will be the result.

Example

Question: Perform all arithmetic operations on 5(2/3) and 4(6/8)?

Solution:

Given mixed numbers are 5(2/3) and 4(6/8)

The improper fraction of 5(2/3) is 5 + 2/3 = (15 + 2) / 3 = 17/3

Improper fraction of 4(6/8) is 4 + 6/8 = (32 + 6) / 8 = 38/8

= 17/3 + 38/8

Get the lcm of 3, 8 i.e 24

17/3 + 38/8 = (17 * 8 + 38 * 3) / 24

= 250/24

Subtraction: 5(2/3) - 4(6/8)

= 17/3 - 38/8

= (17 * 8 - 38 * 3) / 24 = (136 - 114) / 24

= 22/24

Multiplication: 5(2/3) * 4(6/8)

= 17/3 * 38/8

= (17 * 38) / (8 * 3)

= 532 / 24

Division: 5(2/3) / 4(6/8)

= 17/3 / 38/8

= (17 * 8) / (3 * 38)

= 136 / 114

∴ 5(2/3) + 4(6/8) = 250/24, 5(2/3) - 4(6/8) = 22/24, 5(2/3) * 4(6/8) = 532/24, 5(2/3) / 4(6/8) = 136/114.

1. What is the example of mixed number?

Mixed number is a combination of whole number and a fraction. Some of the examples of mixed numbers are 2(3/4), 5(6/7), 6(9/10), etc.

2. How do you simplify mixed numbers?

The simpler form of mixed number can be a fraction or decimal number. For example take 2(3/4), to simplify this mixed number you have to add whole number and fraction.

2(3/4) = 2 + 3/4 = (8 + 3) / 4 = 11/4

3. How do you calculate arithmetical operations on mixed numbers using calculator?

Provide two mixed numbers in the specified input numbers and press on the calculate button. You must also choose any one arithmetical operation in the calculator to get the exact output easily.

4. What is the formula to perform the arithmetical operations on a/b & c/d?

Addition is a/b + c/d = (a * d + b * c) / (b * d)

Subtraction is a/b - c/d = (a * d - b * c) / (b * d)

Multiplication is a/b * c/d = (a * c) / (b * d)

Division (a/b) / (c/d) = (a * d) / (b * c)
