# Mixed Fraction Calculations

To perform calculations on mixed fractions is actually not much different from calculations for ordinary fractions.

Before doing calculations on mixed fractions, the mixed number must be simplified to a regular fraction to make it easier to operate.

To find out how to simplify the mixed number, see this post.

After a mixed number has been converted to a regular fraction, the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division can be performed as usual.
