Multiplying Fractions Calculator

It is a free online calculator that is used to determine the product of two fractions. Unlike other calculators, you can use the slash and spaces in the text fields while typing in the fractions. It can only multiply two fractions at a time. This calculator has two controls which perform different functions.

The ‘Calculate’ button is used to execute the calculation after filling in the values in their appropriate fields. It gives you the results within a single click making it effective and reliable. The ‘Reset’ button is used to erase all data of the previous calculations from the text fields.

The first procedure is to enter the values in the two text fields. You will use the slash symbol to indicate the numerator and denominator of the fraction. If it has a whole value, you will separate it from the fraction using the space button, for example “1 5/6”. Click the ‘Calculate’ button to perform the calculation. You can also use the equal sign (=) to perform the conversion. The results will be displayed below the two controls in the bottom platform of the calculator. If you want to perform new calculations, you will click the ‘Reset’ button to erase all the text fields.

For example;
Multiply 3 4/12 by 2/4

Solution
= 3 4/12 x 2/4 = 5/3 = 1 2/3 = 1.667

The calculator is useful in performing a variety of calculations. It uses a simple formula to execute the conversions giving you accurate results in lesser time. The calculator is straightforward and flexible when calculating the fractions. It can be used to perform a variety of calculations. However, it can only execute one calculation at a time. It means that you will have to coordinate the ‘Calculate’ and ‘Reset’ buttons in a situation where you have lots of fractions that need to be calculated.
