This calculator subtracts two fractions. When fractions have different denominators, firstly convert all fractions khổng lồ common denominator. Find Least Common Denominator (LCD) or simple multiply all denominators khổng lồ find common denominator. When all denominators are same, simply subtract the numerators and place the result over the common denominator. Then simplify the result to lớn the lowest terms or a mixed number.

Rules for expressions with fractions: Fractions - use a forward slash lớn divide the numerator by the denominator, i.e., for five-hundredths, enter 5/100. If you use mixed numbers, leave a space between the whole & fraction parts.Mixed numerals (mixed numbers or fractions) keep one space between the integer andfraction and use a forward slash to input đầu vào fractions i.e., 12/3 . An example of a negative mixed fraction: -5 1/2.Because slash is both signs for fraction line và division, use a colon (:) as the operator of division fractions i.e., 50% : 1/3.Decimals (decimal numbers) enter with a decimal point .

The calculator follows well-known rules for the order of operations. The most common mnemonics for remembering this order of operations are: PEMDAS - Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction. BEDMAS - Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction BODMAS - Brackets, Of or Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. GEMDAS - Grouping Symbols - brackets (), Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

MDAS - Multiplication and Division have the same precedence over Addition & Subtraction. The MDAS rule is the order of operations part of the PEMDAS rule. Be careful; always vị multiplication and division before addition & subtraction. Some operators (+ và -) & (* and /) has the same priority và then must evaluate from left to right.
