# Dividing Fractions Calculator to Calculate Quotient of Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Calculator Preferences
Dividing Fractions Calculator

This fraction calculator will divide any combination of a fraction, a whole number, or a mixed number, and then simplify the resulting fraction. Plus, the calculator will show its work and give a step-by-step summary of how it arrived at the quotient. The Learn tab includes:

• How to divide fractions.
• How to divide fractions and mixed numbers.
• How to divide fractions by whole numbers.

#### Selected Data Record:

A Data Record is a set of calculator entries that are stored in your web browser's Local Storage. If a Data Record is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record. If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".

#### Dividend:

The first term in the division equation. In the equation 1/3 ÷ 1/2, 1/3 would be the dividend.

Factor options: If the dividend is a whole number only, leave the numerator and denominator blank. If the dividend is a mixed number, enter a positive integer for the whole number, the numerator, and denominator. If the dividend is a fraction only, leave the whole number field blank.

#### Quotient of fractions:

This is the result of dividing the entered fractions, mixed numbers, and/or whole numbers. After inverting the divisor and calculating the quotient of fractions, the dividing fractions calculator will show its work and give a detailed explanation of each step it took to arrive at the quotient.

Help and Tools

#### Help and Tools:

This section, which you can Unstick or Hide in the Calculator Preferences (just above the top of the calculator), contains the following tabs (content too long to fit within bordered frame can be scrolled up and down):

About: Click this tab for an introduction to the calculator.

Instructions: Click this tab for step-by-step instructions for using the calculator.

Terms: Click this tab for a list of the descriptions that are located within each popup help button (info icons).

PCalc: Click this tab for a handy "pocket" calculator you can use when you need to calculate an entry needed for the calculator.

Data: Click this tab to save a set of entries or a note in between visits. Entries and notes will be stored to your web browser's local storage (if supported by your browser of choice), meaning they can only be recalled with the same device and web browser you were using when you saved them. If you'd like to save entries and notes between devices you can do so by subscribing to the Ad-Free Member Version.

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".
