If you know how to convert a mixed number into an improper fraction, you will be good. For regular fractions, just use a slash:1/2, 2/4, 3/6, stuff like that.

These examples should aid you with proper syntax.

Examples | Proper Syntax | Tips | |

\(\frac{3}{5}\) | 3/5 | The "/" symbol is utilized to denote a fraction. | |

\(1\frac{3}{5}\) | 1+3/5 | ||

\(\frac{1+3}{5}\) | (1+3)/5 | Parentheses take absolute precedence, so the calculator will perform the action inside the parentheses before proceeding with the division. | |

\(\frac{1+3}{5-9}\) | (1+3)/(5-9) | Parentheses enclose expressions of both the numerator and denominator. | |

\(\frac{3}{5}+\frac{7}{8}\) | 3/5+7/8 | ||

\(\frac{3}{5}*\frac{7}{8}\) | 3/5*7/8 | In this case, parentheses are superfluous as multiplying by 7 first and then dividing by 8 will not alter the result. | |

\(\frac{3}{5}\div\frac{7}{8}\) | (3/5)/(7/8) | Parentheses are essential; otherwise, the calculator will divide 3 by 5 and then by 7 and then by 8 instead of dividing 3/5 by 7/8. | |
