A fraction calculator allows a user to specify two fractions' numerators and denominators and perform basic mathematical operations on them. A user can do addition, subtraction, multiplication or division of fractions.
Calculators that add fractions can be found both in-store and online at retailers such as Walmart, Sears and Office Depot. Prices and availability vary by brand of calculator, store and location.

The decimal number 0.4 is equivalent to 4/10 in fraction form. This fraction can be reduced to its simplest form by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common factor (GCF). The GCF of four and 10 is two. Therefore, 0.4 is equal to 2/5.
To calculate equivalent fractions, take a fraction and divide or multiply both of its numbers by the same figure. An action must always be performed to both parts of the fraction when calculating equivalent figures.
