How do you put a negative fraction in a calculator?
Calculator Use This is a fraction calculator with steps shown in the solution. If you have negative fractions insert a minus sign before the numerator. So if one of your fractions is -6/7, insert -6 in the numerator and 7 in the denominator. Sometimes math problems include the word “of,” as in What is 1/3 of 3/8?
What is a negative fraction plus a negative fraction?
A negative fraction added to another negative fraction will result in a negative fraction as result. A negative fraction subtracted from another is the same thing as adding the positive complement of that fraction. Thus, if the negative fractions you are adding do not have the same denominator, you can make it so.

How many fractions can you add and subtract at a time?

What to do when fractions have the same denominator?
