■ Get the number that results by adding the two fractions.

### Subtracting mixed numbers steps:

■ Transform the mixed numbers into fractions if applicable.

■ Make use of the algebraic formula for subtraction of fractions: x/y - w/z = (xz - yw) / yz.

■ Obtain the value that results by subtracting the two fractions.

### Multiplying mixed numbers steps:

■ Convert the mixed numbers into fractions where applicable.

■ Apply the algebraic formula for multiplying fractions: x/y * w/z = xw / yz.

■ Calculate the figure that results by multiplying the two fractions.

### Dividing mixed numbers steps:

■ Convert the mixed numbers into fractions if needed.

■ Apply the algebraic formula for division of fractions: x/y ÷ w/z = xz / yw.

■ Compute the number that results by dividing the two fractions.
