We must add the two fractions together in order to find the sum of 1/4 and 1/2. To accomplish this, we must ensure that the fractions share a denominator. In this instance, since 4 is the least frequent multiple of both 4 and 2, we can express 1/2 as 2/4. The fractions can then be combined:
1/4 + 2/4 = (1 + 2)/4 = 3/4
Therefore, 1/4 plus 1/2 equals 3/4.
What is the excel calculation for 1/4 + 1/2?
By typing “=1/4” and pressing Enter, you can enter the fraction 1/4 into a cell in Excel. The fraction 1/2 can then be added by entering “=1/2” in a cell and pressing Enter. You can simply use the formula “=A1+B1” to add the two fractions together, where A1 and B1 are the cells that correspond to the fractions 1/4 and 1/2. You will receive 3/4 as a result of this.
You can also directly enter “=1/4+1/2” into a cell and hit Enter to add the fractions. Additionally, you will receive the result of 3/4.
An illustration of how the calculation would appear in Excel is shown below:
A B C
1 1/4 1/2 =A1+B1
Cell A1 in this example contains the fraction 1/4, cell B1 contains the fraction 1/2, and cell C1 contains the sum of the two fractions.
