# Fraction Calculator

This tool calculates fractions, whether they are simple, mixed (e.g., 2 1/3), or large fractions. Enter your expression, use the common operators, and get the simplified result and its approximation.

## How to Use This Tool

• Order of Operations: Multiplications and divisions are processed before additions and subtractions.
• Parentheses: Use parentheses to change the order of operations, for instance "(1+2)×3" vs. "1+2×3".
• Exponentiation: Use '^' to raise to a power, for example "3^2".
