## Multiple Fractions Average and Formula

**Average of Multiple Fractions** is a basic arithmetic operation used to find the average between two or more fractions with same or different (equal or unlike) denominators, positive or negative fractions, regular or irregular fractions, mixed numbers and whole numbers. The below formula is the mathematical representation for average of multiple fractions with like or unlike denominators, positive or negative fractions or mixed or whole numbers.

## How to Find the Average of Two or More Fractions

The average of fractions is the sum of all fractions divided by the count of total number of fractional numbers. Any whole number in the group of fractions considered as a fraction with denominator 1. For fractions with same or equal denominators, the sum is the simplified fraction of sum of numerators divided by the common denominators, whereas, for fractions with unlike, unequal or different denominators, the LCM (least common multiple) of all denominators must be multiplied with both numerators and denominators of each fractions to bring the common denominator to perform the addition between them. By using this tool and associated information, users may refer the below solved examples with step by step calculation to learn how to find the average of two, three or more fraction numbers with same or different denominators, or the average of regular, irregular, positive or negative fractions and whole numbers. user may found the answers for the following queries
