I'm not sure what you mean by "mixed fractions." A mixed number is a whole number with a fraction. You could convert that to an improper fraction and simplify it, but the result will be the same as if you just ignore the whole number and simplify the fraction. For example, 1 and 6/8 = 14/8 = 7/4 = 1 and 3/4. Ignoring the 1, 6/8 simplifies to 3/4. Just make sure to put the whole number back when you're done. If you don't know how to simplify a fraction, find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is already in its simplest form. If you don't know how to find a GCF, that question has been answered many times and should be easy to find.

You do the numerator divided by the denominator, then simplify the fractions if you can. (this is how you change a improper fraction to a mixed number, you cannot change a proper fraction to a mixed number)

They are useful in reducing fractions and to simplify radicals. They are useful in reducing fractions and to simplify radicals.

In math people simplify fractions because its easier to look at.

It is -86666/10000 which you can simplify if required.

It would've been better if you had some examples. There are infinite numbers of fractions

Find a common denominator, add the numerators, simplify if possible.

You do the numerator divided by the denominator, then simplify the fractions if you can. (this is how you change a improper fraction to a mixed number, you cannot change a proper fraction to a mixed number)

Convert the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator. In actually adding mixed numbers, it is easier to convert the mixed numbers into improper (top heavy) fractions, do the addition, simplify the resulting fraction and convert any resulting improper fraction back into a mixed number.

You can either simplify then add or add then simplify your answer

you can't add nor subtract mixed fractions so you need to turn it into a fraction, if you wanna turn a mixed fraction into a fraction you need to multiply the whole number by the denominator, then add the numerator, then you can multiply normally (make sure you simplify and turn it into a mixed fraction your answer)

You can simplify fractions, sometimes, but you can never simplify whole numbers.

no

Yes, mixed fractions are rational

because when we simplify fractions it will give you the correct answer and that is the rule.
