Enter the total distance and the fraction of the distance into the Fractional Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Fractional Distance. 

Fractional Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Fractional Distance. 

Df = TD * F
  • Where Df is the Fractional Distance
  • TD is the total distance 
  • F is the fraction of the distance 

To calculate the fractional distance, multiply the total distance by the fraction.

How to Calculate Fractional Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Fractional Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total distance.
    • The total distance is given as: 167.
  2. Next, determine the fraction of the distance.
    • The fraction of the distance is provided as: 3/5.
  3. Finally, calculate the Fractional Distance using the equation above: 

Df = TD * F

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Df = 167 * 3/5 = 100.2

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total distance = 180

fraction of the distance = 4/5

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
