What is a mixed number?A mixed number is an integer and fraction acb whose value equals the sum of that integer and fraction. For example, we write two and four-fifths as 254. Its value is: 254=2+54=510+54=514. The mixed number is the exception - the missing operand between a whole number and a fraction is not multiplication but an addition: 254=2⋅ 54. A negative mixed number - the minus sign also applies to the fractional −254=−(254)=−(2+54)=−514. A mixed number is sometimes called a mixed fraction. Usually, a mixed number contains a natural number and a proper fraction, and its value is an improper fraction, that is, one where the numerator is greater than the denominator.
How do I imagine a mixed number?We can imagine mixed numbers in the example of cakes. We have three cakes, and we have divided each into five parts. We thus obtained 3 * 5 = 15 pieces of cake. One-piece when we eat, there are 14 pieces left, which is 254 of cake. When we eat two pieces, 253 of cake remains.
