In math, a decimal mixed number is a number that is made up of a whole number and a decimal fraction.
For example, 6.5 is a decimal mixed number. Take a look at the figure below to see how we broke down 6.5 into a whole number and a decimal fraction.
Notice that 5 / 10 = 0.5 so that 6.5 = 6 + 5 / 10 = 6 + 0.5
1. 8.06 = 8 + 6 / 100 = 8 + 0.06
8 is the whole number and 6 / 100 or 0.06 is the decimal fraction
2. 15.2 = 15 + 2 / 10 = 15 + 0.2
15 is the whole number and 2 / 10 or 0.2 is the decimal fraction
3. 4.009 = 4 + 9 / 1000 = 4 + 0.009
4 is the whole number and 9 / 1000 or 0.009 is the decimal fraction
