A mixed number is a number that has both a whole number part and a fractional part.
The fractional part is a proper fraction or a fraction that has a numerator that is smaller than the denominator.
Notice that the whole number part cannot be zero since zero is not included in the set of whole numbers.
2 1/3, 4 2/7, 6 1/2, 24 4/5, 3 8/9, 8 3/4, and 75 1/8
Suppose four people are sharing nineteen dollars. Since the money cannot be shared evenly between these four people, we need a mixed number to express the answer.
19/4 = (16 + 3)/4
19/4 = 16/4 + 3/4
19/4 = 4 + 3/4
4 + 3/4 is a mixed number.
We can write it without the plus sign as 4 3/4
