22 and 2/4 = $$22 + \frac{2}{4} = \frac{88}{4} + \frac{2}{4} = \frac{90}{4} = \frac{45*2}{2*2} = \frac{45}{2}$$

so would it be 45 and 1/7 or 45 1/6

Uh.. no. $$\frac{45}{2}$$ = 22 and 1/2. I didn't realize you wanted it in compound form. Otherwise I woulda just reduced the 2/4 to 1/2 and called it a day.
