i guess my question is regarding to shortcuts. dw:1346824704254:dw 6 and a half. what we actually mean without the shortcuts is dw:1346824730663:dw But if we have dw:1346824746385:dw Do we mean 6 and a half as the shortcut? But dw:1346824783677:dw

when you have a negative it is ambiguous. I always just assume the whole number part is negative and so is the fraction part negative.

\[6 \frac{1}{2}=\left(6+\frac{1}{2}\right)=\left(\frac{13}{2}\right)=(6.5)=6.5 \]
