A mixed number is a number followed by a proper fraction. A proper fraction is a fraction where the numerator is smaller than the denominator. Ex:$3\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }=3.5$

3. anonymous

no that isn't it

4. anonymous

That is an example

the easiest way to convert to this is to think about what .55 is as a decimal, This is fifty-five hundredths or 55/100. Now you have$57\frac{ 55 }{ 100 }$I'm going to leave you responsible for simplifying that fraction. That will be your final answer.

7. anonymous
