No.

The sum of two positive mixed numbers can not equal two because all positive mixed numbers are greater then one.no two can be, 1 1/2 and 1/2

There is only one example where the sum of two mixed numbers can be equal to two. 1/1 + 1/1 All other combinations of mixed numbers will be greater than two.

1 1/4 and 1 3/4

No. Each mixed number is made of a whole number and a fraction. When you add them, you have the sum of two whole numbers and two fractions. Since each whole number must be at least ' 1 ', the sum of two whole numbers must be at least ' 2 ', and the two fractions will always make it more than ' 2 '.

When the sum of the negatives is an integer is when the sum is a whole number

The sum of two numbers - whether they are negative or not, whether they are mixed numbers or not - is a single number. So they cannot be integers.

Yes

yes 1.5 +.5 = 2 * * * * * No. 0.5 is NOT a mixed number. But 3.5 + (-1.5) = 2

yes

The two equal numbers that have the sum of 54 are 27 and 27.

Yes

3.75 and 3.75

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

The sum of the two mixed numbers 3 1/3 and 2 2/3 is 6.

No. A positive mixed number must be bigger than one: so each of them must be of the form one-and-some-more. Therefore, their sum must be two and the sum of two some-more bits, which must be more than 2.

Only if you include negative numbers. If you add 3 and1/2 to -1 and 1/2, you get 2.

Not unless at least one of the numbers is zero.

2 and 1

1.5 + 0.5 = 2

Yes

21

Yes it can. Consider the numbers 31/2 and negative 11/2. Their sum is 2. So the question is misguided.

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.
