1 & 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

They can be: 1 and 1/2 plus 1 and 1/2 = 3

7 1/2

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

Sometimes as for example 4 and 1/2 minus 2 and 1/2 = 2

because a mixed number is a number inbetween two whole numbers, such as 1 1/2 is also 1.5 or 3/2

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

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 '.
