1 & 1/2

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

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

4 and 2/10 + 3 and 3/10

1.5 + 0.5 = 2

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

The question is misguided because, in fact, two mixed numbers can be added to equal 2. For example: 31/2 and (-11/2), when added together, give 2. There is no reason to restrict mixed numbers to positive mixed numbers!

Yes. Mixed numbers can be negative. -11/2 + 31/2 = 2

There is only one mixed number equal to 7.5 . It is 71/2 .

no

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

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

no 2 is a prime number
