It is 12.5 mm. A fractional representation does not imply a change in the measurement units. If this is required then you need to specify the units into which the quantity is to be converted.

In order to convert from a mixed number to a fraction you need to multiply the units part by the denominator. In this case the units part is 4 and the denominator is 5. Multiply these to get 20. The next step is to add this on to the numerator we already have. 20+3 = 23. Thus 4 3/5 as a vulgar fraction is 23/5

What is a fraction in which the numerator and denominator represent the same amount but are in different units?

It is the denominator

A rate is a fraction that compares two quantities measured in different units. If the denominator of the fraction is 1 unit, the rate is called a unit rate.

Not all magnitudes in nature come in integer units.

When a mixed number (a whole number and a fraction) is written as a decimal, the decimal point divides the whole number and the fractional part. 12 and 75/100 = 12.75 a dot placed after the figure representing units in a decimal fraction.

10/1 units, presumably.

Yes, it is possible to purchase only one share of stock. Lower than one is not possible, so people can't buy fractional units. When people buy mutual funds, it is possible to buy fractional units.
