When you reduce a mixed number, the whole number does not change. It is the fraction that changes. For insance, if you want to reduce 5 and 3/6, you would simply keep the 5 and reduce the 3/6 to 1/2. The final outcome would be 5 and 1/2. 20 and 15/20 would reduce to 20 and 3/4. 17 and 10/12 would reduce to 17 and 5/6. And so on...
