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

There is no answer because there are no mixed #.

I don't think you cant sum numbers. You can add numbers to get the sum.

No.

1 1/4 and 1 3/4

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

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

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

it can be any value mixed numbers can and usually are translated into regular numbers

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.

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 '.

yes

Yes

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

Find the sum of two mixed numbers by applying the procedure for adding mixed numbers, Solve a real-world problem by subtracting mixed numbers.

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.

Not unless at least one of the numbers is zero.
