To find the mixed number you need to first divide to find the quotient and remainder. So 71 over 8 has a quotient of 8 and remainder 7. So the general way of writing a mixed number is

dividend over divisor = quotient (remainder over divisor)

dividend/divisor = quotient remainder/divisor)

So 71 over 8 = 8 7/8.
