Write-72.775 as a mixed number

Divide 7 by 3, using integer division. Write the result (which must be an integer) as the whole number. Write the remainder as the numerator, over the number 3 which is the denominator.

You don't. You can only write numbers greater than one as a mixed number.

Usually, to find a mixed number answer, you divide 81 (in this case) by 3, and write the answer as the integer part of the mixed number, and the remainder over 3 as the fractional part of the mixed number. However, since 81 divided by 3 is 27, with no remainder, there is no reason to write it as a mixed number. It could be written as 27 and 0/3, but this is not generally the accepted way to write an answer to a division problem that does not involve a remainder.
