Change decimal to mixed number?

A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. A decimal representation does not require a decimal point. So provided the number is a decimal fraction, it can be represented as a mixed number. If it is a decimal integer then it is not a mixed number and it makes no sense to try to represent it as one.
