By a mixed number if you mean say 1 1/4 .

So to convert 1 1/4 to a decimal, the coefficient '1' remains as '1'.

We then take '1/4' This means one divided by '4'.

You will say cannot be done, but oh!!! yes it can .

Set up your division bracket.

4)1.0000

Note the decimal point and the 'string of zeroes'.

We say 4 divided into '1' won't go. So zero in the answer , then carry the decimal point into the answer. With a remainder of '1'

4)10.000 = 0.

The remainder of '1' is carried onto the first decimal zero so its reads '10'. We say 4 divided into '10' will go, answer is '2' (8) and a remainder of '2' So zero in the answer , then carry the decimal point into the answer. With a remainder of '2

So

4)100.0 = 0.2...'

The remainder '2' is carried on to the second decimal , so it reads '20'

We say 4 divided into '20' will go, answer is '5' (20) and NO remainder.

Since there is no remainder the division is complete.

Hence

4)100.0 = 0.25

Add the 0.25 to the coefficient '1' so we have 1.25 = 1 1/4

0.06 is a decimal number. Also, since its magnitude is less than 1, there is no sensible way of representing it as a 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.
