Best Answer

No.

The mixed number 21/2, for example, is greater than the whole number 2, but smaller than the whole number 3.

In fact, given any mixed number (which does have a fractional part), it is always possible to find a pair of consecutive whole numbers such that the mixed number is between them.

what is 2+@

Not always as for example 4 is greater than 3 and 3/4

NO because 1 and 1\2 is greater than 1 but less than 2. And 2 is a whole number.

Convert the mixed number to a decimal.

Yes, yes it is. Because a mixed number must have a whole number in it. Therefore, being multiplied only makes it bigger.

TRUE. A proper fraction is always less than 1 and a mixed number is always greater than 1

NO because 1 and 1\2 is greater than 1 but less than 2. And 2 is a whole number.

Only if the fraction is improper (greater than one).

no. lets use 10,000,000,000,000, which is a whole number, and 1 1/2, which is a mixed number. all a mixed number is is a mix of fractions and whole numbers,

A mixed number must have an integer part (and a fractional part). Consequently, a mixed number must be greater than one. The reciprocal of a number greater than one is less than one (and conversely) since the two, when multiplied together, make 1.

Mixed numbers are greater than proper fractions.

Convert the mixed number to a decimal.

Sure, you can write it that way. But for the final result, you should always convert it to a mixed number in standard form, or to an improper fraction.
