1 & 1/2

yes 1.5 +.5 = 2 * * * * * No. 0.5 is NOT a mixed number. But 3.5 + (-1.5) = 2

Yes it can. Consider the numbers 31/2 and negative 11/2. Their sum is 2. So the question is misguided.

4 and 2/10 + 3 and 3/10

No. A positive mixed number must be bigger than one: so each of them must be of the form one-and-some-more. Therefore, their sum must be two and the sum of two some-more bits, which must be more than 2.

The sum of two positive mixed numbers can not equal two because all positive mixed numbers are greater then one.no two can be, 1 1/2 and 1/2

The question is misguided because, in fact, two mixed numbers can be added to equal 2. For example: 31/2 and (-11/2), when added together, give 2. There is no reason to restrict mixed numbers to positive mixed numbers!

Yes. Mixed numbers can be negative. -11/2 + 31/2 = 2

There is only one mixed number equal to 7.5 . It is 71/2 .

1 & 1/2

yes 1.5 +.5 = 2 * * * * * No. 0.5 is NOT a mixed number. But 3.5 + (-1.5) = 2

no

They can be: 1 and 1/2 plus 1 and 1/2 = 3

Sometimes as for example 4 and 1/2 minus 2 and 1/2 = 2

No. Each mixed number is made of a whole number and a fraction. When you add them, you have the sum of two whole numbers and two fractions. Since each whole number must be at least ' 1 ', the sum of two whole numbers must be at least ' 2 ', and the two fractions will always make it more than ' 2 '.

no 2 is a prime number
