2 + 3/8 change 2 to 8ths 16/8 ( which is another form of 2 ) 16/8 + 3/8 = 19/8 or 2 and 3/8 as a mixed number

Change them into improper fractions. Invert the second fraction and multiply them together. Reduce if necessary.

To change 18 over 9 to a mixed number, divide the numerator (18) by the denominator (9). The result is 2, which becomes the whole number part of the mixed number. The remainder after dividing is 0, so there are no fractional parts. The mixed number is 2.

A whole number could be converted to a mixed number, but that might only be useful when subtracting a mixed number from a whole number. To change a whole number to a mixed number, simply take one away from the whole number and then change the 1 to a fraction that is equivalent to 1 (numerator and denominator are the same). For example 5 - 2 1/4. To subtract, you might want to change the 5 to 4 4/4. Then, you can subtract 1/4 from 4/4 to get 3/4 and 2 from 4 to get 2. The answer is 2 3/4.
