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

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

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

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

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

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

No.

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 '.

Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2 equals 2.

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

2 and 1

No

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.
