Change the mixed numbers into improper fractions and carry out the calculations accordingly

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