Best Answer

As it is, 85.5 is a mixed number.

85.5 = 85 1/2

To convert said number into a fraction multiply the whole number (85) by the divisor (2).

You will get 170.

Add that product to the dividend (1).

You will get 171.

Finally, place that sum over the original divisor (2).

Thus, 85.5 as a fraction is: 171/2
