Describe two methods for converting a mixed number into a decimal

Answered by Biya

R example: 6 1/2 = 13/2 = 6.5
For the first example, six and a half is equal to thirteen halves, which
is then equal to six point five. To do this, the rule to turn a mix
number into a fraction is by multiplying the 2 with the 6 and then add
the answer to 1, which gives 13/2 (Remember to always give the same
denominator). Finally, thirteenth halves is equal to six point five
(because when you divide 13 by 2, you get 6 and one left over. To
continue dividing, add a 0 , and so 10 goes into 2 is five. so the
decimal is 6.5
