# What does mixed group mean?

## How to square a mixed faction A mixed fraction expresses the combination of an integer (whole number) and a fraction. For example, 3 2/3 is a mixed fraction. Squaring a number means multiplying it yourself; for example 3 ^ 2 = 3 * 3 = 9.

Mixed fractions are often used in regular language. For example, if you asked a child how old they are, they could say "five and a half" which would be written 5 1/2. He is unlikely to say "5.5", "66 months", or "11 halves".

### Convert the mixed Fraction in a wrong faction

Find the denominator of the fraction. For example, in the mixed fraction, 5 2/3, 3 is the denominator.

Multiply the integer part by the denominator found in step 1. In the example 5 * 3 = 15.

Find the numerator of the fraction. In 5 2/3, 2 is the numerator.

Add the result in step 2 to the result in step 3. In the example 15 + 2 = 17.

Write a fraction with the denominator from step 1 and the result from step 4 as the numerator. In the example you would write "17/3".

### Place the faction

Place the numerator of the fraction in section 1. In the example 17 * 17 = 289.

Place the denominator of the fraction in section 1. In the example 3 * 3 = 9.

Write a fraction using the numerator from step 1 and the denominator from step 2. In the example, you would write "289/9".

### Convert back to a mixed faction

Divide the numerator of the fraction in Section 2 by its denominator and write the result as a quotient and remainder. In the example, 289/9 = 32 with a remainder of 1.

Write the whole number of the result in step 1. In the example you would write "32". This is the numerator of the mixed group's result.

Write a fraction with the remainder from step 1 as the numerator and the denominator from the fraction in section 2 as the denominator. In this example you would write "1/9".

Write the result of step 2 and then step 3. This is the result of the mixed fraction, 32 1/9.
