A mixed number is just another way of expressing a fractional number. This video shows two methods by which two mixed numbers may be added. The first method involves separating the whole number and the fractional parts of both the numbers and then adding both the parts separately to get a fraction and a whole number as results. Finally, the results so obtained are combined to form a mixed number, which is the result obtained upon addition. The second method consists of converting the mixed numbers into fractions and then adding both of them to get the result. The result is then converted into a mixed number.
