Only if you include negatives. The sum of 3 and 1/2 + -1 and 1/2

### How do you find the sum of two mixed numbers?

To find the sum of two mixed numbers, turn the mixed numbers
into improper fractions (multiply the base with the denominator and
add the numerator), then add the two fractions. To add the two
fractions, find the LCD (lowest common denominator) and add the two
numerators, but leave the denominators the same.
