### How do you convert a mixed fraction into a decimal number?

To convert a mixed number into a decimal, first you must convert
the fraction part of the mixed number into decimal form. Do this by
dividing the numerator (the top number) by the denominator (the
bottom number). Then, place the whole number that was originally
part of the mixed number as the whole number for the decimal. For
example, let's convert this mixed number into a decimal: 51/4. 1/4
= 0.25 The whole number originally part of the mixed number, 51/4
is 5. Place 5 as the whole number for the decimal. Therefore, the
answer is 5.25.
