To clarify a mixed number is made up of a whole number (whole numbers have no fractional or decimal part) and a proper fraction part (a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator (the bottom number). In this case the whole number value is 1 and the proper fraction value is 2/10.

##### Is 1.2 a terminating, recurring or an irrational decimal?

Terminating decimals have a limited number of digits after the decimal point.

Example: 3877.29 = 3877 29/100

Recurring decimals have one or more repeating numbers after the decimal point which continue on infinitely.

Example: 3004.3333 = 3004 3333/10000 = 333/1000 = 33/100 = 1/3 (rounded)

Irrational decimals go on forever and never form a repeating pattern. This type of decimal cannot be expressed as a fraction.

Example: 0.559922991.....
