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 3 and the proper fraction value is 0042/10000.Enter a Decimal Value:
