# How to Write a Decimal as a Mixed Number?

A decimal number with a whole part can be written as a mixed number.

## Answer: To write the decimal number as a mixed number leave the whole part unchanged and convert the decimal part to a fraction.

Let us see the steps required to be followed for converting decimal to a mixed number.

**Explanation:**

Suppose 1.20 is the decimal number required to be converted to a mixed number.

Let us keep the whole part unchanged, which is 1

Now we convert the decimal part to a fraction gives the result 20/100 = 1/5

Hence we left the whole part unchanged and converted only the decimal part to a fraction.

Hence the answer after converting to a mixed fraction is 1 1/5
