An example of a mix number would be
11/5
What do you think they are? 
11/5 is NOT a mixed number. It is a fraction.
2 1/5 is a mixed number that equals 11/5. 
Your right Ms. Sue. I apologize for the incorrect answer.

11/5 is an improper fraction, once you divide it, it will become a mixed number like MS.Sue said, 2 1/5
