How do you write 2.15 1/2 in expanded form. Our topic is transforming fractions in decimal form... but what is the fraction 1/2 doing there?

1. well, 15 1/2 = 15.5
So I'd guess 2.155

but that's certainly an unusual way to express a value.

In fact, I'd guess it's a typo. I've never seen a mixture of decimal and fraction like that.
