  1. Change the mixed number into an improper fraction:

    8 * 6 + 3 = 51/6

    Divide the numerator by the denominator to get it in decimal notation.

    51/6 = 8.5

  3. Oh darn it, I forgot about simplification (still get a correct answer, but you work with larger numbers if you don't simplify).
