A mixed number is a whole number  and a fraction

32.50 includes a decimal fraction. The whole number is 32 and the decimal fraction is `50/100` when it is converted.

= `32 50/100`

Now simplify the `50/100` by dividing by 50.

=`32 1/2`

We need to write 32.50 as a mixed number in simplest form.

A mixed number is simply a whole number with a fraction part tacked on to the end. 

32 is already whole so we will leave it alone. 

We need to convert .5 to a fraction which is 1/2

So 32.5 is simply 32 and 1/2
