# How to read mixed fractions? [closed]

Is it correct to read mixed fraction 35 466/635 as ' thirty five and four hundred sixty six over six hundred thirty five'? I know we can read it as thirty five and four hundred sixty six six hundred thirty fifths. But practically it is not possible. Thank you.

• @Jason Bassford Then how do English speakers read mixed fractions? For example, when teaching students mixed fractions, how to read them? Nov 22, 2018 at 19:41
• @ramanujan Both of those are acceptable ways to read any fraction. It's just personal preference. Nov 22, 2018 at 21:14
• @ramanujan For example, I can read 1/4 and say one quarter, a quarter, a fourth, or one fourth. There isn't only one correct way of vocalizing the fraction. Nov 22, 2018 at 21:29
• @ramanujan My point is that just like regular fractions, mixed fractions can be read in multiple ways. It can even be converted into a decimal for ease (35.73)—assuming somebody can do that in their head. Nov 23, 2018 at 3:29
