Can a proper fraction be added to a mixed fraction

Report as

A proper fraction can be added to a mixed fraction. This can be done by first changing the mixed fraction into a proper fraction then adding the two. You can also change both fractions into decimals added them, and then convert them back to fractions.

Yes. (e.g 1/2+ 4/2 = 5/2)

Consider the following:
1 1/2 + 1/2 = ?
Can you add these?
If so, then you should have your answer.
If not, then you might be too young to be on this site.
