It is a negative mixed fraction or improper fraction, a rational number, a real number.

which mixed number or improper fraction is closest to the decimal 5.27?

To subtract an improper fraction from a whole number, turn the whole number into a fraction with the same denominator as the improper fraction. Then minus. All whole numbers actually have a "1" as a denominator, we just don't write it (it's assumed.) E.g 10 = (10/1) 20 = (20/1) etc... to change the denominator to the same as the improper fraction, multiply the whole number (that is now a fraction over "1") by the denominator of the improper fraction. E.g Let the improper fraction be 17/4, and your real number be 20. From above, we know that 20 is the same as "20/1", with "1" as the denominator. You want this "1" to be "4", so multiply the real number by "4/4" (which is essentially multiplying by 1, so doesn't mess up how big the fraction is) 20/1 x 4/4 = 80/4. Now the denominators of both fractions are the same, you can minus the improper fraction from the whole number. i.e 80/4 - 17/4 = 63/4 Which is actually 15 3/4 .

A fraction is just a number. It's as real as any whole number (or decimal).

Some real numbers can be expressed as a rational fraction.

A real number is a rational number that can be expressed as a fraction whereas an irrational number can not be expressed as a fraction

It is a prime number because it has only two factors which are itself and one. It is a rational number because it can be expressed as an improper fraction as 19/1 It can be expressed as a decimal in the form of 19.0

0.1 is a real number and 1/10 is a fraction. It is a proper fraction.

Any number that can be made into a fraction is called a rational number, which also means it is a real number.

Any real number can be the denominator in a fraction. A fraction is a way of expressing one number (the numerator, the "top" number in a fraction) by another (the denominator, "bottom number.") So it is possible to have a denominator of 100.

Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction. Not all real numbers are rational.

No, not all real numbers. Rational numbers are numbers that can be written as a fraction. Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction.

it is a real fraction of time

It can be 82/1 or 164/2 or 246/3 or 328/5 and so on............Just multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number [any real number except zero(because it will become undefined{infinity} when a number other than zero is divided by zero).]

0.5 is related to a fraction making it a rational number.

Yes, but it can't be expressed as a fraction.

Some real numbers can be expressed as a fraction, others cannot. Those that can be are called rational, and those that can't be are called irrational.

yes, a fraction IS composed of numbers AND it is PART of a number, so it makes it a number.========================Yes, consider 1/2, this is a fraction (a half) but it is the same as 0.5 which is a real number.
