Thought I would make a special page on Adding and Subtracting Mixed Fractions

Any mistooks?

No. There aren't any.

The page is nicely made.

Since the operations of Multiplication and Division would also involve the same method, that is, conversion of a mixed fraction into an improper fraction, this could've been mentioned at the end of the page.

Character is who you are when no one is looking.

I guess "Multiplication and Division of mixed fractions" will need to be another topic one day, then

You could mention that another way of adding/subtracting mixed fractions is to add/subtract the whole numbers and the fractions separately.
