### Adding and Subtracting Mixed Fractions

Any mistooks?

No. There aren't any.
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.
