Also, in the title to the question you wrote 119 2\7, by which I'll assume you meant 119 2/7. But that means 119+2/7, not 119*2/7, which is what you meant in the description. (* means multiply)

This is why in higher level math mixed fractions are almost NEVER used; they're too prone to misinterpretation. It's the only place in math where an unspecified arithmetic operator does not mean multiply. Improper fractions are preferred. If you have to write a mixed number write it with a + between the numbers, e.g., 119+2/7.

## Comments

Backward slash, \, denotes Integer Division where the remainder is discarded.

E.g., 10/3 = 3 + 1/3; BUT 10\3 = 3.
