    Explanation
    A mixed number can be expressed as an improper fraction by converting the whole number part into a fraction and adding it to the fractional part. An improper fraction is a rational number because it can be represented as the ratio of two integers, where the numerator and denominator are both integers. Therefore, since a mixed number can be expressed as an improper fraction, it is also a rational number.
