In braille a whole number is joined to a fraction by a hyphen. The number sign is not repeated before the fraction. A mixed number cannot be divided between braille lines. Example:

2½

When a whole number is shown separated from a fraction by a space (as in stock quotations), it is brailled in the same way as a mixed number with a hyphen substituted for the space. Do not divide this unit between braille lines. Example:

16 3/8
