Denominate numbers are numbers with units of measure attached to them.
Examples: 8 ml, 2 inches, 7/8 m
Mixed denominate numbers are numbers with two or more related units
attached to them. Example 8 mm 9 cm, 4 mile 56 yards
Numbers without units of measure attached are called abstract numbers.
Examples: 3/7, 56, 4 6/7
