The fraction "1-1/2" from the print you shared (thank you for including a print sample) is a mixed number. To transcribe it in this situation, I would either follow standard mixed number rules and include a TN to make note of the hyphen that appears in print, or I would follow print exactly and permit the braille reader to make a judgment based on the same information that is available to the sighted reader.

Attached is a .BRF that represents two possible transcriptions of the print sample you shared (using Nemeth-EBAE).

Please see sections 63 [especially 63.b] and 64 of the Nemeth Code.
