Example Question #2 : Decimals With Fractions
If , can equal which of the following?
None of the other answer choices are correct
Convert all of the fractions to decimals. Thus, x is contained within the range of 0.33 < x < 0.76. The answers choices become 1/4 = 0.25, 4/12 = 0.33, 2/5 = 0.4, and 5/16 = 0.3125, respectively. Therefore, the only answer which is within the desired range is 2/5.
