Example Questions

Example Question #61 : Numbers And Operations

Example Question #63 : Numbers And Operations

What is the decimal equivalent of ?      Explanation:

Multiply the top and bottom of the fraction by a number that would make the denominator 100. In our case, this is 25.

The product of 4 and 25 is 100.

The product of 3 and 25 is 75.

Since 100 has 2 zeroes, write down 75 with the decimal point two spaces to the right: 0.75 Example Question #64 : Numbers And Operations

What is 0.21 as a fraction?      Explanation:

The number of digits after the decimal point in 0.21 is two. This means the denominator will be 1 followed by two zeroes: 100

Place the two digits after the decimal point above the 100, as the numerator: Example Question #65 : Numbers And Operations       Explanation:
