You turn the decimal into a fraction. Then you can find the equivalent fraction.
It means that you find a decimal number that has the same value as the fraction - or often a value that is close, since most fractions cannot be expressed exactly with a terminating decimal. Just divide the numerator by the denominator, to get an equivalent decimal.
Divide the denominator into the numerator.
Ella say's that she can find decimal equivalent for lots. Of fractions be cause she knows that the decimal equivalent for 1/5 is 0.2. Name three fractions for which Ella could find the decimal equivalent. Explain how Ella would use 1\5 to find the decimal for each fraction
It is a requirement to find a decimal representation which has only a finite number of digits after the decimal point.
3.1 is a rational number because it is a terminating decimal that can be expressed as an improper fraction in the form of 31/10
Write the fraction as a decimal ... do the long division, if you have to, to find the decimal equivalent. Once you have the decimal, multiply it by 100 ... same as moving the decimal point two places to the right ... and you have the percent.
Using ordinary long division, divide the fraction's numerator by its denominator.
Starting with one of fraction, percent or decimal, find an equivalent value in one of the other ways of expressing numbers.
you divide the numerator (number on top) by the denominator (number in the bottom)
0.9 is a fraction. It is a fraction in decimal form rather than in the form of a ratio. However, that does not stop it being a fraction. Its equivalent, in rational form, is 9/10.
