You should be familiar with long division involving decimals

To convert a decimal to a fraction first put the decimal over 1 as to divide the decimal by 1. Next multiply the top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. Finally simplify the fraction.

To convert a decimal into a fraction, divide the number - without the decimal point - by 10 raised to the power given by the number of digits after the decimal point. For example, 0.0235 = 235/10000 Then simplify. Converting to a percentage is simpler from the decimal itself. Moe the decimal point two places to the left and add a percentage sign. SO, 0.0235 = 2.35%

Yes a whole number is a number without a fraction or a decimal point.

The line in a fraction can be read as "divided by." Do the division. Then multiply that result by 100. 3/4 = three divided by four = 0.75 = 75%

You write the decimal in the numerator, WITHOUT the decimal point. In the denominator, you write a "1", followed by as many zeros as there are digits after the decimal point in the original number. Finally, simplify the fraction if it can be simplified.For example: to convert 2.15 into a fraction, you write this as 215/100, then simplify.

Count the digits to the right of the decimal and divide the digits number, without a decimal, by 1 with (2 + number of digits right of decimal) zeros. So. 490.4% = 4904/100 = 4.904

Of course! Without decimals, you couldn't calculate percentages or fractions. Decimals allow you to break a number up. A decimal is basically a fraction, and when you calculate fraction adding, subtraction, multiplication, and division, sometimes it is easier to calculate a fraction by first changing it to a decimal instead.

Your fraction needs a numerator and a denominator. The numerator is the decimal number without the decimal point ie 348. There are two digits after the decimal place in your decimal number. So, your denominator is 1 followed by the same number of zeros. 1 followed by 2 zeros is 100. So the fraction is 348/100 The next step is to reduce this fraction to its lowest form: 348/100 = 87/25

To find 87.5% of a fraction or mixed number, you first convert the fraction or mixed number into a whole number with or without a decimal (ex. 3/4=.75; 1 3/8=1.375). Next, you take 87.5% and convert it into a decimal (for multiplication. To do this, you simply move the decimal point (.) two paces to the left (87.5=.875) and the opposite when converting a decimal to a percent. Next, you multiply .875 by whatever the converted fraction or mixed number came out as. Now you have your answer. Hope this helps.

A number without a decimal would be a number without a fraction - hence it would be a "whole number".
