You EITHER, change them BOTH to decimals, OR you change them BOTH to vulgar (common) FRACTIONS EXAMPLE 2.3 X1&2/3 equals 2&3/10 X 1&2/3 equals 23/10 X 5/3 etc OR 2.3 X 1.66 equals etc.

A strong working understanding of fractions and decimals is essential for nurses. They must be familiar enough with fractions and decimals to quickly and accurately divide, multiply, add and subtract dosages as well as convert fractions to decimals and vice versa.
