One third is equal to 0.33 decimal. One third is a fraction that is derived at dividing a whole number into three equal parts.
.33 repeating i believe
0.33333333333333 and so on.
Expressed as a mixed number, 1/3 + 5 = 5 1/3 or five and one third. Expressed as a decimal, this is equal to 5.3 recurring (that is, 5.3333..)
It is: 1/3 = 0.3333... repeating
Terminating decimal: 1.5 is exactly equal to 'one and one half'. It needs no more digits. Repeating decimal: 0.33333 is close to 'one third' but not equal. As more 3's are added on the end of it, it gets closer to 'one third'. By adding enough 3's you can get as close as you want to 'one third', but it can never be EXACTLY equal to one third.
When there is only one number after the decimal point
.333333333333333333333333333333333333 (it's repeating)
simplify it first..an equal signExpressed as a decimal number
Expressed as a decimal, 2 1/3 is equal to 2.3 recurring (that is, 2.3333...)
The third decimal place in this example is occupied by the number one: 00.001 (the one is in the thousandths place)
It is a decimal. It is in the tenths and is one third of 1.
