This means that you should write your answer using fractional notation as opposed to decimal notation. For example, you would write 1/4 instead of .25 .
It is called a [decimal] fraction.
Decimal notation is.
6.03 IS expressed using decimal form!
................................................................._0.384333 using the bar notation = 0.3843(the bar should be placed above the repeated decimal. In this case, it should be above the 2nd 3 from the decimal point.
Some common tools used to represent decimal values include: Decimal notation: This is the most common and widely used way to represent decimal values, using a decimal point followed by digits from 0-9. Fraction notation: Decimal values can also be represented as fractions, where the numerator is the decimal value and the denominator is a power of 10. Scientific notation: Decimal values can be represented in scientific notation, where a number between 1 and 10 is multiplied by a power of 10. This is particularly useful for very large or very small decimal values.
if you r using division to write a fraction as a decimal how do u know when to stop dividing
To convert a fraction to a decimal, you divide the numerator by the denominator - on a calculator, or using long division.
All irrational numbers are approximations. Thus PI and the decimal notation for one third (1/3) are both approximations. Note that the fraction 1/3 is not an approximation, it is precise, but it is not possible to notate precisely using decimal notation because it extends into infinity (0.3333333333...).
