Maths: Solving Maths Problems

I was working on converting fractions to decimals. I know from the problem that 8/25 is the fraction. I know that the problem is asking her to convert 8/25 into a decimal. I solved it by using multiplication and division.

  1. I need to found out what number to divide the denominator (25) to get to 100. 25 x 4 = 100. 4.
  2. Then I divide that number by the numerator (8) . 8 x 4 = 32.
  3. Then I place the decimal point on the numerator, to get the decimal. 0.32.

Answer: 0.32
