- what if it is a problem like 45.93(12 votes)
- 45 is a whole number so we put it aside. Think about .93, if you watched the video then it is obviously 93/100. Now, we join the whole number together with the decimal number which thus becomes: 45 93/100 (
*locate the whole number left to the fraction*)(12 votes)

- how do i do 7/13(9 votes)
- To convert fraction into decimals use a calculator. It is for many people to hard to figure out that 1/13 equals 0.0769... and multiply that by 7 to get roughly 0.54...(11 votes)

- Express 0.630.630 as a fraction how do I do that?(5 votes)
- Hi what is 13/25 as a decimal(5 votes)
- To solve this we must figure out how many times 25 can go into 13.
**13 divided by 25**

25 can't go into 13, so we add a 0.

25 can't go into 130, so we add another 0.

25**can**go into 13000*52 times*, so we found out answer.

Before we jump for joy we need to remember that we added 2 zeros after the decimal point, so we need to now divide our answer by 10 twice (aka move the decimal point twice to the left). This gives us our final answer of 0.52.

## Video transcript

Let's see if we can
write 0.36 as a fraction. There are several
ways of doing it. The way I like to do it
is to say, well, 0.36, this is the same thing
as 36 hundredths. Or one way to think
about it is this is in the hundredths place. This is in the
tens place, or you could view this
as 30 hundredths. You could view this as 3
tens, or 30 hundredths. So we could say that this is
the same thing as 36 hundredths, or this is equal to 36/100. And we've already
expressed it as a fraction, but now we could
actually simplify it because both 36 and 100
have some common factors. They're both divisible
by, well, looks like they're both
divisible by 4. So if we could
divide the numerator by 4 and the
denominator by 4, we're doing the same thing to both. So we're not changing the
value of the fraction. 36 divided by 4 is 9, and
then 100 divided by 4 is 25. And now these two
characters don't seem to share any
other common factors. And so we've written
it in simplified form, and we're done.
