- when you say to round it up or down and you do it in a test and they want a specific answer will they mark your answer wrong(44 votes)
- it depends. mostly they do want it pacific but in some cases it's fine. go with your gut or watch more videos. still don't know? ask a parent.(5 votes)

- im confused because i was doing the same division as him and i got 4 with a repeating bar is that right(9 votes)
- Can't you just do 11/25=44/100=0.44(7 votes)
- thank you that is my b-day(5 votes)
- So, i get that you have to divide the numerator by the denominator to get a decimal, but does it work the same with an improper fraction.(3 votes)

becuse he should be a youtober(3 votes) - What if division doesn't work for you? Would there be a simpler way to work problems like these?(3 votes)
- that would be great!(1 vote)

- can decimals take place in the thosounds place(3 votes)
- Yes, decimals CAN take place in the thousandths. But if you're asking about the thousands as in on the left side of the point, then no. EX: 0.000 or EX: 0000.0(0 votes)

The strategy is to do denominator (bottom number) divided by numerator (top number),

Example: what is 4/7 as a decimal?

7 divided by 4 does not work, so a 0 is added to the four.

7 divided by 40 is 5, so our current answer is 0.5. You typically go to 2 decimal places, so we do this again.

7 does not go in to 5, so we add a 0 to make the 5 a 50.

7 divided by 50 is 7, so that makes our final answer of 4/7 as a decimal, 0.57.

- How oh you convert mixed number fractions(2 votes)
- Just take away the whole number then divide the fraction , then when you get the answer add the whole number.

Example:

1 3/4.

Divide 3/4 = .75

Add 1 =. 1.75(1 vote)

Let's see if we can write
the fraction 11 over 25, or we could call
11/25, to see if we can write that as a decimal. And we're going to round it to
the nearest thousandths place. And so another way of
viewing this is 11 over 25, this is the same thing
as 11 divided by 25. So we can literally divide 25
into 11, and whatever we get, that is going to be the decimal
representation of 11/25. And since we're going
to go into the places less than the ones
place, we're going to go into the tenths
place, the hundredths place, and the thousandths place,
let's add some zeroes to this 11 right over here
after the decimal, and now let's start to divide. 25 doesn't go into 1. 25 doesn't go into 11. 25 does go into 110. So 25 goes into 110 four times. 4 times 25 is 100. So it goes into it four times. Let's keep the decimal up here. So we'll write 0.4. 4 times 25 is 100. And now we can subtract
110 minus 100 is 10. And now we can bring
down another 0. 25 goes into 100
exactly four times. 4 times 25 is 100, and then
you subtract, and you get 0. So we actually didn't even
have to round this one. This fraction is exactly 0.44.
