- 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(6 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)

- 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)
- I still don't get it... Can someone really help me? Thank you so much!(2 votes)
- answer was from :
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.

- Just take away the whole number then divide the fraction , then when you get the answer add the whole number.
Divide 3/4 = .75

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.
