What fraction of the rectangle is green? What decimal part of the rectangle is green? .6 They sound alike!!!
To write a decimal as a fraction, write the fraction as you would say the decimal 0.12345 tenths Hundredths Thousandths Ten-thousandths Hundred-thousandths
Say the decimal….Write it as a fraction <ul><li>.5 </li></ul><ul><li>.65 </li></ul><ul><li>.22 </li></ul><ul><li>.2 </li></ul><ul><li>.225 </li></ul>Notice….when you change a decimal to a fraction the denominator is always 10, 100, 1000 (powers of ten!)
Is that all there is? Of Course Not You have to simplify the fraction if possible
Write .6 as a fraction BUT SO .6 = Can be simplified to: .6 =
What about fractions to decimals? You can write a fraction as a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator…..the fraction symbol means division!
To make a decimal…do the division! .00 28 20 20 0 .75
One more thing……… When you divide, REMEMBER, add zeros to finish your division. AND 2 THINGS CAN HAPPEN
The division problem ends A Terminating decimal The division problem goes on forever…. Repeating decimal
Repeating Decimals A single digit might repeat…. .3333…. Or a group of digits might repeat… .275275275….
Show repeating decimals by placing a line over the digit or group of digits that repeats .33333…. Becomes .3 And .275275….becomes .275
Remember Whole numbers stay the same! Will be 1.4 1.2 will be Simplified to:
