0.28 is equal to 28/100. sense 8 is in the hundreds place.

Then you simply simplify the answer! (If it can be simplified)

28/100 = 14/50 because 28 divided by 2 is 14, and 100 divided by 2 = 50.

14/50 = 7/25 beause 14 divided by 2 = 7, and 50 divided by 2 = 25.

7 and 25 don't have anything in common, so 7/25 is as simple as it gets.

0.28 = 7/25, or 28/100.(6 votes)

527/1000

because the numbers to the right of the decimal reach the thousandths place, the number to the right of the decimal is over 1000(10 votes)

The fraction 8/10 is 0.8 as a decimal because you divide 8 by 10. Hope that helps!

A

**number**is simply something representing*how much*of something we have.There are different ways of writing numbers, and we give different names to different things.

A fraction is a number written as a part-to-whole relationship, with a numerator (top part) and a denominator (bottom part).

A decimal is written in our standard base-10 number style, with numbers after the decimal representing fractions of the whole.If you have a rational decimal that doesn't go on for ever, then the easiest way to solve for it is by multiplying by 10 in the denominator and numerator until we get a whole number in the numerator.

Enough talk, let's get through some examples!

The decimal 0.8 can be written as 0.8/1 because anything divided by 1 is equal to itself.

Step 1: 0.8 / 1

Step 2: 0.8 = 0.8/1 = (0.8 * 10) / (1 * 10) // we can multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number and the value of our fraction won't change

Step 3: 0.8 = 0.8/1 = (0.8 * 10) = (1 * 10) = 8/10 // multiply out

Step 4: 8/10 = 4/5 // simplify fractionSo, how can we test that these numbers are the same? Well we can divide them of course!

4 divided by 5 = 0.8 (try it out on paper, and verify on a calculator!).Hope this helps,

6/10 would be 0.6

0.6 is 6 tenths, a way to remember how to figure it out is to say it. If you see 6/10 you would say "six over ten" or "six tenths". If you see 0.6, the six is in the tenths place and you would say "six tenths".

This also works for hundredths. 26/100 = 0.26. 26/100 "twenty-six over a hundred" or "twenty six hundredths". For 0.26, "6" is in the hundreths place, "2" is in the tenths place, but if you read it as "26" together you would read it as being in the hundredths place "twenty-six hundredths".

Hope this helps :-)

The icon on this video never turns blue. It always remains incomplete as if you never watched it even when you watch it all the way through.

Hello,I'm here to tell you about someone amazing.This amazing person loves you so much that he died for you!If you don't know and love this amazing man, you are referred to as a sinner.But you don't have to always be that because the amazing man,Jesus died for you so you didn't have to.If you are a sinner then you are destine for H-E-L-L.But God(Jesus' father)loves you a lot so he sent his son.Now if you ask him he will come into your heart to love,protect,and help you share this great news with other people.If you want Jesus in your heart then say these 3 things with me.1:I ask you Jesus to come into my heart.2:I believe that you are real and that you want to be with me.3:I love and accept you, in your name I(we)pray,amen.If you just said those three things then let me know in the comments.Tell a parent,guardian,sibling or friend. Jesus loves you so much,bye now!
