Write the fractional equivalent (in reduced form) to each number 30 points

2 Answer

  • Correct answers are:

    1)    1/3 (NOT 3/10).  .3 repeating is not 3/10, 3/10 is .3.
    2)    1/8.  To solve, .125 has three places, so use 1000.  1000/125 is 8, that is your denominator.  125/125 is 1 is your numerator.
    3)    1/6 (divide 100/16, which is 6 ¼ - round to 6.  If you carry this out to 1,000,000/166,667, it is very close to 6.
    4)    1/10
    5)    2/3 (NOT 3/5)
    6)    1/5 (2/10 reduced to 1/5)
    7)    3/4 (75/100 reduced)
