Steps to convert fractions to decimals.

1. Divided the denominator to itself.

now the denominator is one.

2. Now you divided the denominator to the

numerator. Now you have a decimal over one.

3. Finally round it off to the place value indicated.

Also Here is a picture of the place values we are going

to use.

These are the place values

we are going to use for the

questions below. Also we will

be using ten thousandths just for

rounding off.

*5.Use a calculator to change each fraction to*

*a decimal number. Round to the place*

*value indicated.*

p.g 137 in

*MathLinks 7*Number 5 questions.

**a)**round to the nearest tenth e.g 0.1, 0.2 , 03 .etc

**<-As you see I followed all the steps**

**the 0.5/1 was supposed to be 0.52/1.**

**remember below 5 stays, over 5 five**

**goes up. 2 in the hundredths place is below**

**5. So 0.5 stays as 0.5.**

**b)**Round it off to the nearest hundredth e.g 0.10, 0.20, 0.25 .etc

**<-As you Again I followed all the steps.**

**this picture is already rounded off.**

**The real numbers were 0.49767442.**

**The numbers you have to look at to round**

**off the decimal is 0.497 remember below 5 stays**

**over 5 five goes up. 7 is above 5 so the**

**hundredths place goes up by one.**

**That's why it's 0.50/1.**

**c)**Round it off to the nearest tenth e.g 0.1, 0.2 , 03 .etc

**<-Once again I followed all the steps.**

**This picture is once again rounded off**

**already. The real numbers were 0.86.**

**6 is above 5 so 8 goes up by one. I guess you**

**know the rules for rounding off**

**below 5 stays and above 5 goes up.**

**d)**Round it off to the nearest thousandth e.g 0.123, 0.234, 0.345, 0.543. etc

**<- Finally! The last one. As you see I followed all the**

**steps. This picture is already rounded off. The original**

**number of 0.682/1 was 0.6816609. I look at the ten**

**thousandths place it was the number 6. 6 is above 5 so**

**the thousandths place goes up by one.**

I hope you guys learned Something!

Also don't be afraid on making mistakes.

Mistakes help you learn something new.
