1 Worksheet.4 Fractions and Decimals Section Fractions to decimals The most common method of converting fractions to decimals is to use a calculator. A fraction represents a division so is another way of writing a, and with a calculator this operation a is easy to perform. The calculator will provide you with the decimal equivalent of the fraction. Example : 2 = 2 = 0.5 Example 2 : 7 = 7 = 0.75 Example : 9 = 9 =. Example 4 : 5 7 = 5 7 = 0.74 The last number has been rounded to four decimal places. What is a decimal number? This is a number which has a fractional part expressed as a series of numbers after a decimal point. It is a shorthand way of writing certain fractions. By first examining counting numbers we can then expand this thinking to include decimals. The number 56 can be thought of as 5 hundreds + 6 tens + ones. We can say there are 5 hundreds in 56; we read this information off from the hundreds column. There are 56 tens in 56  there are 50 from the hundreds column and 6 from the tens column. There are 56 ones in 56.
2 The first place after the decimal point represents how many s there are in the number. 0 The second place represents how many hundredths and the third place represents how many thousandths there are in the number. Example 5 : 65. can be written as: 6 tens + 5 ones + tenths + hundredths. There are 6 tens in 65. There are 65 ones in 65. There are 65 tenths in 65. and there are 65 hundredths in 65. Example 6 : For the number 5.07 we have: There are 5 ones in 5.07 There are 50 tenths in 5.07 There are 507 hundredths in 5.07 Note: This is different from 5.7. The zeros in a number matter. Now we are in a position to say: 0. = = = 000 And we can convert some fractions to decimals. Example 7 : 0 = = = =.7 Page 2
3 Because the decimal places represent tenths, hundreths, etc, when we wish to convert a fraction to a decimal we use equivalent fractions with denominators of 0, 00, 000 etc. So our method of finding the decimal equivalent for many fractions is to find an equivalent fraction with the right denominator. We then use the information that to convert it to a decimal number. 0 = = = 0.00 Example : 4 = 4 = 00 = = = = = 4 0 = 0.4 = = 000 = 0. Sometimes it is not immediately obvious what number you need to multiply by to get the right denominator, but on the whole the ones you are asked to do without a calculator should be fairly simple.

4 Exercises:. Convert the following fractions to decimals (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) 5 0 (f) 2 (g) 4 (h) 4 5 (i) 5 00 (j) 9 50 Section 2 Decimals to fractions To convert decimals to fractions you need to recall that 0. = = = 000 Thus the number after the decimal place tells you how many tenths, the number after that how many hundredths, etc. Form a sum of fractions, add them together as fractions and then simplify using cancellation of common factors. Example : 0.5 = = = 5 00 Page 4
5 Example 2 : 0.75 = = = = 4 = 4 Example :.02 = = = = Exercises:. Convert the following decimals to fractions (a) 0.7 (b) 0.2 (c) 0.04 (d) 0.00 (e) 0.00 Section Operations on decimals When adding or subtracting decimals it is important to remember where the decimal point is. Adding and subtracting decimals can be done just like adding and subtracting large numbers Page 5
6 in columns. The decimal points must line up. Fill in the missing columns with zeros to give both numbers the same number of columns. Remember that the zeros either go at the very end of numbers after the decimal point or at the very beginning before the decimal point. Example : Calculate Line up the decimal points Insert zeros so that both numbers have the same number of digits after the decimal point Perform the calculation, keeping the decimal point in place Example 2 : Calculate Example : Calculate This can be written as Exercises:. Evaluate without using a calculator (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) Page 6
