Solution

The correct option is B 0.75
Let's convert 34 to a decimal.

34 represents 3÷4.

Step 1: In the given fraction 34, take the numerator digit 3 as a dividend and the denominator digit 4 as the divisor.


Step 2: Here, denominator > numerator.

We have to make the dividend digit (3) greater than the divisor digit (4) by placing 0 next to the 3 and to the quotient respectively.

Now we have 30 as a new dividend. (30>4).


Step 3: In the quotient part, it is important to insert decimal (.) after 0 and start the division.


Step 4: Multiply 4 with a number so that the product is less than or equal to 30.

4×7=28. Now, the quotient is 7 and the remainder left is 2.


After introducing a decimal point in the quotient we can introduce one 0 at each step of division.

Step 5: Now, the new dividend is 20. Multiply 4 with a number so that the product is less than equal to 20.

4×5=20. Here now the quotient is 5 and the leftover remainder is 0.

34 can be written as 0.75.

So, Charu paid 0.75 for the eraser.
