Question

Question 36.
Fraction 725 is equal to the decimal number ___.


Solution

0.28
In order to convert a fraction into a decimal number we follow the steps as follows: 

(i) we first convert it into an equivalent fraction with denominator 10 or 100 or 1000 or any number of form 1 followed by zeros.

(ii) write its numerator and mark decimal point after one place or two place or three places from right towards left if the denominator is 10 or 100 or 1000 respectively. If the denominator has 1 followed by n zeros, then put the decimal after n places from the right to the left.

The given fraction is 725

25×4=100. So, we multiply and divide the fraction by 4 to get the denominator as 100.
725=7×425×4=28100=0.28
