 Write 2.75 as a simplified fraction.
 So once you get some practice here.
 You're going to find it pretty straightforward to do.
 But we're really going to think through it and get the
 intuition for why this makes sense.
 So if we were to write this down, the 2, that literally
 just represents two 1's, I'll just write it down like that.
 Then we have the 7 in another color.
 We have a 7 one place to the right of the decimal.
 It's in the tenths place, with a THS at the end.
 So it literally represents 7 over 10.
 And then finally, we have the 5 in the hundredths place, so
 it represents 5 over 100.
 Now, if I want to write this as a simplified fraction, or
 really as a mixed number, I have to merge these fraction
 parts right here.
 And to add two fractions, you have to have a common
 denominator.
 And to figure out the common denominator, you just have to
 think about the least common multiple of 10 and 100.
 And that's 100.
 100 is divisible by both 100 and 10.
 So let's get this 10 to be 100.
 So we can do that by multiplying it by 10.
 So when you multiply something by 10, you add a zero
 at the end of it.
 But you can't just do that to the denominator.
 We also have to do that to the numerator.
 So we multiplied the denominator by 10.
 Let's also multiply the numerator by 10.
 7 times 10 is 70, or 70 over 100.
 It's the exact same thing as 7/10.
 Now we can add these two.
 What is 70 plus 5?
 70 plus 5 is 75.
 And our denominator is 100, so this can be
 rewritten as 2 and 75/100.
 And we saw that in the last video, you would read this as
 two and seventyfive hundredths.
 Now we aren't in a completely simplified fraction yet
 because 75 and 100 have common factors.
 And the largest number that goes into both, if you're
 familiar with quarters, is 25.
 Three quarters is $0.75, four quarters is 100 cents, or four
 quarters is $1.00.
 So you divide both of them by 25.
 So 75 divided by 25 is 3, and 100 divided by 25 is 4.
 So as a simplified mixed number, this
 becomes 2 and 3/4.
 And after you do a lot of practice here, and you just
 see a lot of numbers like this, it will be almost second
 nature for you to say, oh, 2.75 is the same thing as 2
 and 75/100, is the same thing as 2 and 3/4.
Be specific, and indicate a time in the video:

How do I write a mixed number as a percent
You just Take away the whole number and the turn the fraction into a percent and then put a decimal point and add the whole number to the percent.
First step, get the denominator to 100
17 1/5 becomes 17 5/25 becomes 17 20/100
Second step, write the mixed number as a decimal number
17 20/100 becomes 17.20
Third Step, move the decimal point two digits right then add a "%".
17.20 becomes 1720%
17 1/5 becomes 17 5/25 becomes 17 20/100
Second step, write the mixed number as a decimal number
17 20/100 becomes 17.20
Third Step, move the decimal point two digits right then add a "%".
17.20 becomes 1720%
ya exactly
it like kurkure
it like kurkure
Ew no they NASTY
What kind of question is that? Cade smith?
you can convert the mixed fraction into an improper one...... and then multiply into 100
This is an example. is there is an improper fraction like 15/7 divided 15 by 7. You will get 2 and 1/7. Hope this helped :)
hi do you like cheeto's
you change the mixed number/fraction into a improper fraction
then, you divide the numerator by the denominator
like this 10/7..............10 divided by 7
then, you divide the numerator by the denominator
like this 10/7..............10 divided by 7
how do you convert a fraction into a decimal?
You should divide fraction's numerator by denominator.
For example:
3/4 = 3 : 4 = 0,75
Sal made few videos about it, here is one:
https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/decimals/decimal_to_fraction/v/convertingfractionstodecimals
For example:
3/4 = 3 : 4 = 0,75
Sal made few videos about it, here is one:
https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/decimals/decimal_to_fraction/v/convertingfractionstodecimals
for example, 4/10 or 4/100
4/0 turns into 0.4 because denominator is 10. 4/100 is 0.04 because denominator is 100.
4/0 turns into 0.4 because denominator is 10. 4/100 is 0.04 because denominator is 100.
You could just divide the 2 numbers together and get a decimal.
so if you have 3/5 you can divide 5 by 100 which is equal to 20 and then multiply 20 and 3 which is equal to 60 so the answer is 0.60
Divide the numerator by the denominator.
For example 1/4 = .25
For example 1/4 = .25
We'll I suggest any one reading this listen carefully!
You have to divide the denominator by the numerator like this:
3/4
4 divided by 3 = 0.75
You have to divide the denominator by the numerator like this:
3/4
4 divided by 3 = 0.75
divide by 100 or by10
how do you convert .044867678938725895 into a fraction?
To start off, you can always turn a terminating decimal into a fraction by putting the number in the numerator and the denominator would be 10 to some power where the power is the number of decimal places.
.044867678938725895 = 44867678938725895/100000000000000000
From there, you start reducing...
.044867678938725895 = 44867678938725895/100000000000000000
From there, you start reducing...
that is a huge decimal. You turn a terminating decimal to a fraction by putting the number into the numerator. then the denominator to from I think the tenth power up. then you reduce it. that would be 1/2
first divide well
Can any body help me with the first question of converting decimals to fractions 1?
i have to convert 0.22 into a fraction.
Please answer quickly.
i have to convert 0.22 into a fraction.
Please answer quickly.
First, you count the number of numbers(numerals greater than 1)on the _right_ side of the decimal place,(in your case, 2)than, you move the decimal place right that many times(in your case to get 22)than divide that number by one with that many zeros on it's right side(100) with 22 over it so 22/100. Than simplify to get 11/50.
How do you add Decimals and fractions?
convert the decimal to a fraction or vice versa, and then proceed as the form dictates
You either change the decimal to a fraction or the fraction to a decimal.
For example say we need to add .75 and 1/2. I would change 1/2 to a decimal which is .5. Then I
add them together and get the answer. Sometimes doing the fraction way is harder because you have to simplify and get the common denominator.
Hope this helped!

You would need both terms (numbers) to be the same, either fractions or decimals.
For example, say we need to add 1/2 + 0.75. There are two ways to work this problem.
1. Convert 1/2 to a decimal (0.5) and add it to 0.75: 0.5 + 0.75 = *0.8*. †
2. Convert 0.75 to a fraction (3/4) and add it to 1/2: 3/4 + 1/2 = 3/4 + 2/4 = *5/4*.
† Correction: 0.75 + 0.5 = *1.25*.

† Correction: 0.75 + 0.5 = *1.25*.
so when i make a mixed number to improper fraction iin dividing fractons i have to flip it around again?
I don't think so. 1 3/4 will turn into 7/4.
If 46% = 30 sheets of paper, how do I find out how many sheets = 54%
This will be a two step problem.
The first step, you will need to figure out the total number of sheets of paper. Put the 46% over 100% and the 30 sheets of paper over X, and set them equal to each other.
46/100= 30/X
Cross multiply and you get
46X=3000
Next divide 3000 by 46 to get the total sheets of paper.
X=65.22 sheets of paper.
Now, you have to figure out 54% of that. Simply multiply .56 by 65.22.
The answer is 36.5232 or ~36 sheets of paper
The first step, you will need to figure out the total number of sheets of paper. Put the 46% over 100% and the 30 sheets of paper over X, and set them equal to each other.

Cross multiply and you get
46X=3000
Next divide 3000 by 46 to get the total sheets of paper.
X=65.22 sheets of paper.
Now, you have to figure out 54% of that. Simply multiply .56 by 65.22.
The answer is 36.5232 or ~36 sheets of paper
How do i write a fraction as a percent if the numerator is not divisible by the denominator (e.g. 5/7)?
5/7 = 0.7142857143 and so on
*100 = 71.42857143
you would have to round it as you wish. that's why it's better kept as a fraction for accuracy.
*100 = 71.42857143
you would have to round it as you wish. that's why it's better kept as a fraction for accuracy.
You do it as a division. 5 divided by 7. You need to be able to do division involving decimals. See https://www.khanacademy.org/math/ccsixthgrademath/cc6tharithmeticoperations/cc6thdivision/v/dividingcompletelytogetdecimalanswer
Just divide 5 by 7 by adding .0 to 5 to become 5.0 divided by 7 then divide.The answer will be 0.713.Then move the decimal point twice to make it between 1 and 3 so the answer is 71.3%
how do you convert 22/32 into decimals
You have to divide 22 by 32.
22 divided by 32, after computing the long division, equals 0.6875.
the area of a square Is 144ft square . what is the length of one of the sides of the square?
To find the length of the side of a square, you find the *square root* of the total area. In this case, the length would be *12 ft*, since the square root of *144* is *12*.
i just don't get how you can change a decimal into a fraction it has been confusing me for a while so do you think anyone could help me understand it better?
decimals into fractions: use the place value of the decimal number
.75 means 75 hundredths, so write it 75/100, then reduce (divide) 75 and 100 both by 25, to get 3/4. (75/25=3, 100/25=4)

how to convert a percent(%) as an improper fraction
To convert a percent to an improper fraction, you need a percent with a value that is greater than 100 percent. Let's say that you had a percent such as 134%. You can convert this percent into 1 34/100 because you have one whole 100% and 34% left over.
I hope this helps!
I hope this helps!
HELP!! How do you do percent times percent? It is so confusing...
it's just like regular multiplication, but you have to convert the percents to decimals first and remember the rules about how multiplying decimals work. so 50% time 60% is .5 times .6 which equals .3. convert that back into a percent, you get 30%.
You just turn it into decimals or fractions then you multiply it and then turn it into a percent.
I was a little lost but after watching the video again i got it
if you have a fraction that is like lets say 25/100 it is going to be 25 percent
it is 1/4 in fraction.
What is a mixed number? I forgot. :/
A mixed number is a whole number, such as 3, 3, or 1, connected to a fraction. An example of a mixed number is 3 1/2.
I hope this helps!
I hope this helps!
Why do we have decimals and fractions and percents?
Why don't we just have one like fractions and not have any other?
Why don't we just have one like fractions and not have any other?
There are many contexts in which numbers are used. Each type of number is ideal at times when others are not. We have variety to maintain flexibility.
Hey sal i am in 7th grade and these videos r awesome, iwas wondering how you would simplify o.oo32
it would be:
((32

10,000
((32

10,000
2/625
2/625!!!!!!!!!!!
.0032 Is the same as 32/10,000. The GCD (GCD means greatest common divisor. If you don't know what that is Sal has a great video on that subject http://www.khanacademy.org/video/greatestcommondivisor?playlist=Arithmetic ) of 32 and 10,000 is 8 so 32/8 = 4 and 10,000/8 is 1250 so your answer is 4/1250. I hope this helps but don't worry if you are confused. You will get it eventually if you haven't already.
how do you convert a decimal into a percentage?
@kayliels it would mean:
.54 = 54%
__^
2.89 = 289%
__^
.0095 = .95%
__^
.54 = 54%
__^
2.89 = 289%
__^
.0095 = .95%
__^
Whats that suppose to mean.
move the decimal 2 places to the right
so you can just add the fraction by making a picture.
yes. it will help u visualise it
I think so. But their might be a easy way too.
yes, if you do it like he showed then it would make it alot easier!!!
can you make more examples?
okay so lets say we had 10/20 to make it smaller halve it once you will automatticly have 5/10 but if you had 60/70 you would have to halve it a couple of times! that was the fractions! if we had 10/50 just take the dit away and add the decimal point its that easy! that was the decimal!
Can this way be used for all problems like that?
yes it can be even if you have over thousands of numbers even if YOU cant i can
Sorry if you have 4 numbers..
Yes if you have 3 numbers in the decimal then it will be totally different.
definitely... i think.
I have a question... when you make 7/10 into a common denominator...do you just add a zero to the end to make it the same?
demoniter is hard but simple and what they said is the most simple ones so im not going to put doiwn the hard ways soz =(
:) thank you so much!
7 divided by 10? no, its written like this:
7

10
7

10
OK thank you!
Putting the zeros to the end of the numerator and denominator is the same as multiplying by 10/10 because 7x10=70 and 10x10=100 .
Multiplying by 10/10 is the same as multiplying by 1, just to make the denominator the same.
Multiplying by 10/10 is the same as multiplying by 1, just to make the denominator the same.

Hey guys, I just figured out an amazing shortcut to converting decimals to fractions. If you already know how to read decimals, it should be easy. By that, I don't mean, (four point three two one). I mean, (four and three hundred twentyone thousandths). If you don't know how to read decimals, check out this link:
http://www.mathgoodies.com/lessons/decimals/read_write.html
Okay, back on topic. An easy way is to just read the decimal out loud, then write down the fraction just like it sounds. Here's an example:
Write 4.93 as a simplified fraction.
First, read it out loud to yourself.
_Four and ninetythree hundredths._
Now, write it down just like you read it.
4 93

100
Last but not least, simplify the fraction if necessary.
Pretty cool shortcut, huh?

how do you convert say 27/7 ( < thats a fraction/ mixed number ) into an improper fraction?
27 / 7 is an improper fraction. If you wanted to convert 27 / 7 to a mixed number, you would divide 27 by 7. In which case, you would have 3 and 6 / 7

Isn't it easier to just divide the numerator with the denominator, to convert to decimals?
Instead of having 2 (in 2.75) as a mixed number is there a way for it to be a fraction like 275/1000
What if the number to the right of the decimal is a 0 i have trouble with .006 written as a fraction?
.6 = 6/10
.06 = 6/100
.006 = 6/1000
.066 = 66/1000
.06 = 6/100
.006 = 6/1000
.066 = 66/1000

How do I covert mixed number to decimals. Like....19 1/2
For this question I would first convert the fraction part to a decimal. 1/2 = 0.5 You can do 1.0 ÷ 2 by long division to get this. Then add the whole number part. 19 + 0.5 = 19.5
does the first number of the decimal always stay the same when u are turning it to a mixed number
The denominator stays the same unless simplifiable.
What if you have something like 6/51 how would you convert that into a decimal? I'm just not understanding the process I guess. I've read the other comments and tried at school, but I can't get it in my head. I'm finishing 8th grade if that matters.
Hi Jake. Finishing 8th grade is very important. This means you need a quick, easy way of understanding how to convert fractions to decimals. Decimal are going to be very important in Algebra I and II.
So here is a quick and easy way to find the decimal: construct a division problem. Take the numerator (6, in this case) and put it inside the division sign.
*
) 6*
Good? now put a decimal point after the whole number. So it should look like this:
*
) 6.*
Now put the denominator (51) on the outside:

51) 6.
Okay? Now put the decimal directly above, in the product area.
* .
51) 6.*
Now complete the problem. You should have one number in front of the decimal point (because 6 is only one digit) and the rest should be behind the decimal point.
The answer will be 0.1176470588 (etc.) Round it and you'll get approximately 0.118.
Hope this helps. If you need more help, just say so and I can give a lot more examples.

what makes you arrived at three all over four?
75 / 100 = (3 x 25) / (4 x 25) Since 25/25 = 1, (25 is GCF of 75 and 100), 75 out of 100 is the same as 3 out of 4.
Is there an easy way to figure out how to simplify 5754/10,000?
First, look at the 2 numbers. You have 5754 and 10,000. You'd have to figure out what the GCF of both numbers are.. or just see.. 2 goes into both numbers, so divide them both by 2, and so on and so on.
whats the answer to 7 over 26
How do you change a fraction into a decimal and vise versa?
how do you order fractions
first you convert them into decimals.Next or der the decimals from lesat to greatest then convert them back into a fraction. A good smartthinking tip always label what each fraction equals to the decimal. for example 1/4=0.25 thats a good tip so its less work. :)
Can anyone explain how to do the cut and copy excersies I dont understand them at all.. for example this question..
The starting block below is 116 units long. Use the tools to the right to convert the starting block into both of the goal blocks that are 23 units long and 56 units long. You can see your progress as the current blocks.
Cutting the starting block into x pieces is the same as dividing it by x.
We want to cut the starting block into a piece that can be copied into both goal block 1 and goal block 2.
The least common denominator of 3 and 6 (the denominators of the goal blocks) is 6. Therefore you can copy a block 16 units long to make both goal blocks.
To find the number of slices to cut the starting block into we solve for s in the following equation:
116÷s=16
116=16s
116⋅6=s
s=7
We now have a resulting block that is 16 units long. Now we simply divide our goal blocks by this value to see how many times we need to copy the resulting block.
c1=23÷16=23⋅6=4
c2=56÷16=56⋅6=5
I really dont get this explanation at all.

how do you convert an infinite decimal into a fraction
If the decimal does not have a repeating pattern, then the number is irrational and cannot be converted into a fraction.
However, if there is a pattern, then the way I do it is to write the repeating pattern in the numerator, then count up the digits in the numerator and write that number of nines in the denominator then simplify.
Example:
.102102102... = 102 / 999 = 34 / 333
However, if there is a pattern, then the way I do it is to write the repeating pattern in the numerator, then count up the digits in the numerator and write that number of nines in the denominator then simplify.
Example:
.102102102... = 102 / 999 = 34 / 333
Why cant i just write 75/100 in the first place because .75 is just 75/100
im not grasping that well :(
How do you convert a fraction into a decimal
"2:01" So we're supposed to find the largest number that fits into both?
Oh! I get it. Thanks!
your supposed to find the smallest number that fits into both i am pretty sure. basically he was simplifying it and i, for some reason, forgot how to simplify. i hope i could help a little!
how do you find out how to divide decimals?
The only way I remember is turn them into fractions and do this:
a/b divided by c/d. Invert c and d and change it multiplication.
a/b multiplied by d/c. Multiply numerator and denominator. Then change back to decimals.
Hope this helped! :D

wat if its was like there was giomg on and on do we have to put a infinity bar yes or noo like we leave it like that?
How do it from the fraction to the decimal not from decimal to fraction
If it is a fraction, e.g. 2/5, try to make the denominator into multiples of 10 (10,100,1000) so for 2/5 it becomes 4/10 then take the numerator and move the decimal point to the left once for each 0 after the 1 ( if 10 then once, if 100 then twice etc..) so in this case move it once. Therefore 2/5 = .4
can you please go slower ????
hey mvegareagan by the way what a rude thing to say you are a meen person dont talk to me that way why dont you stop being lazy find a girl friend {like you even have one}and get a life
rewatch this video.
rewatch the video.
What if it's an odd number? Or a number that just can't divide evenly? Then do we split the decimal into more? Does that make it more complicated? And what if a beginner encounters it?
were can i answer the problem at.
I am sorry I don't know what you mean. Khan
I dont understand how to take a decimal and turn it into a fraction and then simplify it.. Please help me!!!
so you would just move the decimal place over? and put it over the place value?
a good way to change decimals into a fraction is to put the decimal over that many place values over. for example, 0.75 it goe back to hundredthshundred so it would be 75/100 which will simplify to 3/4. Another example is 0.12374923.Now thats a big number but its place value is 100 millionth so it would be 12374923/100 million.those are some examples on what to do
How do u convert fractions with division
First, if the fractions are mixed, you must changed them into improper fractions. If they are just regular fractions, then all you have to do is flip the second fraction.
ex.
4/5 divided by 5/4
4/5 stays the same, but 5/4 is changed to 4/5
After you flip it, all you have to do now is multiply them as if nothing ever happened, just multiply the fractions. Then, there's your answer, but don't forget to simplify.

cant you just put 2.75 into 75/100 and simplipy it isnt it way easier than adding 7/10 and 5/100 because 75 is more than 10 and 5 is in the 100's place and it takes lesser time well that is how i got tought.and for 75/100 an easier way is thinking that 75 is 3 quarters and 100 a dollar equal to 4 quarters
no that is not what i meant i meant to say that you leave the 2 how it was and add it.........
and then you have 2 3/4
and then you have 2 3/4
If that's what you meant :)
2.75 would actually be 275/100. You'd be converting it into a mixed number
How do I convert a decimal as a fraction or mixed number
A bit hard to explain, but I'll try.
.9 would equal 9/10 because .9 is pronounced as "nine TENTHS"
.123 would be 123/1000 because the last number is in the THOUSANDTHS place.
Do you see the relationship?
TIP: Don't forget to reduce the fraction if needed!

I didn't get this until now.But now I am stuck on doing the second one.
Can this appear on the CST's?
thanks , this is great help : )
your welome
how do you simplify
You simplify by using the LCM for example 4/8 is 2/4 or 1/2 because I can divide 4 and 8 by both 2 and four but it has to be same divisor for both like 12/24 is 1/2 if you divide both by two and 1/2 half cant be simplified make sure you can't simplify anymore before answering or it will be wrong. :)
how did he get the answer i don;t under stand this can some one help
Are you even watching the video?
Look at my answer to the very first questiion.
o i get it now he explains it a lot better
this is hard but i think i can do it

How would you simplify a fraction like this 2/6
Numbers: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, ...
2/6
The highest number that goes into 2 and 6 is 2
(2/2)/(6/2)
1/3

The highest number that goes into 2 and 6 is 2
(2/2)/(6/2)
1/3
See how many times 2 goes into six
Answer: 1/3
Answer: 1/3
first you find the two numbers GCM (greatest common multiple) and divide them both by it. your welcome!
what you would do is divide both numbers by 2 so you would get 1/3
What is 1/8 as a decimal and a percent?
how do you covert improper fractions to decimals?
you can convert the fraction to a mixed number, and then convert the mixed number into a decimal
First convert the improper fraction to a mixed number, then convert the fraction of the mixed number to a decimal and add it to the whole number part of the mixed number. Example: 5/4 > 1 and 1/4 > 1 and 0.25 > 1.25
how do I convert fractions to percents
Well, look it:
1/2X
1100
(1/2)*100 = 1*X >> x = 50%
so, you will multiply the fraction by a hundred percent, see another sample:
2/3x
1100
(2/3)*100 = 1*x >> 200/3 = x >> x = 66,6%
1/2X
1100
(1/2)*100 = 1*X >> x = 50%
so, you will multiply the fraction by a hundred percent, see another sample:
2/3x
1100
(2/3)*100 = 1*x >> 200/3 = x >> x = 66,6%
what about 5 .54 i do not get that

do you think Sal rocks
SAL WAY ROCKS. He's like the god of math or something! :)
how do you get the answer
how do you know that
at first i had it but now this video has made me confused so is there another video to help me?
how do you know how to convert decimal to fractions like 11/24????? help please ASAP
When you have a decimal, let's say 0.125, you write all the digits without a decimal dot as the numerator. That's 0125, or, omitting leading zeros, 125. Then you write as the denominator ten to the power of how many digits the decimal has past the decimal dot. That gives you 125/1000 (because 1000 is ten to the power of three, and there are three digits past the dot).
After you've got that expression, you can simplify it by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by 125. That gives you 1/8.
If the decimal has infinite digits past the dot (1/7 = 0.142857142857142857... for example), you should take as many digits as you find enough (without skipping ones in between). In this case you could also use limits or the formula for the sum of an infinite geometric sequence, but you'll get to those later.
Sorry for overexplaining, and enjoy maths.

dont you find the percent too?
No I dont think so
too add two fractions you ne3eed a common denomonater yeye
What does fraction mean?
a part of a whole
What does "simplified" mean?
Ok, in case you didn't get the point (and I wouldn't be surprised!) a simplified fraction is one that is in lowest terms, which just means that the numerator (top term) and denominator (bottom term) have nothing in common. The fractions 3/8 and 9/24 are equal, but in 9/24, the numerator and denominator can both be divided by three. The same goes for 2/4: both the top and bottom terms can be divided by 2, leaving you with 1/2. Hope this helped!
I kind of messed up in my spacing, but I think you can still get the point.
It means that if you have 2 numbers, lets say 10 and 25, instead of simply writing 10 you think to yourself, well, what

25
goes into both 10 and 25? 5, so then you think, how many times does 5 go into 10, 2 times, and then you think, how many

goes into both 10 and 25? 5, so then you think, how many times does 5 go into 10, 2 times, and then you think, how many

lets say you have 10 apples. you eat 3 of those apples. you have eaten 3/10 apples.
you have eaten 3 apples OUT OF the 10 apples that you had originally  you now have 7 apples left.
The 3/10 is a fraction.
Hope this helps ;)
