• Woh Woh Woh! I already figured in the first 13 secs of the vid that the answer is 5.3! is that correct??
• The beginning was 0.29 not 5.3 the ending was 5.3
• does the fraction multiple
• It's not necessary but yes. Say you multiply 2/4 with 3. You get 6/4 then you can say 6/4 is a multiple of 2/4 because you reached to that answer by multiplying the original fraction 2/4 with 3. Similarly if you multiply it by 2 you get 4/4 which is 1. So technically, 1 is a multiple of 2/4.
• how do you do you're lesson after the vido?
• In the bottom right corner there is a button that says go to lesson. Mostly works.
• What if the numerater is a one digit number
• then if it was 3/10 it would be 0.3 if it was 3/100 you would put a 0 in front like this 0.03
• how do you make 99/100 a decimal?
• You move the decimal place of 99 two times to the left since you're dividing by 100. This gives you 0.99.

Just remember that if you're dividing by any multiple of ten (e.g. 10, 100, 100) you just have to count how many zero's there are in it because this will be how much you will move the decimal place to the left.

• That is a really long decimal. Does it go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on?
