• whats eleven hundreths + 100 hundreths
• Sorry for the late reply but it might help others

eleven hundreths is 11 hundreths + 100 hundreths. You need to change them into a decimal. 11/100 is 0.11 and 100 hundreths is 100/100 is 1.00. finally, Add them up 1.00 + 0.11 is 1.11
• Could we have tenths and hundreths word problems?
• Why is it that when the graph is represented in hundredths blocks, it is better to represent it as (tenths+hundredths) instead of (round number of hundredths+extra hundredths)?
• bold can you decompose any number with a fraction?
• It doesn't matter if the denominator of one of the fractions is 10 and the other one is 100 can I still make the sum and the answer is going to be 47/100??
• How do you get a vote?
• Is 25/50 equal to 25000/50000?
• Yes. we can express 25000 as 25x1000 and 50000 as 50x1000 respectively. This way 25000/50000 would essentially be equivalent to (25x1000)/(50x1000), in which the factor of 1000 in both the numerator and the denominator can then be cancelled out
