• How do I write 10/11 as a decimal
• To get 10/11 as a decimal, you simply divide 10 by 11. It is 0.909090909
• 5.8 = 5 wholes and 8 tenths. Am I correct?
• Yes, 5.8 is equal to 5 wholes and 8 tenths, which is also equal to 5 4/5.
Hope this helps!:)
• 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.
• 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.
• So basically she is making fractions in expanded form? I learned that when I first saw Khan Academy! I know she is rewriting fractions as decimals too , but seriously!
• 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
• 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
• I was a bit confused about it
