Sal finds decimals with hundredths on a number line.

• How can fractions be converted into decimals
• How do you get on the exercise?
• I know he's plotting numbers on a number line, but are you actually able to do that for a lesson?
• yes, some questions let you do that.

• we learned about tenths in the first tutorial
• I am starting to understand
• one. The hints actually, I think, keep going after that. So (mumbles) I encourage you to look at the hints. See if you can make sense of them after you try the exercise. So, let's try another one. Let's do one more. Move the orange dot to 0.27 on the number line. Well, this is 0.2, this is 0.3, so going from here to here is 1/10, and then they've divided that 1/10 into 10 sections, so each of these is 1/10 of 1/10, which is 1/100. So, this is 2/10 and 0/100, 2/10 and 1/100, 2/10 and 2/100, 2/10 and 3/100, 2/10 and 4/100, 2/10 and 5/100, 2/10 and 6/100, 2/10 and 7/100. This is 2/10 and 7/100. Another way you could view it is, this is 20/100. 2/10 is the same thing as 20/100. 21/100, 22/100, 23/100, 24/100, 25/100, 26/100, 27/100. All right. Check our answer, and let's just see the hints. They say "10 equal pieces." They show us that right over here. They actually labeled it. Anyway, hopefully this helps. I encourage you to go try this exercise out now.

• Is there somthing as an infinerty fraction?
• Do you know that Sal's first name is khan? And he made Khan Academy. He named it khan after his first name
• I dont get it at all i just dont understand how to do it..
• HOIIIIII BUDDIS! ITS TOIM FOER SOMUE HEWPWING!

Simply Do This.(SDT in my case)

The number line method is easy you just have to remember the fraction you started off with.
Lets do.... Say 2.6. We end with 2.7.

With 2.6, DO NOT GET RID OF ANY OF THE NUMBERS OR SWITCH THEM UNTIl YOU GET TO 2.7.
Now, count. 2.61, 2.62, 2.63, ect.

Thats all for now!! Please leave a vote to support!
