Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will be asked to relate fractions to decimals.

 

You will be asked to convert fractions to decimals:

Example:

Write the fraction as a decimal fraction:

2 + 42 ⁄100 = ?

 

Answer:

42 hundredths is written as 0.42

So the answer is 2.42

 

You will also be asked to convert decimals to fractions:

 

Example:

Write the decimal fraction as a fraction

1.1 = ?

 

Answer:

1.1  = 1 whole 1 ⁄10

So the answer is 1 + 1 ⁄10

 

Trickier questions:

To convert a fraction to a decimal, we divide the numerator by the denominator. 

1 ⁄2 = 1 ÷ 2 = 0.5

 

Sometimes it helps to use a calculator.

1 ⁄4 = 0.25

1 ⁄3 = 0.3

1 ⁄6 = 0.16

1 ⁄8 = 0.125

1⁄10 = 0.1

1 ⁄5 = 0.2
