Quick question: do you know how to turn a fraction into a decimal (like \[1/3 = 0.333333333... or 3/4=0.75\] ). If yes, then turning a mixed number into a decimal is the same idea. Let's say the mixed number is \[3 ((4/5))\] (where 3 is the whole number and 4/5 is the fraction). Then we know we will already know what the number is to the left of the decimal point: 3 Now for the numbers to the left of the decimal point we look at the fraction: 4/5. If you know how to divide then you can set up the problem to \[4 \div 5\]. This will equal 0.8/. So if we combine 3+0.8=3.8. If you want to double check this you can also turn the mixed number into an improper fraction. So my example will look like 19/5 as an improper fraction. Again if you use division you will find that \[19 \div 5\] = 3.8. Does that answer your question?

Okay do you know division?
anonymous
  • anonymous
If not, I would recommend getting a pencil and paper to write your problem out.

Wonderful. Just wondering, what is one of the problems you have that is a mixed number? That way we can work on it step by step.

Umm... I Dont Really Have One Its Just A Subject we are working on in school You can make up A PROBLEM IF THATS OKAY WITH YOU sorry fot the caps lock

Okay here is a mixed number: 4 5/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
(where 4 is the whole number and 5/6 is the fraction).
anonymous
  • anonymous
4and5 6th
anonymous
  • anonymous
yess i know that part
anonymous
  • anonymous
like a circle cut into 6 slices and only 5 shaded with 4 whole

Excellent. So if we want to turn this into a decimal we need to figure out the numbers to the left of the decimal first. Numbers to the left of a decimal are whole numbers. What will be our whole number for this problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay so all that is left is to find the numbers that will be on the decimal side. So since you have already address that 4 is a whole number, we now want to focus on the fraction 5/6. Now you will need to do some division (if you want to use paper): so \[5 \div 6\]. Tell me what you get when you do long division.
anonymous
  • anonymous
1 remainder 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
0.83333
anonymous
  • anonymous
Awesome. So now we just need to add our whole number with our fraction/decimal you just found. So 4+0.83333333= ????
anonymous
  • anonymous
4.83333
anonymous
  • anonymous
And that is the answer!
anonymous
  • anonymous
I dont think i can go to school and put = 4.83333
anonymous
  • anonymous
Most of the time a teacher will make you round your decimal. Besides, this is just the process you can take to solve the problem.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so can i take some of the 3's off to make it 4.83 but than again i still dont completely Understand How we got this answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
If your teacher says to round to two decimal places, then yes you can write it like 4.83. How about this; I'll give you a problem and you work on it (going through the process again), and tell me what you think the answer is. Then if you did something wrong I can see what part you may not understand.

How about this: 6 3/8
anonymous
  • anonymous
6.375 is the answer but thats from the calculator
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont get it myself
anonymous
  • anonymous
Try not to use your calculator.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i did the i got 6.2something
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you can see where they got the 6 from in 6.375, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you may be messing up when you are trying to do the division for the fraction.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know that the whole # always goes on the left side of the decimal i just need help when i divide on the right side what do i do with the remainder?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which number did you place inside the division sign: 3 or 8?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 d sign 8 *d sign means division sign*
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you when you're doing long division you need to put 3 inside the division symbol and 8 on the outside. Since 8 can not go into 3, you need to add a decimal point and a 0 after the 3. So it will look like 3.0 divided by 8. So how many times does 8 go into 30?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooooo so 8 goes into 30 3 times and that will be 24
anonymous
  • anonymous
So on top of the division sign you will have (so far) 0.3. So what is 30-24? And how many times does 8 go into that number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ignore the second question actually
anonymous
  • anonymous
30-24=6 and 8 can not go into 6 oh you said dont answer it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Tis fine, but its good that you realize that 8 cannot go into 6. Anyway so after you subtract 30-24 you get 6; if you carry a zero down, you get 60. So how many times does 8 go into 60?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 goes in to 60 7 times that equals 56
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mhm. So now the number on top of your dvision sign will be 0.37 (so far). So 60-56=???
anonymous
  • anonymous
can U be a fan of me please i did it for u
anonymous
  • anonymous
You should finish the problem first.
anonymous
  • anonymous
60-56=4
anonymous
  • anonymous
than will U be a fan?
anonymous
  • anonymous
When you carry down a 0 you have 40. How many times does 8 go into 40?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 goes into 40 5 times and that equals exactly 40
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then on top you have 0.375. And since 40-40=0 you are done with the division. So now you can add your decimal with the whole number: 6+.375=6.375. Does that make more sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes thank you so much no i really understand it and just a couple questions what country are you from is this a female or male and how old are you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm female, but I do not like to give out personal information. I would recommend practicing these problems (they become easier the more you do them).
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats not much of personal information just what country and age there is millions of people in the same country and can be the same age
anonymous
  • anonymous
All that matters though is that you got help for you problem correct? It doesn't really matter what country I am from or how old I am.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it doesnt but i would like to know
anonymous
  • anonymous
never mind its okay i dont want you to feel uncomfortable if im asking a question to personal im sorry dont feel the need to answer me or anyone else if you feel uncomfortable with any questions
