1/5 is the same as 0.2

wait its not a right?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
hmm convert 1/5 into a decimal.
anonymous
  • anonymous
how.....
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont have a good calculator so i cant do it that way
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
we have divide... kind of backwards though . |dw:1436490067718:dw|
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
five can't go into one so we have to put a 0, a decimal point after it and then a 0 again |dw:1436490129155:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so now 5 can be divided into 10 so divide 10/5
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
or how many times can 5 go into 10 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
it's like 5 x 1 = 5 5 x ? = 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
so ? is 2 then
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yeah .. sorry back my browser was crazy so it's 2 for that portion (we're not done)
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
|dw:1436490426589:dw| so 1/5 is 0.2 in decimal form
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh okay
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so now we have 0.2 0.01 (thanks dan ) and 0.02 if I remembered correctly the more 0's after the decimal point the farther you will go.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the answer it 0.2 or is it 0.02
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so a
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
ugh wrote the wrong fraction... 0.02 is 2/100 which is 1/50
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
but 0.2 is still huge because that's 1/5
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
0.01 is 1/100
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
if I were to rearrange this from smallest to biggest I would start with the fraction with the biggest denominator.
anonymous
  • anonymous
0.02 0.2 then 0.1 right?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
:/ I said I would start with the fraction with the biggest denominator 0.01 = 1/100 0.02 = 1/50 0.2 = 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh i assumes that 0.02 was 1/200
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
because if that denominator is huge, it's small... I made a mistake... when I typed that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay im also kinda slow so yea
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
that's fine :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so whats farther 0,01 or 0.2?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
well if I look at this question differently ... and imagine the thickness of a nail.. I would say that 0.01 is much thinner than 0.2 so 0.01 has to be far.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
0.01 is also 1/100 and 0.2 is 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay thanks
