wait its not a right?

- UsukiDoll

hmm convert 1/5 into a decimal.

- anonymous

how.....

- anonymous

i dont have a good calculator so i cant do it that way

- UsukiDoll

we have divide... kind of backwards though . |dw:1436490067718:dw|

- 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

oh okay

- UsukiDoll

so now 5 can be divided into 10
so divide 10/5

- UsukiDoll

or how many times can 5 go into 10 ?

- anonymous

2

- UsukiDoll

it's like 5 x 1 = 5
5 x ? = 10

- anonymous

so ? is 2 then

- UsukiDoll

yeah .. sorry back my browser was crazy so it's 2 for that portion (we're not done)

- UsukiDoll

|dw:1436490426589:dw| so 1/5 is 0.2 in decimal form

- anonymous

ohhh okay

- 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

so the answer it 0.2 or is it 0.02

- anonymous

oh so a

- UsukiDoll

ugh wrote the wrong fraction... 0.02 is 2/100 which is 1/50

- UsukiDoll

but 0.2 is still huge because that's 1/5

- UsukiDoll

0.01 is 1/100

- UsukiDoll

if I were to rearrange this from smallest to biggest
I would start with the fraction with the biggest denominator.

- anonymous

0.02 0.2 then 0.1 right?

- 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

oh i assumes that 0.02 was 1/200

- UsukiDoll

because if that denominator is huge, it's small...
I made a mistake... when I typed that.

- anonymous

oh okay im also kinda slow so yea

- UsukiDoll

that's fine :)

- anonymous

so whats farther 0,01 or 0.2?

- 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

0.01 is also 1/100 and 0.2 is 1/5

- anonymous

okay thanks
