    So a number between .5 and .625 correct?

    Just find the decimal of 5/8. To do this, you divide the numerator by the denominator

    So what's the decimal of 2/3?

    do you want to use fraction? \(1/2 = 0.5 = 4/8\) so \(\large \frac{4}{8}<x<\frac{5}{8} \)

    In 2/3, you want to expand it, so it'd be .66

    Assuming all you have to do is find an integer between the two, start dividing fractions.

    Okay I just found the answers on the back of the book. Should I post them so we can figure out which one it is? All of the answers are fractions.
