Can you show me how to complete these problems.....the work involved
1. 3/4 is _____ to .75
a. < b, > c, = d, /
2. .45 is ______ to 1/3
a. < b. > c. = d. /
1) Convert 3/4 into decimal, we will get 0.75. This equal to .75 Therefore the answers is c.
2) Convert 1/3 into decimal, we will get .3333..... , Therefore .45 > .3333.... Therefore the answer is b.
Or you can convert the decimal into a fraction. Take the decimal, and put it over a 1 and 0's so that the number of 0's is the same as the number of decimal places. For example:
0.75 is 75/100
0.33928 is 33928/100000
"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
