No that is not right.

It is: 0 . 1 6 7 to 3 decimal places. Since the fourth number is a 6 and this is more (or equal to) 5 it is rounded upwards.

You have also got the decimal place in the wrong place. If we converted the decimal that I have given you into a percentage

what would we have to do? and what do we get ?

Okay try these:

(1) Convert (3/5) into a decimal and then a percentage ?

(2) Convert (5/6) into a decimal and then a percentage ? (Round your answer to 3 decimal places at the decimal stage.)

(3) Convert (7/8) into a decimal and then a percentage ? (Use full accuracy for this one it should terminate.)

Assuming I have done this correctly the images in this post should show (1/6) as a long division and short division.

Hi steveb mandy here just wondering if you could help me to sort out a homework timetable for ure maths that we do together and make sure I have the right. Equipment should need as well? Send me a message back please to let me know?

Hi Mandy. A couple of questions: (I have hastily edited that post by the way because I have changed my mind about what I wanted

to write.)

Equipment:

How well are my emails appearing in terms of readability etc. ?

Also: are you able to use the "zoom" function on your browser (internet explorer, chrome, firefox etc??)?

I don't want you to spend any money on anything by the way.

I have received some emails from you that have said they were sent by a BlackBerry and I just wanted to check that you are OK

with how well you can see my posts. I know Bob and some others write in a large font using Latex. I can do that, but the trouble

is that it takes me longer to post things that way and I can get in a muddle with it - difficult if you are online at the same time.
