How to Convert a Fraction Between a Tenth and a Hundredth? Tenths and hundredths are place values that represent a very small quantity. The numbers after the decimal point come under these place values. The first digit after a decimal point is the tenth position and the number following the tenth value presumes the place value of hundredth. When we say one tenth, we are terming one part of number 10 which is 1/10 in fraction and 0.1 in decimal form. One hundredth is one part of the number 100 which is 1/100 in fraction and 0.001 in decimal form. In some mathematical situation you might be asked to convert a fraction into tenth or hundredth. To convert a fraction from tenth into hundredth, you have to multiply the fraction by 1/(10 ). If you want to covert a whole number into tenth you multiply it by 1/10 and to convert it into hundredth, you multiply the number by 1/100. These worksheets and lessons help students learn how to work with denominators that have values that are either tenths or hundredths.

We start by adding two fractions with very different denominators. We then work with cross multiplication to find unknowns.
- Sums Homework 1 - A common denominator must be used in order to add fractions. When fractions are added, they must refer to the same whole.
- Unknowns Homework 2 - What should x equal?
- Sums Homework 3 - A common denominator must be used in order to add fractions. When fractions are added, they must refer to the same whole.
We follow suit here, too. We have two unknowns and one sum.
