How to Convert a Tenth or Hundredth Fraction to a Decimal? Place values play a crucial role in number systems, rounding off, and conversions. It is one of the fundamental concepts of mathematics. There is a unique value of every digit in a number. Whether a digit lies before a decimal or after a decimal, each digit holds a unique value. The smallest place value on the left side of a decimal is unit, and the largest place value on the right side of a decimal is tenth. Before we learn how to convert a tenth or a hundredth fraction to a decimal, we need to first understand what tenth or hundredth fractions are. Consider the fraction; 7/10, it is a tenth fraction, which means seven shaded division our of 10 total divisions between numbers 0 and 1. When we see that the numerator is smaller than denominator, we can say that the value of fraction is lower than one. Therefore, the number on the left side of the decimal can be written as 0. The fraction can be written in decimal form as 0.7. Consider the fraction; 7/100, it's a hundredth fraction, which means out of the hundred divisions between 0 and 1, sevens divisions are shaded. Similar to above example, when the numerator is smaller than the denominator, the number is less than 1. We can write this fraction in decimal as 0.07. A collective of worksheets and lessons to help students learn how to convert fractions with denominators of tenths and hundredths to a decimal form.

Homework Sheets

It is good to get students into the habit of dividing the numerator by the denominator. This really is used in all facets of math.

  • Fraction to Decimals HW 1 - Fraction to decimal format is simply finding the quotient that the fraction represents.
  • Decimals to Fractions HW 2 - We have a number in hundredths format. We can make it a whole number by multiplying both top and bottom by 100.
  • Numbers Line HW 3 - 0.43 lies in between 0.4 to 0.5. So, we will put a line or circle in between 0.4 to 0.5 accordingly. Since it is closer to 0.4, the circle will be closer to it too.
