Decimals, Fractions, Percents
Teacher Proficiency/Basic Math Skills
In this exercise you are going to memorize and workout decimal, fraction, percent problems. They are all basically long division problems.
1. Take a piece of paper,not your keyboard,and write out these conversions three times in a row. Memorize these common conversions, because pre-algebra is full of them.
2. The conversions in number one won’t always be written this way. That’s why you also have to know how to work them out.
1. Fraction Decimal Percent 1/100 .01 1% 1/10 .10 10% 1/4 .25 25% 1/3 .33 33% 5/10 .50 50% 3/4 .75 75% 1/1 1.0 100%
2. Students can’t memorize all fractions, so let’s see how to convert them.Long division solves every fraction conversion problem.
Fraction Decimal Percent 1/16 = 1 divided by 16 .0625 Move the decimal point back two spaces 6.25% 864/100 = 864 divided by 100 .864 Move the decimal point back two spaces 86.4%
Use a calculator to check your long division.
Next tutorial, we are going to work more on percent word problems.
