|Convert the following fraction to a percentage and decimal: →||30|
This is also written as 30 is what percent of 90
Evaluating using our inputs, we get:
|Percentage =||Numerator * 100|
Percentage = 33.3333%
Now we need to calculate the decimal version of the percentage:
The decimal version of a percentage is just the percentage divided by 100.
Dividing by 100 is the same as shifting the decimal point 2 places to the left.
Shifting 33.3333 one decimal place to the left, we get --> 3.33333
Shifting 3.33333 another decimal place to the left, we get --> 0.3333Check to see if 0.3333 is a terminating decimal:
A terminating decimal is one that ends and does not repeat
Since the decimals 3 repeats, this is not
a terminating decimal
