Converting decimals to fractions 2 (ex 1)

  • 0:00 - 0:07
    Let's see if we can write 0.0727 as a fraction.
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    Now let's just think about what places these are in.
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    This is in the tenths place...
  • 0:13 - 0:17
    This is in the hundredths place...
  • 0:17 - 0:22
    This 2 is in the thousandths place...
  • 0:22 - 0:27
    and this last 7 is in the ten-thousandths place.
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    So, there are a couple of ways we can do this. The way I like to think this,
  • 0:31 - 0:39
    this term right here is in the ten-thousandths place, we can view this whole thing right over here as "727 ten-thousandths,"
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    cuz this is the smallest place, right over here.
  • 0:43 - 0:53
    So let's just rewrite it. This is equal to 727 over 10,000.
  • 0:53 - 0:58
    And, we've already written it as a fraction, and I think that's about as simplified as we can get.
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    This number up here is not divisible by 2, it's not divisible by 5.
  • 1:02 - 1:09
    In fact, it's not divisible by 3, which means it's not divisible by 6 or 9. Doesn't even look to be divisible by 7.
  • 1:09 - 1:13
    It might be a prime number. But I think we are done.
