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.
