Subject: Re: converting fractions to decimals
I'm not sure your fractions showed on my computer, but if she is trying to convert 24/32 (75%) and 18/21 (86%) I always just divide and leave it at that (24 divided by 32 = .75). Is that what her problem is? If so, she needs to just think of a fraction as a division problem 1/2 = 1 divided by 2, etc. I'm not sure that is what you're looking for.
