Knowing how to show in various ways why decimal and percent equivalents for common fractions can represent the same value You will know how to figure out the different ways a fraction can be represented. You will be prepared for tests like the CST. Are there other reasons why?

Let’s work out a few together How do you write this in fraction form? ½ How do you write ½ in decimal form? Remember that you divide the denominator with the numerator. 21.0 -1 0 00 0.5 How do you rewrite 0.5 as a percentage? Remember that all you do is move the decimal 2 places over to the right! 0 5. 0 50. %
