Fractions, Decimals, and Percents
Mr. Swaner

A Quick Review
• Fractions, decimals, and percents are all parts
of a whole. They are also related and can be
converted back and forth.

Decimals
• Decimals are like fractions because they also
represent parts of a whole, however, decimals use
the base ten system by place value. The place is
named by the furthest right number.

tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths,
hundred thousandths.
0.1 is said one tenth because the furthest
right number is in the tenth place.
0.17 is said seventeen hundredths for the same
reason,
How would we say 0.83
Eighty-three hundredths
How would we say 0.015?
fifteen thousandths,

Converting decimals to fractions
• Converting decimals to fractions is easy because
all we have to do is read the decimal and it
sounds the same as when we read the fraction.
• We read 0.3 as three tenths. which is
• 0.41 is read forty-one hundredths.

Fractions in base 10
• Fractions in base 10 (denominator 10, 100,
1000..) are easy because they are also read the
same way as decimals

Say it and Write it

Converting Fractions to Decimals
• If the fraction has a denominator in base ten
(10, 100, 1,000 etc.) It works the same way.
• is 0.07 both are read seven hundredths.
• If the fraction does not have a base ten
denominator, you must use long division until you
get a repeating or terminating decimal.

Dividing out a Fraction
When dividing the fraction, it is important to
make sure you have the right number in the
house, or inside the division symbol
house
house
basement

These are called terminating decimals
• A terminating decimal ends

17
A Repeating Decimal
• Ummmmmm it repeats. Use a bar to show it repeats

Day 2?

Warm Up
• 1) convert 0.16 to a fraction
• 2) convert to a decimal
• 3) convert to a decimal

20
Converting Numbers into Percents
• When you have a fraction with a denominator in
base 10 (10, 100, 1,000), numbers can be easily
converted into percents.
• The word percent literally means per hundred.
• means you have 40 per hundred or 40
• How could we easily find what percent is?

21
Converting Decimals to Percents
• Lucky for us, decimals are ALL in base ten.
• 0.72 means 72 per hundred or 72.
• What happens if we have 0.851
• How many hundredths are there?
• The left over is just a decimal
• An easy rule for converting decimals to percents
is to simply move the decimal 2 places right.

Lets Try Some
24
Percents to Decimals and Fractions
• To convert a percent to a decimal, we do the
reverse. Instead of moving the decimal 2 places
right, we move it 2 places left and drop the
sign.

25
Convert 27 into a decimal
Now convert 0.27 into a fraction
