Question #13990

Hi! I am Ashley and I have a question. Here is what is says: Explain how knowing that 5 divided by 8 = 0.625 helps you write the decimal for 4 and five eighths. This is very confusing to me. I did not know what category it was in so I just put Other. -Thanks! :)

Expert's answer

The decimal for 4 and five eighths is equal 4+ 5 divided by 8. Thus if we know that 5 divided by 8 = 0.625 than we need to add 4

4+0.625=4.625

4+0.625=4.625

Assignment Expert28.02.13, 14:49You need to write the decimal for 4 and 5/8, so we have a mixed number 4 5/8. Obviously 4 5/8=4+5/8

You're given that 5 divided by 8 = 0.625, hence to find required number we ought to add 4 to 0.625. Therefore, the answer is

4+0.625=4.625
