Which is more precise fractions or decimals?? Plz answer with a simple example....

Fractions can be more precise than decimals. For example: 1/3 can not be expressed exactly as a decimal. .33333333333333333333333333333333333333333... is only an approximation.

Some numbers cannot be expressed precisely as either a fraction or a decimal. pi is an example.

I agree with Bilral,

Fractions can be more precise than decimals.

For example, 1/3 is 1.3333......, but we often write it as 1.33. Clearly 1/3 is more precise than 1.33.

Good luck,

Paul

Between decimals and fractions, decimals are considered to be more accurate as compared to fractions

That ratio is 3/4, height/base, in both triangles. Is that what you mean?

Ratios are normally expressed as a fraction, not a decimal.

- Make sure you're working with two fractions.
- Multiply numerator x numerator, then multiply denominator x denominator.

- Make sure you're working with two fractions
- Flip the second fraction upside down.
- Change the division sign into a multiplication sign.
- Multiply top x top and bottom x bottom.

- Convert mixed numbers into improper fractions.
- Take the whole (non-fraction) number and multiply it by the denominator.
- Add that answer to the numerator.
- Put that amount over the original denominator and you will have an improper fraction.

- Find the lowest common denominator (bottom number). For both adding and subtracting fractions, you'll start with the same process.
- Multiply fractions to match the lowest common denominator.
- Add or subtract the two numerators (top number) but NOT the denominators.

2 feet 8 inches is is 32 inches.

4,500 x 32 is 144,000 inches

divide it by 12 to to bring it back to feet. The answer is 12,000.

When working in feet, which have 12 inches, it is easier to bring to a single figure rather than using fractions. This is the benefit of the Metric system as everything is based on 10s and hundreds and thousands. Millimeters, Centimeters and Metres.

total=144

cats=56

dogs= 144-56= 88

hence, 88/144

the answer for this would be= 11/18
