Change to a decimal. 8) 5.000 Solution. - is equal to 1 of 5. 5 equals 50 .625 tenths, or 5.0 ; } of 50 tenths is 6 tenths, with 2 tenths, equal to 20 hundredths, remaining. f of 20 hundredths is 2 hundredths, with 4 hundredths, equal to 40 thousandths, remaininy. of 40 thousandths is 5 thousandths. Ans. .625. 84. Change to a decimal. Solution. — li is equal to 1 of 8. As .7272,8 there are to be four places in the decimal, we annex four decimal places of ciphers to the numerator, reducing it to 8.0000. 11 of 8.0000 is .727211. 86. Change to a complex decimal of three places. 87. Change it to a complex decimal of four places. 144. To reduce a common fraction to a decimal: Rule. Annex decimal ciphers to the numerator, divide by the denominator, and point off as many decimal orders in the quotient as there are ciphers annexed. Note 1. — When the division does not terminate, or has been carried as far as is desirable, the remainder may be expressed as a common fraction and made a part of the result. NOTE 2. — When an approximate result is sufficient, a fraction of or more than } in a result may be rejected, and the last figure of the decimal be made to express 1 more. Thus, .7272 & approximately expressed to the nearest ten-thousandth is .7273. NOTE 3. — When the fraction as a part of a decimal is unimportant, it may be omitted, and the incompleteness of the result simply marked by +. Thus, .7272+ may be written instead of .72721. 94. 484 95. 2;s: 96. 5138 97. Reduce 1' to a complex decimal of four places. 98. Reduce 1 to the nearest ten-thousandth. 99.

Multiply 31.5 by .07. 31.5 Solution. — As .07 is the same as to of 7, 31.5 multiplied by .07 is the same as ado of 7 times 31.5. 2.205 7 times 31.5 = 220.5, and to of 220.5, which is found by removing the decimal point two places to the left (Art. 75), is 2.205. 111.

WRITTEN EXERCISES. 136. Divide 46.48 by .4. 44.) 4644.8 Solution. — Both dividend and divisor may be 116.2 multiplied by 10 without changing the quotient (Art. 72). This is done by moving the point one place to the right (Art. 75). Dividing as in integers, and placing the quotient point under the new dividend point, we have the quotient 116.2. 137. Divide .7935 by .23. 3.45 (23.) 479.35 Solution. — To make the divisor an integer, we multiply both divisor and dividend by 100, 103 by moving the point in each two places to the 92 right. Dividing as in integers, and placing the 115 quotient point over the new dividend point, 115 we have 3.45 as the quotient required. 138. Divide 1.264 by 4. 139. Divide .00115 by .05. 147. Rule for Division of Decimals. If the divisor is an integer, divide as in integers, and point off as many decimal places in the quotient as there are such places in the dividend. If the divisor is a decimal, make it an integer by moving the decimal point a sufficient number of places to the right; move the decimal point in the dividend as many places to the right, annexing ciphers, if necessary, and then divide. |
