These decimal word problems are great for ages 10 and older who are looking to improve their decimal skills.
1.24 cups of sugar
Half a cup can be written as 0.50 in decimal form.
1.74 - 0.50 = 1.24
0.375
When converting to decimals, try to convert the denominator to either 10, 100 or 1000. Try:
8 x 125 = 1000.
Then 3 x 125 = 375
The fraction is now easier to convert being 375/1000 = 0.375
0.73
6.77 + 0.73 = 7.50
0.09, 0.19, 0.2, 0.28, 0.35
0.09 is the smallest
0.19 is bigger
0.2 is bigger
0.28 is bigger
0.35 is the biggest
Brownie C
9.98 is within 0.02 of 10 making it the closest of the options to 10.
0.04
When dividing by 100, you should move two decimal places to the right. Moving 4 two decimal places to the right equals 0.04. You can also think of 100 as 10 x 10. And:
4/10 = 0.4
0.4/10 = 0.04
Set 2
When converting to decimals, try to convert the denominator to either 10, 100 or 1000. Try:
75/15 = 5 and 5 x 20 = 100. Then 30/15 = 2 and 2 x 20 = 40
The fraction is now easier to convert being 40/100 = 0.4
0.4
When converting to decimals, try to convert the denominator to either 10, 100 or 1000. Try:
75/15 = 5 and 5 x 20 = 100. Then
30/15 = 2 and 2 x 20 = 40
The fraction is now easier to convert being 40/100 = 0.4
6.84
It helps to first add the numbers after the decimal point.
5 + 49 + 30 = 84
Then add the numbers in front of the decimal point.
3 + 1 + 2 = 6
Together they make 6.84
1.875
When converting to decimals, try to convert the denominator to either 10, 100 or 1000. Try:
8 x 125 = 1000 then:
15 x 125 = 1875
The fraction is now easier to convert being 1875/1000 = 1.875
