Q:
# Morgan needs a board that is 80/100 meters long. Javier hands him a board that is 0.8 meter. Can Morgan use that board?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: "Yes."

______________________________________________________

Explanation:

______________________________________________________

" Yes; since: "80/100" m = "8/10" m = "0.8" m .

______________________________________________________

Note: Cancel out a "zero" from BOTH the "80" (in the numerator) and the "100" (in the denominator); to get: "80/100" = "8/10" .

This is the same as: "80/100" = "(80÷10) / (100 ÷10)" = "8/10".

___________________________________________________

Note that: "8/10" can be written as the decimal equivalent: "0.8" .

___________________________________________________

As such: "80/100" m = "8/10" m = "0.8" m .
