A) 6 B) 7
C) 8 D) 9

Answer:   A) 6



Explanation:

Sum of the decimal places = 7 .

Since  the last digit to the extreme right  wil be zero ( 5 * 4 = 20),  so there will be  6  significant digits to the right of the decimal point....

Q:

1/8 as a decimal?

A) 0.125 B) 0.225
C) 0.325 D) 0.425
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 0.125

Explanation:

1/8 to convert into decimal,

Find an equivalent fraction with a denominator of a power of 10.

In this case, we will use 1000.

18 x 125125 = 1251000

This can now be written as a decimal with 3 decimal places (because we have thousandths.

i.e, 0.125

 

Hence, 18 as a decimal = 0.125

Q:

125 over 1000 in Simplest Form?

A) 2/9 B) 1/8
C) 3/8 D) 4/7
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1/8

Explanation:

125 over 1000 in Simplest Form means 1251000 in its simple fraction form.

 

Now, to get the simplest form of 125/1000, find the HCF or GCD of both numerator and denominator i.e, 125 and 1000.

 

HCF of 125, 1000 = 125

 

Then, divide both numerator and denominator by 125

i.e, 1251251000125 = 18

 

Hence, 18 is the simplest form of 125 over 1000.

Q:

Express 0.875 and 0.375 as a Fraction.

A) 3/11 & 7/11 B) 7/9 & 9/13
C) 7/8 & 3/8 D) 7/9 & 9/11
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 7/8 & 3/8

Explanation:

Given 0.875 and 0.375

0.875 ::

After decimal point there are 3 digits 875

Now, mutiply and divide 0.875 with 1000

0.875 x 10001000 = 8751000 Now, this can be reduced to fraction 78Therefore, 0.875 as fraction = 78

Similarly,

0.375 :: 

After decimal point there are 3 digits 375

Now, mutiply and divide 0.375 with 1000

0.375 x 10001000 = 3751000Now, this can be reduced to fraction 38Therefore, 0.375 as fraction = 38

Q:

Express 3/8 and 1/10 as a Decimals?

A) 1.375 & 1 B) 0.375 & 1
C) 13.75 & 1.1 D) 0.375 & 0.1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 0.375 & 0.1

Explanation:

3/8 as a Decimal :

In this we should convert the denominator into 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000,... to make it simple.

Now to make 8 into 1000, we multiply numerator and denominator with 125

=> 3 x 1258 x 125 = 3751000 = 0.375

 

1/10 as a Decimal :

1 divided into 10 parts of each 0.1.

 

Therefore, 3/8 = 0.375 and 1/10 = 0.1 in decimals.

Q:

5/8 as a Decimal Equals To

A) 0.625 B) 0.541
C) 0.258 D) 0.147
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 0.625

Explanation:

5/8 is Nothing but to divide 5 into 8 parts.

 

 

As 5 is smaller than 8, the quotient starts with a decimal point to make 5 as 50 to be divisible by 8. (0.)

 

 

Now 50 goes for 6 times in 8 leaving a remainder 2. (0.6)

 

  

Again 2 is smaller than 8, As it already has decimal point in the quotient, now 2 becomes 20.

 

  

Now 20 goes for 2 times in 8 leaving a remainder 4. (0.62)

 

  

Again 4 is smaller than 8, As it already has decimal point in the quotient, now 4 becomes 40.

 

 

Now 40 goes for 5 times in 8 leaving a remainder 0. (0.625)

 

 

Therefore, the decimal value of 58 is 0.625.

 

Now find a decimal value of 1117 and Discuss your at Discuss.

Q:

If two fractions, each of which has a value between 0 and 1, are multiplied together, the product will be :

A) always greater than either of the original fractions B) always less than either of the original fractions
C) sometimes greater and sometimes less than either of the original fractions D) remains the same
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) always less than either of the original fractions

Explanation:

We can easily Answer this by taking some values.

 

The question states that the two fractions, each have values between 0 and 1.

Let us say one of the fraction is 1/2 and the other fraction is 1/3 .

The product of the two fractions is 1/2 x 1/3 = 1/6 .
 is lesser than both 1/2  and 1/3 .

So, the correct answer is that the product is always less than either of the original fractions
