Representation of Decimal Fractions with 100 as Denominator
The following are the simple steps to visualise the decimal fractions having 100 as the denominator.
- Consider a box and divide it into 100 equal parts.
- Colour the numerator value number of parts in the box.
- That gives the hundredth position in the decimal fraction.
- You can also represent it as a decimal number by placing the point.
Represent 8/100, 50/100 and 85/100 here.
Take a square box and divide it into 100 equal parts
Here, the shaded part is only eight, so it is eight hundredths. In decimal fraction, 8/100 and the decimal number is 0.08 or point zero 8.
As the shaded part is 50, so it is fifty hundredths. The decimal number is 0.50 or 0. and the decimal fraction is 50/100.
Out of 100, the shaded part is 85, it is called eighty-five hundredths. The decimal fraction is 85/100, the decimal number is 0.85 or point eight five.
