## Rational Numbers as Decimals Worksheet

**Example 1. **

Express \(\frac { 5 }{ 42 } \) as a decimal fraction and correct up to 3 places?

**Solution:**

Given Rational Number is \(\frac { 5 }{ 42 } \)

To obtain the decimal fraction of the given rational number we need to simply divide the numerator with the denominator. The Long Division Process is such

Therefore, \(\frac { 5 }{ 42 } \) converted to decimal fraction up to 3 places is 0.119

**Example 2.
**Without actual division, find which of the following fractions are terminating decimals?

(i)\(\frac { 7 }{ 15 } \)

(ii)\(\frac { 130 }{ 256 } \)

(iii)\(\frac { 58 }{ 200 } \)

**Solution:**

(i)\(\frac { 7 }{ 15 } \)

We Can say if a number is terminating or non-terminating by using the formula below

If the Denominator can be expressed in the form n = 2^m*5^n where m, n =0,1,2…..

Here Denominator = 15

We can’t express 15 in the form of 2^m*5^n so it is a non-terminating decimal.

(ii)\(\frac { 130 }{ 256 } \)

If the Denominator can be expressed in the form n = 2^m*5^n where m, n =0,1,2….. then it is terminating decimal or else a non-terminating decimal

Here Denominator = 256

We can express 256 in the form of 2^m*5^n i.e. 2^7*5^0

Thus, the given fraction is a terminating decimal.

(iii)\(\frac { 58 }{ 200 } \)

If the Denominator can be expressed in the form n = 2^m*5^n where m, n =0,1,2….. then it is terminating decimal or else a non-terminating decimal

Here Denominator = 200

We can express 200 in the form of 2^m*5^n i.e. 2^3*5^5

Thus, the given fraction is a terminating decimal.

**Example 3.
**If \(\frac {4 }{ 13 } \) is changed into a decimal number then what type of decimal number it is?

**Solution:**

Given Rational Number is \(\frac {4 }{ 13 } \)

To obtain the decimal fraction of the given rational number we need to simply divide the numerator with the denominator. The Long Division Process is such

**
**\(\frac {4 }{ 13 } \) is a non-terminating decimal.

**Example 4.
**Write the following fractions as decimal numbers?

(i)\(\frac {1 }{ 3 } \)

(ii)\(\frac {13 }{ 9 } \)

(iii)\(\frac {17 }{ 54 } \)

**Solution:**

(i)\(\frac {1 }{ 3 } \)

**
**\(\frac {1 }{ 3 } \) converted to a decimal fraction is 0.333…..

(ii) \(\frac {13 }{ 9 } \)

\(\frac {13 }{ 9 } \) converted to decimal fraction is 1.444…..

(iii) \(\frac {17 }{ 54 } \)

\(\frac {17}{ 54 } \) converted to decimal fraction is 0.314

**Example 5.
**Express \(\frac {8 }{ 23 } \) to decimal form and correct up to 4 places?

**Solution:**

Here Divisor = 23, Dividend = 8.

Performing Long Division Process we can get the decimal form as follows**
**\(\frac {8 }{ 23 } \) converted to decimal form is 0.3478
