Out of 45 times at bat, Raul got 19 hits. Find Rauls batting average as a decimal rounded to the nearest thousandth.

Raul only hit 19 times out of 45 bats.
Now, let’s find the average decimal value of Raul’s hit.
=> 19 hits
=> 45 bats
x = value in decimals

=> 19 = x * 45
=> 19 = 45x
Now, divide both sides with 45
=> 19/45 = 45x / 45
=> 0.4222222 = x
x = 0.422222…….
Since it is a repeating decimals, and we only need to find the thousandths value. Let’s get the value of Thousandths.
=> 4 = tenths
=> 2 = hundredths
=> 2 thousandths
Therefore the value of 19 hits out of 45 bats in decimals is
