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

=>.422
