You need to move the decimal so make it 24. divide it by 30
Okay so you need to do this using fractions, well thats what I learnt anyway. So start off with the thing you want to divide on top and the thing youre dividing by on the bottom. 2.4 - 40 (Sorry but that is the only way to show working) Now you change the decimal into a whole number by multiplying it by 10. If the number was 2.44 then it would times by 100. 24 - 40 Now times 40 by 10 because whatever operation you apply to the top, you need to apply to the bottom. 24 - 400 So now you just do 24 divided by 400 which is. 0.06 I hope this (long) explanation helped
Why divide it by 30 though?
sorry i met 40
Would the answer be 0.6
it is 0.8
