Fractions and Decimals:
- Fractions and decimals can be used interchangeably, depending on what a person wants, and which is easier to express.
- Often, converting a fraction to a decimal can result in a long decimal value, which may be non-terminating. In this case, the decimal needs to be rounded off, resulting in imprecision in the answer.
- We use fractions and decimal values on a daily basis, with dollars being divided into 100 parts, cents, allowing them to be easily expressed as a fraction or a decimal. For example, a quarter (which is one quarter of a dollar) has a value of 25 cents, or of one dollar.
