What Is 13/100 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps
The fraction 13/100 as a decimal is equal to 0.13.
When a number c is divided by another number d, the expression we get is c/d and it is called a fraction. As in the given fraction 13 is smaller than 100 so it is a proper fraction. The equivalent decimal for this fraction has two digits after the decimal point.
Here, we are interested more in the types of division that results in a Decimal value, as this can be expressed as a Fraction. We see fractions as a way of showing two numbers having the operation of Division between them that result in a value that lies between two Integers.
Now, we introduce the method used to solve said fraction to decimal conversion, called Long Division which we will discuss in detail moving forward. So, let’s go through the Solution of fraction 13/100.
First, we convert the fraction components i.e., the numerator and the denominator, and transform them into the division constituents i.e., the Dividend and the Divisor respectively.
This can be seen done as follows:
Dividend = 13
Divisor = 100
Now, we introduce the most important quantity in our process of division, this is the Quotient. The value represents the Solution to our division, and can be expressed as having the following relationship with the Division constituents:
Quotient = Dividend $\div$ Divisor = 13 $\div$ 100
This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem. Given below is the long division of the fraction 13/100 in figure 1.
13/100 Long Division Method
We start solving a problem using the Long Division Method by first taking apart the division’s components and comparing them. As we have 13, and 100 we can see how 13 is Smaller than 100, and to solve this division we require that 13 be Bigger than 100.
This is done by multiplying the dividend by 10 and checking whether it is bigger than the divisor or not. If it is then we calculate the Multiple of the divisor which is closest to the dividend and subtract it from the Dividend. This produces the Remainder which we then use as the dividend later.
Now, we begin solving for our dividend 13, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 130.
We take this 130 and divide it by 100, this can be seen done as follows:
130 $\div$ 100 $\approx$ 1
100 x 1 = 100
This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 130 – 100 = 30, now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 30 into 300 and solving for that:
300 $\div$ 100 = 3
100 x 3 = 300
The above step produces zero remainders therefore division process stops here.
Finally, we have a Quotient generated after combining the two pieces of it as 0.13, with a Remainder equal to 0.
