What Is 29/33 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps
The fraction 29/33 as a decimal is equal to 0.8787878787.
The three forms of Fractions are proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed fractions. To make fractions easier to understand and because Decimal values are more useful in mathematical issues, fractions are converted into decimal values.
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 29/33.
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 = 29
Divisor = 33
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 = 29 $\div$ 33
This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem.
29/33 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 29 and 33, we can see how 29 is Smaller than 33, and to solve this division we require that 29 be Bigger than 33.
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 29, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 290.
We take this 290 and divide it by 33, this can be seen done as follows:
290 $\div$ 33 $\approx$ 8
33 x 8 = 264
This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 290 – 264 = 26, now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 26 into 260 and solving for that:
260 $\div$ 33 $\approx$ 7
33 x 7 = 231
This, therefore, produces another remainder which is equal to 260 – 231 = 29.
Finally, we have a Quotient generated after combining the two pieces of it as 0.87= z, with a Remainder equal to 29.
