What Is 30/100 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps
The fraction 30/100 as a decimal is equal to 0.3.
A Fraction has three types that are proper, improper and mixed fraction. Moreover, A fraction is constituted of two major parts one is known as the Numerator and the other is the Denominator. It can also be expressed in the form of a whole fraction.
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 30/100.
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 = 30
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 = 30 $\div$ 100
This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem.
30/100 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 30, and 100 we can see how 30 is Smaller than 100, and to solve this division we require that 30 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 30, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 300.
We take this 300 and divide it by 100, this can be seen done as follows:
300 $\div$ 100 $\approx$ 3
100 x 3 = 300
This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 300 –300 = 0
