What Is 33/100 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps
The fraction 33/100 as a decimal is equal to 0.33.
The word “Fraction” is taken from the Latin term “Fractio,” meaning “to break,” so it represents a part of a whole, i.e., a portion or section of any quantity out of one whole thing, value, or a number. Mathematically a fraction is expressed as P/Q, where P is the number of parts the whole is being divided into while Q denotes how many sections of the fractions are represented.
Here, we are more interested in the division types that result 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 33/100.
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 = 33
Divisor = 100
Now, we introduce the most important quantity in our division process: 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 = 33 $\div$ 100
This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem. The following figure shows the long division:
33/100 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 33 and 100, we can see how 33 is Smaller than 100, and to solve this division, we require that 33 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, we calculate the Multiple of the divisor closest to the tip 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 33, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 330.
We take this 33 and divide it by 100; this can be seen done as follows:
330 $\div$ 100 $\approx$ 3
100 x 3 = 300
This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 330 – 300 = 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
This, therefore, produces a remainder that is equal to 300 – 300 = 0. Now we have zero Remainder, we stop here and combine the two pieces of our Quotient to get 0.33 with the final Remainder equal to 0
