 # What Is 33/45 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps

The fraction 33/45 as a decimal is equal to 0.733.

The division of a number p by another number q is represented as p $\boldsymbol\div$ q where p is the dividend and q is the divisor. In fractions, the division is represented by the slash “/,” as in p/q. The rules and procedures of division remain the same in fractions.

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 33/45.

## Solution

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 done as follows:

Dividend = 33

Divisor = 45

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 $\div$ 45

This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem. Figure 1

## 33/45 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 45, we can see how 33 is Smaller than 45, and to solve this division, we require that 33 be Bigger than 45.

This is done by multiplying the dividend by 10 and checking whether it is bigger than the divisor or not. If so, we calculate the Multiple of the divisor 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 33, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 330.

We take this 330 and divide it by 45; this can be done as follows:

330 $\div$ 45 $\approx$ 7

Where:

45 x 7 = 315

This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 330 – 315 = 15. Now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 15 into 150 and solving for that:

150 $\div$ 45 $\approx$ 3

Where:

45 x 3 = 135

This, therefore, produces another Remainder which is equal to 150 – 135 = 15. Now we must solve this problem to Third Decimal Place for accuracy, so we repeat the process with dividend 150.

150 $\div$ 45 $\approx$ 3

Where:

45 x 3 = 135

Finally, we have a Quotient generated after combining the three pieces of it as 0.733, with a Remainder equal to 15. Images/mathematical drawings are created with GeoGebra.
