What Is 4/69 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps
The fraction 4/69 as a decimal is equal to 0.057.
The fraction can be classified into three types which are proper, improper, and mixed fractions. The proper fractions are those in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator.
The improper is just the opposite case of a proper fraction in which the numerator is greater than the denominator. A mixed fraction is a combination of a whole number and a fraction. The fraction under study is a proper fraction.
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 4/69.
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 = 4
Divisor = 69
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 = 4 $\div$ 69
This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem.
4/69 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 4 and 69, we can see how 4 is Smaller than 69, and to solve this division, we require that 4 be Bigger than 69.
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.
As the dividend is lesser than the divisor we multiply it by 10 and we get 40 as the resultant dividend. It is still smaller than the divisor 69 so we again multiply it by 10 and also put a zero in the quotient after the decimal point.
Now, we begin solving for our dividend 4, which after getting twice multiplied by 10 becomes 400.
We take this 400 and divide it by 69; this can be done as follows:
400 $\div$ 69 $\approx$ 5
69 x 5 = 345
This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 400 – 345 = 55. Now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 55 into 550 and solving for that:
550 $\div$ 69 $\approx$ 7
69 x 7 = 483
Finally, we have a Quotient generated after combining the three pieces of it as 0.057 with a Remainder equal to 67.
