\(\text { (5) } \frac{7}{10}\)

Answer:

0.5, Zero points five.

Hundredths

If \(\frac{1}{10}\) is divided into 10 equal parts, each part becomes \(\frac{1}{100}\) or one hundredth. Therefore, note that 1 tenth =10 hundredths, or 0.1=0.10. By multiplying \(\frac{1}{100}\) by 10 we get \(\frac{10}{100}\) = \(\frac{1}{10}\). Therefore, it is possible to create a hundredths place next to the tenths place. After creating a hundredths place we can write \(\frac{14}{100}\) as 0.14.

\(\frac{14}{100}=\frac{10+4}{100}=\frac{10}{100}+\frac{4}{100}=\frac{1}{10}+\frac{4}{100}\) meaning that when writing \(\frac{14}{100}\) in decimal form, 1 is written in the tenths place and 4 is written in the hundredths place. This fraction is written as 0.14 and is read as ‘zero point one four’. Similarly, 6 \(\frac{57}{100}\) is written as 6.57 and 50 \(\frac{71}{100}\) is written as 50.71.

While writing \(\frac{3}{100}\) in decimal form, we must remember that there is no number in the tenths place and so, we put 0 in that place, which means that \(\frac{3}{100}\) is written as 0.03.
