**Changing Decimals to Fractions in Simplest Form**

We know that a fraction is in its simplest form if the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of its numerator and denominator is 1.

Since 0.45 = 45/100 and that GCF of 45 and 100 is not 1, 45/100 is not in simplest form

To simplify 45/100 , divide 45 and 100 by their GCF.

45/5 and 100/5 = 9/20 In simplest fraction form: 0.45 = 9/20

Change each decimal to a fraction in simplest form.

- 0.5 = 1/2
- 0.9 = 9/10
- 0.6 = 3/5
- 0.27 = 27/100
- 0.08 = 2/25

Give the decimal for each fraction.

- 1/5 = 0.2
- 1/2 = 0.5
- 4/5 = 0.8
- 5/10 = 0.5
- 9/10 = 0.9

**Multiplying Two- to Four-digit Decimals**

Find the Product.

0.324 x 0.8 =2.592

0.009 x 0.06 =0.054

0.021 x 0.08 =0.168

That’s just some of sum examples for you to get the formula.

**Understanding Percentage**

**Percent** is a special ratio that compares a certain number to 100%. The symbol for percent is %

Write the missing number for each letter on the blank

- 37% = a/100– a =
**37** - 40/100 = b%=
**40%** - 30% = c/10– c =
**3** - 5/10 = d%=
**50%** - e% = 12/100– e%=
**12%** - 115/100 = f%=
**115%** - g% = 35/10– g%=
**335%** - h% = 1/4– h%=
**25%** - 25/100 = i%=
**25%**

**Finding Percentage Rates**

Fill in each blank to make a true statement

**5%**of 18 is 2**50%**of 48 is 24- 12 is
**10%**of 120 **20%**of 150 is 30**40%**of 125 is 50**80%**of 72 is 54- 40 is
**80%**of 50 - 6 is
**20%**of 30

**Understanding Probability**

**Probability **is the likelihood that an event will happen. An **event** is any happening .

Give the probability of each event

A box contains the number cards given below

10 11 13 10 14 10

- Picking a card with number 10.
**Equally likely** - Picking a card with an odd number.
**Unlikely** - Picking a card with an even number.
**Likely** - Picking a card with a number more than 14.
**Impossible** - Picking a card with a number less than 13.
**Likely** - Picking a card with number more than 10.
**Certain**
