Q:

Write a number with two decimals places that is bigger than 4 1/5 but smaller then 4.25 (Could u explain so i can actually understand it? thx)

Accepted Solution

A:
The possible answers are:
4.21
4.22
4.23
4.24

Explanation:
We want a number between 4 1/5 and 4.25.  We will convert 4 1/5 to a decimal first:

Divide 1 by 5:  1/5 = 0.2.

This makes 4 1/5 = 4 + 1/5 = 4 + 0.2 = 4.2.

We want a number between 4.2, which can be written as 4.20, and 4.25.  Any number between will do, so the possible answers would be 
4.21, 4.22, 4.23, or 4.24.
