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.
