You are correct in your calculations. 900 / 11 is a repeating decimal: 81.818181... When rounded to the nearest hundredth, it is 81.82 since the following digit is 8, which is greater than or equal to 5.
I am converting fractions to percents, rounding to the nearest hundredth.
The problem I'm stuck on is 9/11.
I multiplied 9/11 by 100/1 to get 900/11
Now I've begun dividing, and get stuck at the same part.
Step by step -
1. 11 goes into 90, 8 times
2. 90-88 = 20
3. 20 goes into 11, 1 time
4. 20-11= 9
? ? ? ?
The answer sheet states the answer as being 81.81
Anyone willing to explain & clarify this for me, deeply appreciated
