I just need to know the basic rules on how to multiply and divide decimal numbers....Please help! I need this before tommorow so ASAP would be much appreciated.
give me a few minutes and I will post what you need to do without turning them into fractions...Code:101 201 101 x 201 20301 1.01 x 2.01 = --- x --- = --------- = ----- = 2.0301 100 100 100 x 100 10000
(but first I have to get chopper challenge back )
Edit: I was planning to go into detail with some color coding, but I guess topsquark's way of teaching it works (seriously, I was planning on taking like 5 minutes)
Division is a bit trickier: Let's do 1.01 / 23.1. Here we subtract decimals: 2 - 1 = 1. Now calculate 101/231 = 0.43723 or so. Now shift the decimal 1 place to the left: 0.043723. (If the subtraction gives a negative number, as in 10.1/2.31, shift the decimal to the right.)
