## What is 9/20 as a decimal?

### Understanding the concept of decimals

Decimals are a way to represent numbers that fall between whole numbers. They are used to **express fractions** and to provide a more precise measurement of quantities. Decimals are based on the powers of 10, with each digit to the right of the decimal point representing a decreasing power of 10.

### Conversion of to decimals

When converting a fraction to a decimal, we are essentially trying to express the fraction as a decimal number. This can be done by dividing the numerator (the top number) by the denominator (the bottom number).

### Converting 9/20 to decimal form

To convert the fraction 9/20 to form, we divide the numerator (9) by the denominator (20). When we perform this division, we find that 9 divided by **20 equals 0**.45.

### Finding the decimal equivalent of 9/20

The decimal equivalent of 9/20 is 0.45. This means that 9/20 can be expressed as the decimal number 0.45.

### Using long division to convert 9/20 to decimal

Long division is a method used to *divide one number* by another. In the case of converting 9/20 to a decimal, we can use to find the quotient.

Here is the step-by-step process to convert 9/20 to a decimal using long division:

- Place the dividend (9) inside the long division bracket and the divisor (20) outside the bracket.
- Divide the first digit of the dividend (9) by the divisor (20). The result is 0.
- Bring down the next digit of the dividend (0) and place it next to the previous quotient (0).
- Divide the new dividend (0) by the divisor (20). The result is 0.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have enough decimal places or the
**division terminates**.

In the case of 9/20, the division terminates after two decimal places, giving us the quotient of 0.45.

By using long division, we can see that the of 9/20 is indeed 0.45.
