I am the aunt of a 5th grader and we were doing math homework and the question was What is the equivalent decimal for .05 and 2.875? I am college education and was completely stumped. Please Help. Thought the question should have been what is the equivalent fraction.

Thank you


Hi Sarah,

I agree with you, I think that the question was intended to be "what is an equivalent fraction", so for the first question I would say 5/100 and then simplify to 1/20 .
