The fraction of days it rained is 48/80 so you need to convert this common fraction to a decimal fraction. I would first simplify the fraction. I know that 6 × 8 = 48 so 8 divides both the numerator and denominator. Hence
But 2 divides the numerator and denominator of 6/10 so
There are no more simplification of the fraction so all that remains is to convert 3/5 to a decimal fraction. To do so divide 5 into 3 using long division. I get 3/5 = 0.6 and hence 48 out of 80 days is 0.6. I hope this helps,
