When preparing a cereal bowl for breakfast, of people put the cereal in first. Express as a decimal.
What is the length of the shaded part in centimeters? What percent of the ruler is it?
If now we use meter as a length unit and the ruler is one meter long, what is the length of the shaded part in meters?
The ratio of the length of the shaded part to that of the whole ruler can be expressed as a fraction, a percent (which is a fraction where the denominator is 100), or as a decimal. In the latter case, the decimal can be interpreted as the length of the shaded part when the whole is 1. Give this ratio as a decimal.
Convert into a decimal.
