Fractions, decimals and percentages used in everyday life
Transcript of Fractions, decimals and percentages used in everyday life
Examples of decimals used in the real world
We use decimals when were measuring an object and distances: e.g. Length and width of your room
Another way we use decimals is when we check a persons temperature
Examples of percentages used in the real world
One way we use percentages is in a exam or a test when the teachers want to write the score they write e.g. 76%
Another way we use percentages is when we check how much percent we have on our phone
Fractions, decimals and percentages
A fraction is a part of a whole or, more generally, any number of equal parts. A fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters.
A decimal is a number written with a decimal point and a remainder that represents portions of ten.
Percentage is a measure of a portion in relation to a whole, often expressed in relation to how many of something there are per 100.
Examples of fractions used in the real world
One of the most common ways that fractions are used is money. A quarter is 1/4 of a dollar, a dime is 1/10 of a dollar, a nickel 1/20 and a penny 1/100. Knowing about fractions and how to compare them makes handling money much easier.
Another way we use fractions is when we cook, when we want ingredients we measure them with fractions e.g. 1/4 flour
