Stacey reads that 3/4 of the earth is covered by water. cathy reads that 0.71 of the earth is covered by water. what is the difference between Cathys decimal and staceys fraction
       If you think about it in money, 1 quarter is 1/4 of a dollar. If I have 3 quarters (3 out of 4 parts of the whole dollar) I have 75 cents. Thinking about fractions as money can help a lot. If 3/4 =75%, then you can subtract 71 from 75. We know that 75-71=4. Oh p.s. 0.71 is the same as 71% just like one dime, 0.10 is 10% of a dollar. I hope that helps : ) ...
