Notes for session 7, Part B


Note 2

Why would we want to change decimals to fractions or fractions to decimals? Sometimes computations are easier with decimals, and sometimes they're easier with fractions. For example, it might be easier to multiply by 3/4 than 0.75. On the other hand, it may be easier to divide by 2 than to multiply by 0.5.
