Welcome back to Year 4 blog.
In Maths this week we have been comparing and converting fractions to decimals. We have to say, we're quite good at it. We were faced with problems such as - 7/10 = what as a decimal, and, 7/100 = what as a decimal. We also converted the other way -0.56 is what as a fraction, and, 0.4 is what as a fraction? It is all about dividing by 10 or a 100. We move the digits to the right when we divide. For divide by 10, we shift the digits one place. So, 7/10 is the same as saying 7 divided by 10, the 7 shifts one place to the right to give us 0.7
