# What is 3/50 as a decimal?

Nov 15, 2016

$\frac{3}{50} = \frac{6}{100} = 0.06$

#### Explanation:

The first step is to make the denominator into a power of 10 if possible. In this case it is very easy.

$\frac{3}{50} \times \frac{2}{2} = \frac{6}{100}$

Now write as a decimal with 2 decimal places because we have 'hundredths.'

$\frac{3}{50} = \frac{6}{100} = 0.06$
