|Hello and takes for taking time to help me with this problem. This is from Khan Academy.
I was asked to find the rate of this problem:
Henry can write 5 pages of his novel in 3 hours
At this rate, how many pages can Henry write in 8 hours?
I know the formula to working the problem but what makes me pause is the answer I get 13.33 (its abbreviated). When I typed it in the answer box it was wrong because it wasn't in fraction form which is written as 13 1/3.
and that's where I'm stuck, 1/3 written as a decimal is 0.33 so I get why the 13 1/3 but 0.33 written as a fraction is 33/100 and it cant be simplified any further.
My question is...how do i get 1/3, I understand why the fraction form after researching it but I don't understand the formula of how it got there.
I hope my explanation of my problem was helpful I really didn't know how to word it.
Thanks in Advance for the help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
