Multiply everything by 100.
6022=38 Then, divide the answer by 100. 0.38 Do the others by yourself. Of course, you don't have to do this, but you probably will have trouble otherwise.

Huh? Wait, no.
0.5 times 100 is 50. 0.12 times 100 is 12. If you have 0.50.12, you then get 5012. Then, once you do the minusing (bad grammar), you get 38. 38 divided by 100 is 0.38. Get it?

You don't need to multiply by a 100, just line up the decimals, and subtract regularly. Just drop the decimal to the correct space in the answer.

It would make it easier for her (him?), somedude!
Remember back in second and third grade when you were probably learning this stuff?

All you have to do is move the decimal point! I learned that in first grade!
By the way, read my private message! Last edited by Temperal; 02272007 at 06:56 PM..
