what is 1/3 as a decimal

Apr 28th, 2015


1/3

= 0.333333..........

  One-third means ONE divided into THREE parts.  So, to find the decimal equivalent, do the division.

1 divided by 3 = 0.33333333... etc.

In a case like this, where the decimal is repeating, you can either round it to a certain decimal place (.3, .33, .333 etc) or you can draw a line over the part that repeats (in this case 3).

0.33333..... (repeating) is a rational number.Since it can be expressed as a fraction but is never-ending.


ANSWER IS

   1/3 = 0.333333....

hope you understood...please message if you have any doubts...thank you
