00:00:01.280 --> 00:00:05.170
Express 574 percent as a decimal.
00:00:07.450 --> 00:00:11.080
Our starting place here is 574 percent.
00:00:12.520 --> 00:00:15.110
We wanna know what that is as a decimal.
00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:26.150
But instead of jumping straight to a decimal, I’m going to write it first as a fraction, and then we’ll take that fraction and turn it into a decimal.
00:00:28.020 --> 00:00:31.900
So here we go, 574 percent as a fraction.
00:00:33.730 --> 00:00:48.710
Remember that a percent is a ratio expressed as a fraction of 100 which means 574 percent equals 574 over 100.
00:00:50.830 --> 00:00:56.570
Now that we know our fraction, we’ll take this fraction and we’ll use it to help us find the decimal.
00:00:58.270 --> 00:01:02.650
We can do that by dividing 574 by 100.
00:01:04.530 --> 00:01:08.390
100 goes into 574 five times.
00:01:09.540 --> 00:01:12.100
Five times 100 equals 500.
00:01:13.670 --> 00:01:15.740
We have a remainder of 74.
00:01:16.970 --> 00:01:24.550
So I’m going to add a decimal and a zero, and then I’ll bring down that zero.
00:01:26.400 --> 00:01:30.800
Now we ask how many times does 100 go into 740.
00:01:32.350 --> 00:01:34.370
The answer equals seven times.
00:01:35.460 --> 00:01:38.380
But we can’t forget to bring up the decimal that we’ve added.
00:01:40.090 --> 00:01:42.990
Seven times 100 equals 700.
00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:46.660
After we subtract, we have a remainder of 40.
00:01:48.100 --> 00:01:49.870
We’ll bring down one more zero.
00:01:51.380 --> 00:01:54.340
How many times does 100 go into 400?
00:01:55.470 --> 00:01:57.060
The answer is four times.
00:01:58.710 --> 00:02:01.770
400 minus 400 equals zero.
00:02:03.560 --> 00:02:06.090
And that means we’re finished with our long division step.
00:02:08.430 --> 00:02:18.100
574 percent written as a decimal is 5.74, five and 74 hundredths.
