Reply to mathsmart's Post: 0.444=111/250 is the answer we got but our answer key says 4/9. I am questioning this because this problem was given by a program we have titled math factory it's basic math for elementary school kids-- you showed us the algebraic way to do it. are you sure there is not a way for a basic elementary school child to know this (unbelievable)or calculate this. Is there a rule for rounding ex .66666 67% or does it stay 66% or does it depend on the instructors instructions
