# 11/20 as a Decimal

## Question: What is 11/20 as a decimal?

The fractions and decimals are just two ways to represent the same numbers.

## Answer: 11/20 as a decimal is equal to 0.55.

Let's convert the given fraction to a decimal.

## Explanation:

To convert any fraction to decimal form, we just need to divide its numerator by denominator.

Here the fraction is 11/20 which means we need to perform 11 ÷ 20.

It is difficult to perform a division when a dividend is less than the divisor.

So, we re-write 11/20 as (11/20) × 100/100.

So, (11/20) × 100 = 11 × 5 = 55

Now, 55 ÷ 100 = 0.55

Therefore, 11/20 = (11/20) × 100/100 = 55/100 = 0.55

### Thus, 0.55 is the decimal equivalent to 11/20.
