# What is 3/25 as a decimal?

A decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole number part and the fractional part are separated by a decimal point. For example, 2.3 is a decimal number in which 2 is the whole number part and 3 is the fractional part.

## Answer: 3/25 as a decimal is 0.12.

Let's look into the two methods to write 3/25 as a decimal.

**Explanation: **

### Method 1: Solving 3/25 as a decimal using the division method.

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

Here, the fraction is 3/25 which means we need to perform 3 ÷ 25.

Since the numerator is less than the denominator, we have to first put the decimal in the quotient.

By proceeding with the long division method, we have obtained 3/25 as a decimal is 0.12.

So, 3/25 as a decimal is 0.12.

### Method 2: Solving 3/25 as a decimal by converting the denominator to powers of 10.

Step 1: Find a number that we can multiply by the denominator of the fraction to make it 10 or 100 or 1000 and so on.

Step 2: Multiply both numerator and denominator by that number to convert it into its equivalent fraction.

Step 3: Then write down just the numerator, putting the decimal point in the correct place, that is, one space towards the left starting from the right-hand side for every zero in the denominator.

3/25 = (3 × 4) / (25 × 4) = 12/100 = 0.12

Irrespective of the methods used, the answer to 3/25 as a decimal will always remain the same.

You can also verify your answer using Cuemath's fraction to decimal calculator.

### Thus, 3/25 as a decimal is 0.12.
