## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 4 Answer Key Chapter 10 Lesson 4 Model Decimals and Fractions

You can write a decimal as a fraction. Both a decimal and a fraction show part of a whole.

**Draw It**

Write 0.4 as a fraction with a denominator of 10.

1. Write the decimal in the place-value chart.

2. Shade the grid to represent four tenths.

Shade four of the ten equal parts.

3. Write a fraction.

**Talk About It**

Question 1.

Shade the models below to show how 0.7 and 0.70 are equivalent.

Answer:

0.7 is indicated with an yellow color, where 7 parts are filled out of 10 total parts.

So, 7 divided by 10 gives 0.7 in decimal.

0.70 is indicated with an yellow color, where 70 parts are filled out of 100 total parts.

So, 70 divided by 100 gives 0.70 in decimal.

Question 2.

Write two fractions that represent the models in Exercise 1.

Answer: similar to Question1, 0.2 and 0.20 are equivalent.

0.2 is indicated with an pink color, where 2 parts are filled out of 10 total parts.

So, 2 divided by 10 gives 0.2 in decimal.

0.20 is indicated with an pink color, where 20 parts are filled out of 100 total parts.

So, 20 divided by 100 gives 0.20 in decimal.

Question 3.

**Mathematical PRACTICE** Draw a Conclusion Explain how you could write \(\frac{9}{10}\) as a fraction with a denominator of 100 without using models.

Question 20.

The fourth grade class is donating 100 clothing items to charity. 63 hundredths of the items are sweaters and 0.20 of the items are jeans. What part of the clothing items are neither sweaters nor jeans’ Write the number as a fraction with a denominator of 100.

Answer: Total clothing items =100

Total number of sweaters out of 100= 63

Total number of jeans out of 100= 20

Question 22.

How can I use models to relate fractions and decimals?

Answer: Both decimals and fractions are represented using models. The coloured parts out of the total number of parts are used to illustrate the example of both fractions and decimals.

For instance, Suppose there are 10 components, 4 of which are blue. Therefore, \(\frac{4}{10}\) is in the fractional component and 0.4 is in the decimal part when you divide 4 by 10.
