1) 4.28 meters can be expressed as the sum of 4 meters and 0.28 meters.

**4+0.28** meters

2) As 1 meter is equal to 1oo centimeters, 0.28 meters will be equal to 28 centimeters. This can be

expressed as 28/100. therefore, 4.28 meters may be written as follows:

** 4 + (28/100) **meters

3) Representing the same as a fraction, it will reduce to ** 4 (28/100)** meters

4) Simplifying the fraction within the brackets ( 28/100) further, it will reduce to ** ( 7/25).**

5) Thus 4.28 meters can be represented as a mixed number** 4 7/25** or **4 (7/25)** more clearly.

Hope this helps....
