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....
