 Question 210942: what is the correct decimal for fifty and eighty five ten-thousandthsAnswer by DRichardson(63)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hello There, what is the correct decimal for fifty and eighty five ten-thousandths 50 85/ 10,000 ( this is how it would be written as a fraction) remember, when converting to a fraction, you would move the decimal two places to the LEFT. 50.0085 what you would do with the fraction is you would see how many times you can get 85 into 10,000 without it making a decimal point and without going over, if that becomes uneven and it doesnt work then divide, i divided here because 85 and 10,000 did not go into each other evenly. Hope this helps! Delilah R.
