    62 and 1/2 would be 62.5
    If you have a calculator, try typing in 1/2. then hit "enter" or "=". It should say "0.5". That is one way you can figure out what 1/2 would be as a decimal.

    OK
    thanks

    but what would (62 and 1/2) be a fraction to show it???

  • Math- fractions and decimals -

    Yes. Sixty-two and a half as a fraction would be 62 1/2. As a decimal, it would be 62.5, as we've said before.

    "62 and a half" is 62.5, or 62 1/2, or 125/2. That's all fine.

    But you talked about a hundred chart. I wonder whether you mean what 62.5 is as a fraction of a hundred, which is the same as asking what 62.5% is as a fraction.

    Does your 100 chat show 50 as being 1/2?

    62.5 as a fraction of 100 is

    62.5 / 100 =

    625 / 1000 = (dividing by 125 top and bottom) -

    5/8.
