Q:
# if a investor wanted to combine 3/4 acre Parcels with 1.6 acre partial how big will the partial be expressed as a decimal

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the size of the combined parcel, you will convert the 3/4 to a decimal.

You can divide 3 and 4 to get 0.75 or you could create equivalent ratios with a denominator of 100.

3 = 75

4 100

This equals 0.75.

Now add 0.75 and 1.6

1.60

+0.75

2.35

The new parcel is 2.35 acres.
