The decimal form of $$\frac{3}{25}$$ is $0.12$.

The decimal form of ( \frac{3}{25} ) is $0.12$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Perform the Division

To convert the fraction ( \frac{3}{25} ) into decimal form, we need to divide the numerator (3) by the denominator (25).

1. Set Up the Division

When performing the division, set it up as: $$3 \div 25$$

1. Perform Long Division

Since 3 is smaller than 25, we need to add a decimal point and a zero to 3. We treat it as 30.

1. Calculate

Now divide 30 by 25:

• 25 goes into 30 one time (1), so we put a 1 in the quotient.
• Multiply 1 by 25, which gives us 25.
• Subtract 25 from 30, leaving us with 5.
• Bring down another 0, making it 50.
1. Continue Dividing

Now divide 50 by 25:

• 25 goes into 50 two times (2), so we put a 2 in the quotient.
• Multiply 2 by 25, which gives us 50.
• Subtract 50 from 50, resulting in 0.
1. Final Result

Since there’s no remainder, we combine the numbers we found in the quotient. The decimal form of ( \frac{3}{25} ) is:

$$0.12$$

The decimal form of ( \frac{3}{25} ) is $0.12$.
