We know. Fractions and decimals may not sound exciting. But we have great news: you’re already a pro. Yep, you’ve been using fractions and decimals for years and years. Remember splitting up a pizza equally between 6 people? Ever been half an hour late? Ever bought something for $2.50? That’s all we’re talking about here.

We’ll arm you with tricks and tools to take on any fraction or decimal problem that dares to cross your path. We’ll show you loads of examples along the way. And we’ll also try out word problems because those are what you’ll actually run into in your daily life. “Hey buddy, do you have change for a dollar?”

Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
