Example problems- Fraction of penny:

Example 1:

The true discount on a bill of 450 penny is 90 penny. The banker's discount or reduction is:


P.W. = (450 - 90) = 360.

S.I. on 450 = 90.

S.I. on 450 = `(90/360)*450` = 125

Therefore bankers discount = 108 pennies.

Example 2:

Find the fraction of a penny and a dollar.


We know that one penny is equal to one cent.

And one dollar is equal to 100 cents.

We have to find the fraction of penny and a dollar.

Therefore the fraction of penny and a dollar = `(1cent)/(100 cents).`

                                                                       = `(1/100)` penny.

                                                                       = 0.01 penny.
