# How do you find 1/10th of a number?

#### Explicação:

Finding 1/10 of a number is the same as dividing it by 10.

To find a tenth of something simply multiply it by 1/10 and then simplify. That will be a tenth of it:

• O que é 1/10 of 20?

20 can be put over 1, since anything divided by 1 is itself. So do that and multiply:

1/10 xx 20/1 rarr 20/10 rarr 2

Here are a couple more examples:

• O que é 1/10 of 45?

1/10 xx 45/1 rarr 45/10 rarr 4.5

• O que é 1/10 of 896?

1/10 xx 896/1 rarr 896/10 rarr 89.6

So as you can see, all you have to do is divida o número por 10 and you've found one tenth of it.
