Legal Math

Luke was supposed to convert 1/8 into a decimal by doing long division. I looked at his paper and only the answer was written down, so I asked him how he did that. He said, "I asked Emmett what half of 25 was, and he told me half of 24 was 12 so I wrote down 0.125." Well. I guess that'll do. (To catch you up: 1/8 is half of 1/4, which Luke already knows is 0.25 because it's easy and also experience with money)
