Solving Equations by Multiplying or Dividing DecimalsA little league player was at bat 15 times and had a batting average of 0.133 (rounded to the nearest thousandth). The batting average formula is a = , where a is the batting average, h is the number of hits, and n is the number of times at bat. Use the formula to find the number of hits she made.PRE-ALGEBRA LESSON 3-63-6
