# A bit is one eighth of a dollar how many cents is 6 bits? My answer is 6 cents? I don't think I am right.

## A bot is 1/8 of 1.00 = 0.125 or 12.5 cents

2 bits = 1 quarter or 25 cents

6 * 0.125 = ?

## so would i do 12.5 times 6?

## my answer is 750 but i don't know if that is right and do i need a decimal??

**Multiply 6 * 0.125**

Be sure to include the decimal point

## is the answer 7.50????

## Does that answer make sense? 2 bits = 25 cents. 6 bits can't be over 7 dollars.

There are three decimal places in the problem. There should be three decimal places in the answer.
