What is \(\sqrt{0.25}\)?

C. 0.5

Explanation

Take 0.25 and convert it to a fraction: \(0.25=\frac{0.25}{1.00}=\frac{25}{100}=\frac{1}{4}\). Since \(0.25=\frac{1}{4}, \sqrt{0.25}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{\sqrt{1}}{\sqrt{4}}=\frac{1}{2}\). Since the answer choices are decimals, convert \(\frac{1}{2}\) into a decimal. The correct answer is 0.5.
