1 twentieth is 1.00 divided by 20 = 0.05. 17 twentieths are 0.05 x 17 = 0.85. The difference (take away) is then easy.

Hey Shishi!0.82 is equivalent to 82/100.17/20 is equivalent to 85/100. This is found by multiplying the top and bottom of the fraction by 5.Then you can see that the difference between 82/100 and 85/100 is simply 3/100.Good Luck

Multiply 17 over 20 by 5. That gives you an answer of. 85 over 100. 85-82=3 The answer is 3 over 100
