15 kilograms of rice are separated equally into 4 containers. To get the number of kilograms of rice are in each container, we divide the total kilograms of rice by the number of containers. This will be:

15/4 =3 3/4kg as a fraction.

To convert the fraction to decimal, we divide 3 by 4 and add to 3. 3/4 equals 0.75. We then add 3 to 0.75. This will be:

Decimal of 3 3/4 = 3+0.75 = 3.75kg
