Convert 33.9 to binary.

2. Relevant equations

Division by two and remainders

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm unsure since it is .9. Using the dividing by two method with the remainders wouldn't account for that. Could I do something like this?

33.9 = 339 *10^-1, convert to binary (101010011) and then account for the scientific notation in some way?
