To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator by the denominator.

Example:

3/4 = 0.75

(Remember three quarters equal seventy-five cents.)

To change a decimal to a fraction, read the decimal.

Example: 0.80 = eighty hundredths = 80/100 = 4/5

You must divide the numerator by the denominator Example: 13/50= 13 divided by50 you would get 0.26 and that would be your answer!!!!!
