How do you write a mixed number as a decimal such as 1/2 and the whole number 3? Also 3/4 and the whole number 4. Also 1/5 and the whole number 7. Thank you who will may help me!:)

3 1/2 = 3.5
4 3/4 = 4.75
7 1/5 = 7.2
One way to think of decimals is to relate them to expressions of money.
Half a dollar = $.50
1/2 = .5
A quarter = $.25
1/4 = .25
Three quarters = $.75
3/4 = .75
