how do i change a fraction to a decimal? i really don't understand the movement of the decimal.

  • algebra - ,

    divide the numerator by the denominator.
    example 1/2 = .5

  • algebra - ,

    In above example, divide the 1 by 2, which goes zero times. Then you have to go to the tenths column, with the decimal placed after the one. 2 goes into 10 5 times, giving you .5

    Hope this helps a little more.
