how do you turn a fraction in to a decimal??
Divide the numerator by the denominator.
1/2 = 0.5
3/4 = 0.75
4/5 = ??
7/10 = ??
Lets take an example. 4/5
if you mark 4 is less than 5. So when we start to convert, if thenumerator is smaller thanthe denominator, the fraction starts. I mean we start with 0.(period)
Then we add a "0" to the numerator. So in our case, it will be now 40. Now devide 40 by 5 which is 8. So our result will be 0.8 (0. was added as 4 was smaller than 5)
