Well in school we were reviewing percents, and one of the main things being discussed was how to convert between fractions, decimals, and percents. However I didn't understand how she explained converting fractions to decimals. She said that on the test we weren't allowed to use the method of dividing the numerator by the denominator, and her re-explanation left me even more confused. Her method had something to do with multiplying the fraction by 100 or something like that. All I remember is that it was all multiplying? If anybody knows what she was talking about, or a different way to convert fractions to decimals, I would appreciate the help. Thank you.
