Im helping my son to find the area of a rectangle that is 7 3/8 inches and 4 inches the height.
I need to know how to convert the fraction into a whole number.
You can't convert a fraction to a whole number. The easiest way to do this problem is to convert the fraction to a decimal. Divide the numerator by the denominator. 7 3/8 = 7.375
A = 7.375 * 4
