how do you turn fractions into decimals? what do you do with the remainders? example: 3/16---what would it be as a decimal?


To turn a fraction into a decimal, divide the top number by the bottom number. Instead of a fractional remainder, you need to put a decimal point and four zeroes after it. Keep dividing until it comes out even.

For example 3.0000 divided by 16 = 0.1875


thank you very much! I really understand it now!!! =)


3y-3x=6


What are you trying to solve? This is a linear equation, what does the problem ask for?
