Hey how do you turn 5/8 into a decimal??

asked by Beth
  1. It is 5 divided by 8, which you could do on a calculator or by manual division.

    At school I had to learn all the decimal multiples of 1/8
    so
    0.125
    0.250
    0.475
    0.500
    0.675
    etc.

  2. All you have to do to turn a fraction into a decimal is divide the numerator by the denominator. 5 divided by 8 = 0.625.
