To convert a fraction to decimal form, you would divide the numerator by the denominator. This will then express the ratio stated in the fraction as a proportion of parts of 10.
Fractions and Decimals:
Fractions and decimals can be used interchangeably, depending on what a person wants, and which is easier to express.
Often, converting a fraction to a decimal can result in a long decimal value, which may be non-terminating. In this case, the decimal needs to be rounded off, resulting in imprecision in the answer.
We use fractions and decimal values on a daily basis, with dollars being divided into 100 parts, cents, allowing them to be easily expressed as a fraction or a decimal. For example, a quarter (which is one quarter of a dollar) has a value of 25 cents, or 25/100 of one dollar.
